If standard treatments are refused will it affect Medicare?
My Dad has had a stroke, his doctor wants him on statins, blood thinners and three different blood pressure medications. Dad does not agree with present philosopy on treatment and wishes to try something more natural for stroke prevention. He has been told he might have to sign a paper which documents his refusal and releases the doctor from responsibility. Medicare is his only insurance and consequently he is concerned about Medicare coverage if a doctor's recommendation is refused.
