What is the CLCP™ Credential?

CLCP™ The purpose of the Certified Life Care Planner examination is to assess the knowledge and skills that are necessary for the processing, documentation, and the writing of the life care plan of a disabled or injured individual. The purpose of the examination as stated above supports our mission statement in that the ICHCC™ is charged with "...developing and administering examinations that assess the knowledge and skills that comprise the essential functions required of life care planners..."


Why is life care planning certification important in your practice?

The answer lies within the litigious nature of this specialized health care delivery service and the need to protect the consumer of services. The consumer of services can be the third-party benefit provider/defense counsel or the disabled person/plaintiff counsel, and any other referral source that may include but not limited to attending physicians, rehabilitation program medical directors, or family members.

Consumer protection is achieved through the policy structure of the ICHCC™ such that by obtaining the Certified Life Care Planner credential, the candidate agrees to:

  1. Be peer reviewed
  2. Adhere to a set of practice standards and ethical guidelines that are research-based
  3. Be scrutinized by a governing board regarding his or her practice behaviors
  4. Be disciplined in the event of a finding of fact regarding inappropriate practice behaviors and/or outcomes
