Californians frequently do not get the kind of care that they want at the end of their lives. This report documents research on end-of-life care for Medicare beneficiaries, and analyses it in light of what is known about Californian's preferences for care as they approach death. The research found sharp variation that cannot be explained by differences among patients in age, sex, or race.
