This course examines the law that controls access to health care, the cost of health care and the quality of health care delivered in the United States. Employing health economics as an overarching paradigm, the course surveys a wide range of law including the federal law that prohibits patient dumping, managed care liability, restraints of trade and fraud; regulatory law that controls federal financing programs such as Medicare and Medicaid; and state laws that control private insurance financing, for-profit conversions and unfair trade practices. There are no pre-requisites or caps in this class. Grading is based upon a 3-hour examination and class participation.
