Health Law Course

The health care “system” is a vast enterprise that is subjected to a bewildering array of regulatory inputs, including common law rules, administrative regulations, statutes, constitutional provisions, federalism principles, market forces, traditions, and professional norms, just to name a few. This course will provide an introduction to many of the areas of law that regulate the relationships between providers and patients and will explore how this regulation affects the quality of, access to, and costs associated with health care in the United States. Specific topics will include state regulation of medical practice through administrative (professional licensing boards) and common law (professional negligence and informed consent actions) means, and federal regulation through statutes including HIPAA, EMTALA, Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act and the federal Rehabilitation Act, Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act, the False Claims Act, Antikickback Statute, and Stark Laws.
