This is a survey course covering legal issues in health care delivery, health insurance financing, and the responsibilities of health care professionals to patients. Students will be introduced to the legal and policy considerations that have shaped the relationships between providers (physicians and hospitals), payers (public and private), and patients and how different areas of law have developed when applied to the healthcare industry.  We will consider implications of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and ongoing reform efforts for healthcare law and policy. In addition to presenting essential material for those intending to represent health care providers and payers, serve as health care regulators and policymakers, or advocate on behalf of individuals, the course offers students of all backgrounds an introduction to the legal governance of one-sixth of the U.S. economy.
