Product Description

This innovative casebook explores and integrates the legal and policy aspects of health care financing/delivery, and of public health. In a readily teachable format, the casebook delivers a critical analysis of the design and governance of the American health care and public health systems. The casebook provides comprehensive coverage of the organization, financing, and delivery of the individual health care and population/public health systems. It also explores the deep interconnections between these two systems and the critical role of the Affordable Care Act in shaping future legal oversight. The book thus challenges students to think about how the legal doctrine governing both systems has developed over time, and how it should evolve going forward. It represents the most up-to-date and systematic coverage of the health system in the new era of the Affordable Care Act and does so in a highly accessible and engaging pedagogic style. Having read many Health Law textbooks, I can truly say, this one is remarkable, easy for students to read, yet possessing a deep, thesis-like approach. And, such an Introduction! I do not believe I have ever read such an all-encompassing Introduction. Everything is covered, and the list of Article References is such a change from case law references, and so helpful to expand on any subject. And, probably most importantly, they have a chance to understand Health and Public Health at the same time. Usually, I am fairly reserved in my praise for educational materials, but this time I could not contain my excitement in finding such an appropriate text for future possible Health Lawyers.
