Product Description

This Law and the American Health Care System law school casebook provides a comprehensive collection of material for investigation of law and the American health care system. Chapters are devoted to topics ranging from regulation of health care companies and providers to fundamental constitutional and bioethical questions regarding the relationship among patients, governments, and health professionals. It covers financing and organization of health care, and explores legal aspects of quality of care issues.

This new edition  streamlines the presentation of the numerous doctrinal areas applicable to health care, organizes them in a more coherent, compact fashion, and weaves together doctrine and policy in a tighter fashion.

The number of major parts has been reduced from six to four: Access, Health Care Financing, Health Care Quality, and Regulation of Health Care Transactions. The first three parts have been built out of reorganized and updated pieces of the earlier edition, while Part Four is entirely new and encompasses the major fields of law that bear most directly on the business of health care: tax, fraud and abuse, and antitrust).

The different structure immeasurably strengthens the basic “architecture” of the book, while considerably shortening it. Particular topics in health care law, e.g., discrimination again persons with HIV, are discussed in the context of the larger themes — e.g., HIV as an access issue; HIV as an issue in the structure of insurance coverage, HIV as an issue in ensuring quality of care — rather than as add-on problems presented in ad hoc fashion.
