Course Details

Health Care Law & Regulation: State

This course is designed to introduce students to the regulatory scheme that governs the US health care system, with an emphasis on matters traditionally regulated by state governments. In addition to other topics, we will explore the manner in which the delivery of health care services and products is regulated to protect significant individual and societal interests such as patient autonomy, the quality of medical care, and market competition. By the end of the course, students will have been introduced to some of the key bodies of state health care regulation, such as: regulating informed consent; requiring professional licensure — including the regulation of telemedicine and the activities of alternative providers; and seeking to assure professional autonomy – such as anti-fee-splitting laws and the prohibition against the corporate practice of medicine. This information will enable students to play an active role in identifying, understanding and navigating the State regulations applicable to projects with which they will become professionally involved. Grades will be based on a combination of class participation, in-class projects and presentations, and a short written project.
