Course Details

Health Care Law & Regulation: Federal

Through Medicare, Medicaid and various other health care programs, the Federal government is responsible for a significant percentage of national health care expenditures. Several bodies of law have developed to protect against the possibility that these expenditures are being exploited through the provision of sub-standard, unnecessary, or overly expensive goods and services. We will focus primarily on the criminal and civil laws that are incidental to Federal government’s role in health care finance. By the end of the course, students will have been introduced to some of the key bodies of Federal health care regulation, including the Federal Anti-Kickback Statute, Stark law, Sunshine/Open Payments Act and the False Claims Act. This will enable students to play an active role in identifying, understanding and navigating the Federal 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.
