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.
