Health Law

Lawyers representing individuals, families, businesses, labor organizations, and governmental units all encounter state and federal issues involving the structure, financing and operation of health care in the United States and elsewhere.

Health law includes an array of interrelated topics that range from health care payment methods to the regulation of the Medicare and Medicaid systems to the ethics of assisted reproductive technology.

Health lawyers also need to be aware of areas in which health care law might intersect with the regulation of the Internet — for example, privacy-related matters.

In recent decades, many federal laws have reshaped the parameters of U.S. health care, so health lawyers need to be familiar with state and federal laws and understand how each set of laws affects the other.
