Health Care Law

Health care law reflects a broad scope of federal and state laws that control public and private health insurance matters, financing, torts, contracts, administrative law, corporation, antitrust, and ethics of the health care sector. The scope of federal health care law surrounds the activity of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). This body oversees a wide spectrum of agencies and health care programs, such as supplementing financial aid to needy individuals, conducting research in the medical field, offering advocacy and health care services, and governing the rules and laws associated with human services.

Federal health law focuses on the activity of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). It administers a wide variety of agencies and programs, like providing financial assistance to needy individuals; conducting medical and scientific research; providing health care and advocacy services; and enforcing laws and regulations related to human services. The HHS is responsible for overseeing the Medicare and Medicaid Programs. Their goal is to ensure that elderly and needy individuals receive proper medical care. Many other laws administered by other agencies deal with health issues.
