About the Product

The Tenth Edition of Problems in Health Care Law continues to be the authoritative foundational textbook that covers the key components of our legal system and its application to our healthcare system. Students will come away with a clear understanding of how individual rights are defined and protected in the health care setting; how healthcare services are defined, insured and paid for; how individual providers organize and govern themselves and many other core features of how our healthcare system is organized and administered.
