An Overview of Health Care Law
Health care law is an extensive, diverse field of law that encompasses all legal issues relating to the health care industry. Attorneys working in health care law may deal with—among other issues—access to care, insurance coverage, ethical choices, safety of food and drugs, and disease prevention. Health care attorneys might represent any number of parties in this industry, including hospitals, care centers, insurers, manufacturers, doctors, and patients themselves.
The health care industry is highly regulated. Over the past 25 years, a number of major pieces of legislation have been enacted that have reshaped the health care industry. These laws include the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996, Pub.L. No. 104–191; the Children's Health Insurance Reauthorization Act of 2009, Pub.L. No. 111-3; and the Affordable Care Act of 2010, 42 U.S.C. § 18001. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) also regularly issues regulations regarding the health of Americans.
Who Should Take CLE Courses in Health Care Law?
Health care is one of the biggest industries in America. In 2018, Americans spent $3.65 trillion on health care. As the population ages, it is likely that the health care industry will only grow larger. Attorneys already in the industry (including insurance lawyers, medical-malpractice attorneys, personal-injury lawyers, and others), or those seeking to join a growing practice area, should consider taking a CLE course in health care law. And even lawyers who don't actively practice in health care would likely benefit from better understanding an industry that affects us all.
