HCM60200 - Legal, Regulatory, and Ethical Issues in Modern Healthcare Structures

(3 units)
This course brings an economic approach to understanding the forces driving change in health care. It will provide an economic and financial interpretation of the evolution of the health care system. The course examines legal, political, and policy issues from the perspective of self-interest groups and from the economic perspective of a market predicated on the notion that suppliers compete for customers on the basis of price and quality. It emphasizes the ongoing process and politics of health care reform. Students will analyze the impact of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 on expenditures in the health care system.
