LAW 2978 - Comparative Health Care Regulation
This intensive course will compare the governmental approaches to regulating health care services in the United States and Italy, within the context of broader EU legislation and other EU countries. Given the complexity of the two national systems and the EU context, the goal is not to survey these regulatory systems, but to examine a few topics that will highlight differences in the regulatory solutions to the same health care problems, as well as differences in the principles and policies invoked to justify those solutions. The focus will be on the reasons given for different approaches to dealing with similar problems. Topics will be selected from a range of areas and problems, from the regulation of access to health care and reimbursement for health-care services, to regulation of the quality and costs of health care.
