This Nutshell addresses the administrative law governing the financing and delivery of health care. Administrative law governs the administrative operations of government agencies. It sets the powers that administrative agencies may exercise, establishes the legal principles governing the exercise of those powers, and provides legal remedies to those aggrieved by the actions of agencies. State and federal agencies are deeply involved in the financing and delivery of health care. They address public health, licensure of professionals and facilities and financing health care services through public health insurance programs. The reach of administrative law governing state and federal healthcare agencies is immense and immensely important to the financing and delivery of American health care.

This pioneering book offers the most comprehensive and teachable compilation of materials on public health law now available. One of the challenges of teaching public health law is that the subject matter is not self-contained and touches every other body of law. This book solves that problem by organizing and integrating the material to address (1) cross-cutting themes in public health policy and (2) the policy tools used by public health policymakers and practitioners. In perhaps its most exciting innovation, Bonnie and Bernheim have constructed an intriguing and diverse menu of teachable units focused on specific policy problems or case studies in public health action. Each case study weaves together the perspectives of law, ethics and public policy. This book is richly interdisciplinary. Although the basic anatomy of the book is organized around the law, the materials feature the empirical perspectives of the public health sciences and draw on cross-cutting themes and normative frameworks of applied ethics and public policy. Although designed for students of law, the book can easily be adapted to courses designed for students in public health and public policy programs and other professional courses examining the role of law and public policy in advancing population health.

Legislation and Regulation in a Nutshell

While traditional American legal education has focused primarily on the judicial branch of government, legislatures and regulatory agencies are responsible for the vast majority of today's law creation and law implementation, in fields from health insurance regulation, to motor vehicle operation, to environmental protection, to the mechanics of voting, to stimulating the economy, to the criminalization of internet piracy, to the distribution of tax burdens, to name only some. Because well-equipped attorneys need a comprehensive grounding in legislative and regulatory processes and the relationships among all three branches of government, many law schools now teach some version of a course in Legislation and Regulation in the first year. This Nutshell addresses all the major topics of these courses, including the central question of how courts and agencies should interpret ambiguous statutes. Part I describes the functioning of modern-day legislatures and administrative agencies, including not only their essential mechanics but also theories of democratic representation. Part II then builds on this foundation to develop the principal theories and doctrines of statutory and regulatory interpretation. It includes detailed discussions of the various "intrinsic" and "extrinsic" interpretive tools, as well as the competing interpretive approaches of Textualism and Purposivism. It also includes a chapter devoted to the Chevron doctrine and the question of how courts should review agency interpretations of statutes.
