Administrator Access


There are no notices at this time.


Congress and the President engage in legislative initiatives affected by lobbying and public interest groups and others, and the Department of Health and Human Services including the Food and Drug Administration engage in rule-making and create policies and guidances. Eventually, providers, payers, and others must construe and provide care, devices, and payments based upon an understanding of the results of the legislative and administrative processes. In this course, we will consider how laws and rules are created and implemented, and how and whether or not the results reflect the goals of those involved in the legislative and regulatory processes.
