Course Description

This course will provide an in-depth look at the Medicare Program with a focus on coverage, payment, and compliance requirements for health care providers. Instructors will employ several practical skills exercises and problem-solving elements requiring students to digest client fact patterns and provide analysis. The ultimate goal is that the student be able to (1) issue spot; (2) develop skills to counsel clients in a complicated legal/regulatory environment; (3) know the resources/sources of law that lawyers access to evaluate issues and, of course, have an understanding of how to make sense of those resources; and (4) get a sense of the role judgment plays in advising clients and handling matters that arise in practice.
