Improvements in technology and medical care have increased life expectancy by a considerable amount. Alongside these improvements, health care costs have risen dramatically. Because the health of the people in a nation reflects the health of the nation itself, health care law is vital for the stability of the Unites States. Preserving public health is a primary duty of the state. Health regulations and laws are therefore almost all state based. Many states delegate authority tosubordinate govermental agencies such as boards of health. These boards are created by legislative acts. Federal health law focuses on the activity of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). It administers a wide variety of agencies and programs, like providing financial assistance to needy individuals; conducting medical and scientific research; providing health care and advocacy services; and enforcing laws and regulations related to human services. An important branch of the HHS is the Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA), which oversees the Medicare and Medicaid Programs. Their goal is to ensure that elderly and needy individuals receive proper medical care.

  • Choosing a Lawyer
  • Ask some very basic and important questions to the lawyer:
    After you have furnished the full details of your case to the lawyer you must some basic questions that can give you an insight into how the lawyer will proceed. Make it a point to ask how what course of action the lawyer will take regarding your case, how long he thinks the case will carry on, details about his fee and how he will inform you about the manner in which the case is proceeding. While asking these important questions always judge whether the lawyer is trying to hide facts/ give round about answers, or is open in the way he gives his answers. It is best to work with a lawyer whose replies you are comfortable with.

  • What you should ask in a fixed fee case:
    A fixed fee is also called a standard fee and is usually chargeable by lawyers in routine cases. An example would be a simple private company formation for which a lawyer may charge all clients $2000. As the same suggests, a fixed fee should be 'fixed', however this should be clarified with the lawyer. There should be clarity about additional charges if any that are not included in the fixed fee.
