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 book is designed with the problems of pedagogy in mind. The materials are arranged to assist students to appreciate the relationships underlying various administrative-law doctrines. The materials also are intended to reveal the historical origins of those doctrines and their developments over time. With this new edition, Administrative Law, Cases and Materials, continues to present the complex substance of administrative law in a format that is both intellectually satisfying and easily understandable. In addition to carefully examining current law, students will become familiar with the relevant historical perspectives so necessary to appreciate the dynamics of today's law. They will become familiar with the so-called progressive movement and its regulatory offspring, the independent agency, with the New Deal regulatory agenda, with the post-World War II consensus embodying the Administrative Procedure Act, with the problem of capture, with aggressive modes of judicial review in response, with the problem ossification of rule-making, and with an array of judicial reinterpretations of settled precedents. This focus on doctrinal coherence and historical background provides a rich intellectual experience. This book also is available in a heavily discounted, three-hole punched, alternative loose-leaf version printed on 8 x 11 inch paper with wider margins and with the same pagination as the hardbound book.
