Health Law

Federal and state laws and regulations are complex and have an enormous impact on health care. The Center for Health Law and Economics at UMass Medical School can help navigate these rules. Our health lawyers have significant expertise in the following:

Medicaid/CHIP
The staff at the Center for Health Law and Economics has comprehensive knowledge of the complicated state and federal rules governing Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).

Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
Our team can help ensure that state reform efforts are designed in accordance with this important civil rights legislation.

Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA)
The Center for Health Law and Economics can help public policy makers and officials avoid decisions that could have implications relative to ERISA.

State Financing Law and Administrative Procedures Act
Our staff can ensure that new policies do not conflict with the goals of the State Financing Law and Administrative Procedures Act.
