"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." - publisher's description

By Miller, Lisa. American Bar Association. ;2019-10. 2019.
The U.S. federal government, as well as every state and territory of the United States, maintains an expansive administrative apparatus that each year affects millions of individuals, businesses, and institutions. Though they have much in common, the federal government, each state government, and the government of every U.S. territory have each developed unique approaches to administrative law and process. This book helps guide practitioners as they follow the Administrative Procedures Act (APA) requirements of the U.S. federal government, a particular state, or a territory of the United States in which counsel's matter is in process. Because every territory has a body of law to guide participants in the administrative process, advocates should consult these governmental resources for guidance and direction in their particular locations. Practitioners should use the examples in this volume as illustrative instructional guidance.

Originally published in 2007, the FTC Practice and Procedure Manual has been updated to reflect important developments at the agency in recent years. The FTC continues to be an active and influential authority in both competition and consumer protection matters, and an understanding of the agency is necessary for everyone who practices in those fields. The FTC Practice and Procedure Manual is intended to provide a "how-to" guide for lawyers and parties involved in both competition and consumer protection matters before the FTC. The manual's primary focus is on procedural matters rather than substantive antitrust or consumer protection law (subjects covered by other Section publications). It outlines the FTC's statutory authority, in particular Section 5 of the FTC Act, underlying the competition and consumer protection missions. It also describes in detail the FTC's organizational structure and rules, procedural issues relating to mergers, rules and procedures for investigations (incl…
