Innovation, Business & Law Colloquium:
Health Care Reform Act
91:642
Prof. David Orentlicher
University of Iowa College of Law


In this course, we will discuss the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 and consider its implications for individuals, employers, insurance companies, physicians, nurses, and other health care professionals.  We also will consider the Act’s implications for Medicare and Medicaid, long term care, and other health care programs.  In addition to studying what the Act will do, we also will discuss where future legislation might be needed to fully reform the United States health care system.
 
Readings:  As a text for the course, we will be using CCH's Law, Explanation and Analysis of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (2010). There also will be supplementary readings available on this webpage.  For an online version of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, click here.

ATTENTION LIVE VIEWERS

 

When opening a new "application window," as when a power point presentation is opened, it may be necessary to re-size the window to view all of the content. In order to re-size the window, open the "view" menu on the top of the screen and choose an alternate layout from the "layouts" sub-menu. This will allow you to see the chat screen, video player and application window. After re-sizing the screen you can freely choose any other layout that you may prefer. For the Innovation, Business and Law Colloquium we suggest using the "Narrow Minimal Layout."

 

You also may want to open the PowerPoint presentation in a separate window on your computer by clicking on the PowerPoint presentation link under the listing for the class that you are watching.

 

If you are a first time user, it is recommended that you visit the Elluminate web site for a short tutorial and to configure your system for the presentation.
