This Symposium brings together prominent practitioners and academic commentators in the field of health law. They are the authors of leading casebooks, treatises, and articles, and they craft the agreements that make "managed care" a practical reality. Collectively these authors explore a variety of cutting edge legal issues as our health system moves from a "fee-for-service" paradigm to one of managed care. These articles address such issues as tort liability for negligent care, fraud and abuse, disclosure of economic incentives to control costs, and antitrust. These seemingly disparate topics are united by a common theme: the need to adapt legal doctrines formulated under the fee-for-service paradigm to the new realities of managed care.
