The Impact of Health Insurance Reform on the Law Governing the Physician-Patient Relationship

Conclusion: It is, of course, too early to know what the legal climate surrounding medicine will look like after health care reform. New regulations may bring new problems. The full impact of a plan will depend heavily on its technical details, its regulatory structures, the processes used, and the people who implement them. Nevertheless, reform that moves us toward universal coverage need not impair the physician-patient relationship. Although federal regulation will certainly increase, the reduction of conflicting standards on providers and financial constraints on patients may bring freedoms to the physician-patient relationship that have not been felt in many decades.
