Wake Forest School of Law Professor Mark Hall, who is one of the nation’s leading scholars in the areas of health-care law and policy and medical and bioethics, was quoted in this week’s New York Times article, “Health Suits Stir Concerns on Court Partisanship,” and Washington Post article: “Fate of health-care law likely to be decided by Supreme Court.”
He was also quoted in the Bloomberg story, “U.S. health-care law requirement thrown out by judge.”
Hall was recently appointed to one of the federal advisory boards that is implementing a part of the new health-care reform law. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act requires the Secretary of Health and Human Services to establish the Consumer Operated and Oriented Plan Program, and provides for an Advisory Board to the program [Section 1322 and Section 10104, Public Law 111-148].
Hall is the author or editor of fifteen books, including Making Medical Spending Decisions (Oxford University Press), and Health Care Law and Ethics (Aspen), he is currently engaged in research in the areas of consumer-driven health care, doctor/patient trust, insurance regulation, and genetics. He has published scholarship in the law reviews at Berkeley, Chicago, Duke, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Stanford, and his articles have been reprinted in a dozen casebooks and anthologies.
Hall also teaches in the MBA program at the Wake Forest Schools of Business and is on the research faculty at Wake Forest’s Medical School. He regularly consults with government officials, foundations and think tanks about health-care public policy issues.
