About the Symposium

This year's Symposium will explore the evolution of health care payment, with a particular emphasis on novel payment options. The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed significant fragmentation within the American health care system, particularly in the context of health care payment; this, in turn, can have a significant impact on the effective and efficient delivery of care. It is well recognized that the cost of health care has become increasingly unaffordable for many patients, adversely affecting their ability to access needed health services. At the same time, payment structures have significant consequences for individual health care providers as well as institutional stakeholders like health care systems, facilities, insurers, and pharmaceutical companies.

About About Annals of Health Law & Life Sciences

Twice yearly (Winter and Summer) the Beazley Institute for Health Law and Policy publishes Annals of Health Law & Life Sciences, The Health Policy and Law Review of Loyola University Chicago. Annals contains articles of general interest in health law, which are deemed by the editors to make a contribution to the teaching, practice, and/or public policy surrounding health law. Past volumes have focused on corporate, regulatory, bioethical, and pharmaceutical issues, as well as patient rights and advocacy. Through this publication, health law students are afforded the opportunity to edit a law review article.

Advance Directive is an online publication of Annals of Health Law & Life Sciences, which is also published twice yearly (Fall and Spring). Similar to AnnalsAdvance Directive publishes articles that provide insight into the divergent areas of health law. Advance Directive allows health law students to write short articles regarding current health law topics, which are often at the crux of debate amongst legislators, practitioners, and academics.
