Quality and dependable health care is an extremely important part of our society. However, the laws and regulations that govern the various healthcare programs in the United States can be extremely complicated. Health care expenditures are well into the trillions of dollars each year and federal and state programs are often administered by a massive bureaucracy that can be difficult to navigate. This can be true for both patients as well as medical professionals, both of whom may be extremely vested in the way that health care benefits are administered.
