Yu-Fan Ma What legal risks are present when entering into and working under a health care contract? First of all, a contract in health care is referring to a voluntary agreement between the parties: a payer and a participating physician (Harris, 2007). As the government decides to control the health care cost adopting the third-party payers, such as managed care organizations (MCOs), health insurance companies (HMOs), and health insurance companies (Harris, 2007). With that, a contract between those parties can become very tricky and challenging. Example of such contract between an MCO and a physician, the process of termination a contract, either for cause or without cause, has legal risks involved between the two parties. These legal risks can further extend to malpractice, negligence, or breach of confidentiality, etc. It is very important for health care professionals to have good understanding the legal aspects behind the health care contracts. HCAs should well aware and anticipate these legal risks to ensure to protect the public, employees and organization.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
