Tim has written widely on the subject. He is a co-author of a casebook, Health Law, and the author of Health Care Coverage Determinations: An International Comparative Study; Disentitlement? The Threats Facing our Public Health Care Programs and a Rights-Based Response; and Readings in Comparative Health Law and Bioethics. Now he is adding his expertise to The Arena, a feature of Politico’s Web site. You can read his posts here.
