Health care aims to prevent and treat illness and disease in order to maintain the physical and mental well-being of individuals. Nearly all industrialized nations provide universal, publicly-funded health care through a national system. The exception is the United States, where health care is largely provided by the private sector, although some public services are available for certain individuals.

State statutes comprise a large portion of law applicable to health care. State health care law ranges from regulation of the health insurance industry to rules governing cases of medical malpractice. State agencies and departments are usually responsible for implementing state health laws and regulations, as well as administering certain federally-funded health care programs.
