The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is the principal federal agency regulating health matters in the U.S., such as public health, food and drug safety, health insurance, and health-related research.
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
It is the mission of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) to enhance and protect the health and well-being of all Americans. It fulfills that mission by providing for effective health and human services and fostering advances in medicine, public health, and social services.
The rules promulgated by federal agencies are first published in the Federal Register (proposed and final) and then codified into the Code of Federal Regulations. Both titles are available free from the Government Publications Office.
Best Practice: Search federal regulations (also sometimes called rules) from the health law practice centers in Bloomberg Law, Lexis Nexis, or Westlaw.
