State and federal laws protect patients' interests in a wide range of areas, including patient privacy, available treatments, and informed consent. In order to help you make informed decisions regarding your health care, this section provides resources on patient rights and long-term care. You'll find articles on planning ahead for medical care, reading the fine print on prescription medication bottles, evaluating online health information, determining whether you need long-term care insurance, understanding the medical marijuana laws in your state, and more.
