Welcome to FindLaw's section on health care laws for Iowans, with information pertaining to patients' rights and related health care issues. While the federal government regulates health care to some extent -- such as Medicare, veterans' health benefits, and the federal Affordable Care Act -- the majority of health care laws originate at the state level. In this section, you will find articles about euthanasia (or, more specifically, physician-assisted suicide), the rules for drafting a durable power of attorney, privacy rights of patients, and more.
