This work gives an overview of the impact of EU competition rules and internal market law on healthcare systems in Europe. Alongside a thorough discussion of healthcare provision and the medical professions, the book covers health insurance, pharmaceuticals, and medical devices. There is an examination of the impact of the four freedoms, the cartel and abuse of dominance prohibitions and merger control, as well as the rules on state aid and public procurement. The book also considers horizontal measures as they affect healthcare. Written by experts, this is an ideal tool for those requiring an in-depth discussion of this important area of EU law.
