Analysis of the laws prohibiting discrimination by health providers and insurers.
Federal Health Care Discrimination Law assists health care providers and plans in understanding the laws that address discrimination in health care and coverage.
ACA Section 1557 and related laws require new inquiries into health care operations, affecting the terms, conditions, and administration of coverage; plan and provider communications with enrollees and patients; and hospital administration and rules of conduct.
This treatise includes discussion of:
The major categories of discrimination—race, color, national origin, sex, disability, and age—and how they have been applied in the health care context
Duties under Section 1557 and the other Federal financial assistance (FFA) Acts, including when a health program or activity is subject to them
The Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA) and the complex regulatory schemes interpreting it, as well as state and federal mental health parity acts
Application of discrimination law to private coverage such as employer-provided and individual insurance
Requirements of Federal health coverage programs, including Medicare, Medicaid, FEHBP, and TRICARE
Implementation of laws regarding Limited English Proficiency and communication disabilities in health care settings
The treatise also contains key sample policies and checklists, provided by the American Health Lawyers Association, covering non-discrimination language for plan-provider agreements, notice and tagline compliance, fitness for duty, immigration enforcement, drug testing, LGBT-inclusive visitation, and more.
