As the nondiscrimination provision of the Affordable Care Act, Section 1557 builds upon long-standing federal civil rights laws and prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability in health programs or activities that receive federal financial assistance.  Section 1557 applies nondiscrimination provisions from several federal civil right laws to health programs or activities that receive funding from or administered by the Department of Health and Human Services.   Key provisions include:

  • Providing language assistance services for individuals with Limited English Proficiency (LEP);
  • Ensuring effective communication with individuals with disabilities;
  • Establishing grievance procedures and designating an employee as compliance coordinator; and,
  • Informing individuals about nondiscrimination and accessibility requirements.

This webinar will provide an overview of the requirements and the impact on health center operations as well as tips and tools for compliance.
