From the Certification Commission for Health Care Interpreters (CCHI)

In courts and through regulatory action, the administration is vigorously working to dismantle the Affordable Care Act (ACA). On May 24, 2019, the administration released a proposed regulation that would undermine or eliminate key protections of the ACA’s nondiscrimination provision, Section 1557, from individuals who have experienced discrimination in health care programs and settings. This Q&A by National Health Law Program attorneys Wayne Turner and Candace Gibson walks through the administration’s proposed changes to Section 1557 regulations, and what you can do to help stop the rollback of these important legal protections. The final section profiles individuals who have benefited from Section 1557 after experiencing discrimination in health care programs or settings.
