Nondiscrimination Notice Requirements; Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act
Time & Location
About The Event
This rule, effective October 2016, mandates that Covered Entities shall not discriminate against patients based on race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability. The rule requires Covered Entities to update their policies to include nondiscrimination policies as well as a grievance policy and to train their staff accordingly. Not any real news in that.
But, did you also know that Covered Entities are required to have a Language Access Plan for interacting with patients who have limited English proficiency? Section 1557 requires Covered Entities to post notices in their practice regarding nondiscrimination as well as to have nondiscrimination taglines translated into the top 15 non-English speaking languages in the state where the Covered Entity does business.
Need additional information on this law to update your existing policies or are you looking for a resource to train your employees? Either way this webinar will support either need.
