It is crucial for health care providers and insurers to address changing federal authorities aimed at protecting access to care. Changes in the law and its interpretation can impact health care operations; the terms, conditions, and administration of coverage; plan and provider communications with enrollees and patients; health care administration; and rules of conduct.

The new edition of Federal Health Care Discrimination Law will provide a solid foundation and help you assess evolving risks. The author addresses the full range of federal authority in the health care context, including:

  • Civil rights laws on race, sex, disability, and age
  • Affordable Care Act (ACA) Section 1557
  • Mental health parity laws
  • Freedom of religion and conscience clauses
  • Communications disability and limited English proficiency requirements
  • Critical race theory and gender identity
  • How civil rights laws apply to coverage under the federal health care programs and individual insurance

Federal Health Care Discrimination Law, Second Edition also expands its treatment of the historical debates over federal health care discrimination laws and regulatory approaches, describing the evolution of authority across time and changing administrations.
