Doug Dahl Provides Comments on Section 1557's Notification Rule

Corporate Counsel

Media Mentions

October 17, 2016

Bass, Berry & Sims attorney Doug Dahl provided comments for an article detailing the latest compliance deadline for healthcare entities subject to Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Under the regulations, which were issued in May, it is now illegal for any healthcare entity that receives federal funding to discriminate against patients on the basis of sex, race, color, national origin, age and disability. Beginning on October 16, 2016, all entities receiving government funding from Health and Human Services, including Medicaid and Medicare, are required to provide and post nondiscrimination notices. One challenge that Doug points out in the article is "that covered entities have been struggling with figuring out where to post notices and which publications qualify as significant enough to include them."

The full article, "Notification Rule for Federal Health Care Law Outlawing Gender and Sex Discrimination Takes Effect," was published by Corporate Counsel on October 14, 2016, and is available online.
