On May 18, 2016, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) published new rules that prohibit discrimination in certain health care programs and activities. Pikes Peak Hospice & Palliative Care already has non-discrimination policies in place. However, the new rules also extend the law to prohibit health care providers from discriminating based on sex, including a requirement to treat individuals consistent with their gender identity.
The rules also require providers to take reasonable steps to provide meaningful access to services for individuals with limited English proficiency (LEP). This may include providing timely, accurate, and free language assistance services, if necessary.
The Notice of Non-Discrimiination is provided in English and the other top 15 languages spoken by individuals in the state of Colorado with limited English proficiency under Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
