In June, the Trump Administration finalized significant rollbacks to regulations implementing the Health Care Rights Law, otherwise known as Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act. Many of those changes went into effect in August and harm older adults, particularly those with Limited English Proficiency (LEP), women, LGBTQ individuals, and people with disabilities. This webcast, Rollbacks in the Health Care Rights Rule and Related Litigation, provides an overview of the changes in the final rule and the particular impact on low-income older adults. We will focus on the removal and weakening of protections for LEP older adults and how advocates can continue asserting the rights of older adults to receive healthcare free from discrimination. We also review the latest developments with respect to the legal challenges mounted against the final rule.
Who Should Participate:
Aging and legal advocates, community-based providers, local government partners, and others advocating on behalf of low-income older adults.
Natalie Kean, Senior Staff Attorney, Justice in Aging
Denny Chan, Senior Staff Attorney, Justice in Aging
