Updated ACA Mandate Goes into Effect July 18
The Office for Civil Rights has issued a final rule that prohibits health care entities, like dental practices, that receive certain federal financial assistance, including Medicaid and CHIP, from discriminating based on race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability. The rule, which goes into effect July 18 and implements Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act, requires the affected parties by October 16 to post taglines in multiple languages and nondiscrimination notices in their offices, on their websites and in significant publications and communications.
The ADA has prepared a number of resources to help members comply with this rule, including a checklist, Q&A and sample documents. These resources are available at no cost to ADA members atsuccess.ada.org.
According to the ADA’s Health Policy Institute, 42 percent of dentists across the country were enrolled in Medicaid programs in 2014, and will therefore be subject to this rule. Read more in ADA News.
