HHS Finalizes ACA Section 1557 Rule
Wednesday, June 17 2020

Final Rule Removes Gender Identity, Termination of Pregnancy, and Notice and Tagline Provisions

On June 12, 2020, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued a final rule that revises the implementation of the Affordable Care Act’s Section 1557 nondiscrimination provisions on gender identity and language access. Specifically, the final rule:

  • Removes gender identity and termination of pregnancy from being included as sex discrimination; and
  • Eliminates the requirement that covered health programs and activities distribute nondiscrimination notices and tagline translation notices in at least 15 languages to patients and customers.

The final rule is scheduled to be published in the Federal Register on June 19, 2020, and will become effective 60 days after publishing. The final rule does not affect the substantive Section 1557 provisions related to nondiscrimination on the basis of disability, race, color, age, national origin or sex.
