Health Care Discrimination
Federal law specifically protects individuals from many forms of discrimination in the provision of health care services. For example, those who qualify for federal health insurance programs such as Medicare or Medicaid may not be the subject of discrimination based on gender, race or national origin. These protections can extend to facilities providing services under government health programs such as extended care facilities and hospitals. Use the resources below to learn more.
