Statement on HHS final rule to revise non-discrimination provision under the Affordable Care Act

Rick Pollack
President and CEO
American Hospital Association

June 12, 2020

Hospitals and health systems value every individual we have the privilege of serving, regardless of race, religion, national origin, sexual orientation or gender identity. That is why we urged the administration to not move forward with changes to non-discrimination protections. We are deeply disappointed that this rule weakens important protections for patients and could limit coverage. Treating all with dignity and respect will continue to guide us in everything we do.
