  • 1.  Section 1557 of the ACA

    Posted 10-11-2022 11:11 AM
    Good morning,

    I understand that Section 1557 of the ACA is undergoing proposed rule changes that may go into effect in the next 4 to 6 months. However, I'm trying to determine if any changes to Section 1557 have taken place since 2019. The only thing I can find is the Notice of Interpretation and Enforcement (link below) that interprets non discrimination on the basis of sex to include 1) discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation; and (2) discrimination on the basis of gender identity.

    I'm in the process of a three year review of this policy internally and would appreciate any feedback you can give.

    Thank you,

    Lynda
