Allowing Discrimination!?: Trump Administration Proposes to Undo ACA’s Nondiscrimination Protections

This webinar covers the new proposed rule from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services that would weaken the Affordable Care Act’s prohibitions against discrimination in health care and erase protections against discrimination based on gender identity or sex.

The proposal specifically threatens access to care for certain population groups, but it additionally weakens nondiscrimination protections that apply to:

  • LGBTQ+ people;
  • People who access reproductive services; and
  • People with limited English proficiency

Featured Speakers Include:

  • Justin Mendoza, Partnerships Manager, Families USA
  • Cheryl Fish-Parcham, Director of Access Initiatives, Families USA
  • Luc Athayde-Rizzaro, Policy Counsel, National Center for Transgender Equality
  • Mara Youdelman, Managing Attorney, National Health Law Program
  • Shaina Goodman, Director of Policy for Reproductive Health and Rights, National Partnership for Women & Families
