1D DOJ Barrier Free Healthcare Initiatve

1D DOJ Barrier Free Healthcare Initiatve

The Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division in partnership with the United States Attorneys’ Offices across the nation have instituted the Barrier-Free Health Care Initiative, which targets their enforcement efforts on access to health care providers for individuals (patients and companions) with disabilities. The Barrier-Free Health Care Initiative is a multi-phase initiative that includes effective communication for people who are deaf or having hearing loss, physical access to medical care for people with mobility disabilities, and equal access to treatment for people who have HIV/AIDS. This program will focus on the ADA legal principles applicable in health care settings, recent DOJ enforcement efforts, including an exploration of actual cases against health care providers including hospitals, physicians, and skilled nursing facilities.
