AHIP Responds to Final Rule Seeking to Eliminate Nondiscrimination Protections in Health Care

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Matt Eyles, president and CEO of America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), issued this statement following the finalization of the rule, Nondiscrimination in Health and Health Education Programs or Activities, which seeks to eliminate nondiscrimination protections in Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act:

Every single American deserves affordable, quality health care regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, or disability. That is the firm commitment of AHIP’s members – which together serve hundreds of millions of Americans. We resolutely disagree with any attempt to remove protections in federal law that prohibit discrimination
