Protect the Health Care Rights Law Page by Community Catalyst

A rule proposed by the Trump administration would undermine enforcement of the Affordable Care Act's landmark nondiscrimination provision, known as Section 1557 or the Health Care Rights Law. While not actually repealing this section of the ACA—only Congress can do that—this rule would send the wrong message to health care providers, who could believe they have been given a green light to discriminate.

This would especially harm

  • Trans and gender-nonconforming people, who already experience significant obstacles to accessing all health care
  • LGBTQ+ people who do not conform to traditional sex stereotypes
  • People who need abortions or have had abortions in the past
  • People with limited English proficiency, who need language access services
