Advancing Non-discrimination in Healthcare:
A key aim in removing barriers to health
Ending health insurance discrimination against licensed providers of healthcare services is one of the most important objectives of IHPC’s policy work.
IHPC principals were part of the collaborative team of specialists who supported the work of former U.S. Senator Tom Harkin of Iowa, who lead the creation of the non-discrimination provisions of the Affordable Care Act that are set out in Section 2706. Building off of this federal statute, the CoverMyCare network of state-based advocates, practitioners, patients and policy experts continues to advocate and work for consumer access to all safe and effective licensed services.
