The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) held a comment period on a Proposed Rule they plan to implement. The Rule reverses a previous 2020 rule that narrowed the scope of protections against discrimination in healthcare. Patients Rising Now (PRN) submitted comments to HHS on the importance of these protections and thanked them for their efforts to protect patient access to care. PRN also took the opportunity to identify other forms of discrimination taking place that the Proposed Rule doesn’t directly address, but help many patients accross the country if addressed. PRN wants to thank Secretary Becerra and HHS for these efforts and we encourage everyone to read the letter.
