Why this Matters:
The plaintiffs argue that a federal regulation implementing the Affordable Care Act’s nondiscrimination protections — weakening certain language access requirements for people with limited English proficiency — violates the Administrative Procedure Act. The nondiscrimination protections included in the Affordable Care Act protect various communities on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, disability, or sex, that have historically faced particular difficulties accessing health care services, and where such patients have faced worse health outcomes.
Eroding nondiscrimination protections for people with limited English proficiency would expose them to greater challenges in accessing needed services and care.
