Federal Compliance

July 23, 2020: HHS’ Office for Civil Rights released guidelines for healthcare providers aimed at preventing discrimination based on race, color, and national origin during the COVID-19 pandemic. The guidance is applicable to group practices and providers that receive federal funding and suggests that these entities create proactive policies preventing discrimination, including:
  • Adopting policies to prevent harassment and discrimination;
  • Confirming existing policies and procedures with respect to COVID-19 related care does not exclude individuals on the basis of race, color, or national origin; and
  • Making available information available to individuals and patients on how the practice complies with anti-discrimination laws and regulations.
MGMA recommends members review these guidelines and use this as an opportunity to ensure compliance with existing federal laws.
