Nondiscriminatory Quality Healthcare Services
Some groups of people have been found to have barriers to health care service access:
- Certain racial and ethnic groups
- Limited English proficient persons
- People with disabilities
- The elderly
To ensure nondiscrimination and increase the number of people who have access to quality health care services, the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) investigates HHS-funded programs and services. This is to ensure they comply with applicable federal civil rights laws.
