Comments on Notice of Benefit and Payment Parameters for 2016

DREDF submitted comments on HHS proposed rules affecting implementation of portions of the Affordable Care Act that directly affect people with disabilities. In addition to supporting comments submitted by the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities (CCD), we urged HHS to issue comprehensive language access standards and technical support for navigator and non-navigator assistance personnel to ensure that people with communication disabilities have equal access to the Health Insurance Marketplace. We also urged HHS to direct Navigator assistance organizations to comply with federal disability rights laws and regulations.
