HAP Opposes Proposed Rule That Would Allow Discrimination in Healthcare

The Homeless Advocacy Project submitted comments opposing a proposed rule that would amend regulations that implement Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act (RIN 0945-AAll). As a legal services program dedicated to the elimination of homelessness, we are compelled to oppose the proposed action which is without justification and will undoubtedly lead to decreased essential medical care for individuals experiencing housing instability and homelessness. We urge HHS to withdraw the proposed rule.
