All recipients of federal financial assistance from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) are required to have an "Assurance of Compliance with Non-Discrimination Laws and Regulations" on file with HHS. This requires a statement that recipient is in compliance with:

  • Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
  • Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973
  • Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972
  • The Age Discrimination Act of 1975
  • Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act of 2010

These laws and regulations require recipients to take certain steps to ensure non-discrimination. We encourage you to review the Technical Assistance for Medicare Providers and Applicants page for further information.
