Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Executive Order 13166

Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Executive Order 13166 make the failure of recipients of Federal financial funding to provide language access a form of national origin discrimination. Any organization receiving any Federal financial assistance, including Medicare, Medicaid, and/or CHIP, is subject to this law.

Section 1557 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act prohibits discrimination on the basis of national origin. Having ongoing linguistic support for interpretation and translation is thus paramount to staying compliant with the law by providing an equal level of care to all patients.

A variety of Federal, State and local laws require or encourage medical practitioners to provide language access to LEP patients. The question is how to minimize the cost of providing this access without the risk of reducing the QoS. 

Technology advances can reduce resource and cost issues. For example, a facility, which may not be required to provide an in-person interpreter, may now be able to provide interpretive services through Video Remote Interpreting (VRI) or over-the-phone interpreting (OPI).
