Medicaid Providers Required to Provide Interpretation Services to Those with Limited English Proficiency


The enforcement of Section 1557 of the Affordable Care prohibits entities that receive federal financial assistance from discriminating on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, disability and sex.  The rule applies to Medicaid providers. Compliance requirements include requiring covered entities to "provide meaningful access to individuals with limited English proficiency" as well as providing qualified interpreters and translators. The compliance date for the notices is Oct. 16. The rest of the rule went into effect July 18.

The rule requires offices to post notices of nondiscrimination as well as taglines in the top 15 non-English languages spoken in the state indicating that free language assistance services are available.
The notices must be posted in the dental office, on the website and in any significant publications and communications. For smaller items, such as postcards and tri-fold brochures, the practice may use a shorter nondiscrimination statement and taglines in the state's top two non-English languages spoken.

This link provides the translated information offices are required to post: http://www.hhs.gov/civil-rights/for-individuals/section-1557/translated-resources/index.html.

The 15 most spoken languages (other than English) in South Dakota are German; Chinese; Karen; Vietnamese; Nepali; Serbo-Croatian; Amharic; Sudanic; Tagalog; Korean; Russian; Cushite; Ukrainian; and, French.

 

Medicaid providers in South Dakota have access to live translation services Delta’s language line. 

 

Additionally, the ADA has prepared resources to aid in compliance with the rule, including an FAQ and checklist. Visit ADA.org/1557. There are also sample materials available on the OCR's website at www.hhs.gov/ocr.
