October 18, 2016 660

Under the Affordable Care Act, dentists participating as providers in the Denti-Cal, Medicare Advantage and CHIP (formerly known as Healthy Families) programs and those who have received Meaningful Use funding are required to comply with new federal nondiscrimination policies. They must post a notice of nondiscrimination, post taglines in the top 15 non-English languages spoken in California and offer free language assistance, and post information regarding grievance procedures for practices with 15 or more employees. Also, they must complete and submit the Assurance of Compliance Form (HHS 690) to the Office of Civil Rights. The form may also be reviewed and electronically submitted through this website.
