To ensure non-discriminatory COVID-19 treatment for children, young adults and others with disabilities or chronic medical conditions, we [Family Voices] wanted to be sure you are aware of a federal bulletin from the Office of Civil Rights, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

The Bulletin reminds health care providers that it is illegal to discriminate “on the basis of disability in HHS funded health programs or activities. These laws, like other civil rights statutes OCR enforces, remain in effect. As such, persons with disabilities should not be denied medical care on the basis of stereotypes, assessments of quality of life, or judgments about a person’s relative “worth” based on the presence or absence of disabilities or age. Decisions by covered entities concerning whether an individual is a candidate for treatment should be based on an individualized assessment of the patient based on the best available objective medical evidence.” See the entire bulletin:

BULLETIN: Civil Rights, HIPAA, and the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) (HHS Office of Civil Rights, March 28, 2020)

[https://www.hhs.gov/sites/default/files/ocr-bulletin-3-28-20.pdf]

Based on this Bulletin, disability advocates have developed a document to provide more specific direction:

APPLYING HHS’S GUIDANCE FOR STATES AND HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS ON AVOIDING DISABILITY-BASED DISCRIMINATION IN TREATMENT RATIONING (April 3, 2020)

[https://www.centerforpublicrep.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/Guidance-to-States-Hospitals_FINAL.pdf]

For more information on medical rationing, see the website of the Center for Public Representation at https://www.centerforpublicrep.org/covid-19-medical-rationing/.

The attached graphic and patient information form (from NY) might also be helpful.

If you become aware of any instances of discrimination based on disability or medical condition, or of state or facility policies that seem discriminatory, please let us know.

You can also file a complaint with the HHS Office of Civil Rights at: https://www.hhs.gov/ocr/complaints/index.html.

Edit: This has changed over the course of the day. Now, for many beneficiaries, filing is no longer required. Link in comments. It is still unclear how the changes will impact #SSI recipients. We will share updates as we receive them.

#PSA: Social Security beneficiaries who do not typically need to file taxes will need to file a simple tax return in order to receive their stimulus check.
