HHS – Employment Laws
Many organizations that provide patient care have published Patient Rights that cover a variety of issues such as access to information, consent prior to medical procedures, confidentiality, the cost of coverage and potential conflicts of interest from the healthcare provider regarding their care. This course offers an in-depth review of new patient rights created by the Affordable Care Act and is provided to update staff on recent changes in the law. We will discuss treatment and care, alternative options, recovery time and the new legal protections against discriminatory rates.
