Civil Rights

The DHCFP assists the federal Department of Health and Human Services Office for Civil Rights with oversight of several civil rights regulations. These regulations prohibit discrimination, including health care provider conscience rights, on the basis of race, color, national origin, disability, age and, in certain circumstances, sex and religion, in programs and activities that receive financial assistance from HHS.  The Office for Civil Rights also enforces a Federal law and regulation that prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in health care and social service programs of state and local governments. See Civil Rights Regulations.
