Federal law requires patient interpreter services

A new federal rule, Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act, protects individuals from discrimination in health care on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, disability, and sex, including discrimination based on pregnancy, gender identity, and sex stereotyping.

ADA and MDA have provided resources to assist dentists in complying with Section 1557.
