Discrimination in Health Care

The Affordable Care Act’s Section 1557, also known as the Health Care Rights Law, protects women, members of the LGBT+ community, people with disabilities, and people of any national, racial, or ethnic origin from being discriminated against by insurers or healthcare providers. The rule clarifies earlier-existing legislation to disallow any discrimination on the above bases. When the rule was adopted by the Department of Health and Human Services in 2016, it became easier for members of marginalized groups to enforce their rights and fight back against discrimination in healthcare. Rolling back or rewriting this rule could make it easier for healthcare providers and insurance companies to deny coverage and services to members of these groups, meaning millions of people could be denied access to needed healthcare services or be forced to pay exorbitant out-of-pocket fees.

M&S is investigating a potential fraud case regarding the pricing of some of the top-selling insulin drugs, which are used in the treatment of Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. The manufacturers of many insulin drugs have dramatically increased the list prices of insulin drugs, including Novolog, Humalog, Lantus and Levemir, by over 160% in the last five years.

With the trend towards higher-deductible health plans, including “bronze” and “silver” ACA health plans, many people must pay the full list price for these drugs, or a percentage of the list price. Drug manufacturers insist that the “list price” isn’t the “real” price, but that is the price that millions of people must pay. The prices have gotten so high that some diabetics have no choice but to limit or forgo this essential medicine. M&S would seek to reduce the price of these drugs, and recover damages for individuals who have overpaid. Learn More
