Patient’s Bill Of Rights

The Affordable Care Act offers several new protections known as the “Patients‘ Bill of Rights.” The Center for Family Health and Education fully supports these patient rights and encourages patients to ask questions if they have concern about the health treatment they’re receiving. These patient rights includes:

 

  • Ensuring coverage for people with pre-existing conditions
  • Ensuring the right to choose a doctor
  • Ensuring fair treatment of emergency care
  • Making sure policies can’t be canceled unfairly
  • Ending annual and lifetime limits
  • Enhancing access to preventive services
  • Ensuring the right to appeal health plan decisions
  • Ensuring health coverage for young adults
  • Protections under “grandfathered plans”
