The Affordable Care Act (ACA) created some strong new protections against discrimination. In this Web Forum, the Center for Health Law and Policy Innovation at Harvard Law School (CHLPI) will cover patients’ protections under the ACA and their right to appeal when eligibility or services are denied. During the Web Forum, we will discuss specific decisions that can be appealed, and will cover the basic appeals process for both eligibility and coverage. We will also cover grounds for eligibility for special enrollment periods and the new auto-enrollment process that will take place this fall. The Web Forum will be tailored to specifically address the concerns of people with diabetes and the common comorbidities, and will also include a section providing guidance for patients on how to choose a health plan that best meets their needs.
