Meet ACA Language Requirements

flags and fingertipsWondering about the language access requirements under the Affordable Care Act? The federal Office for Civil Rights has posted Frequently Asked Questions about language access regulations. If you receive federal funding, the law requires your organization to take reasonable steps to provide meaningful access to individuals with limited English proficiency.
                       
The standards specify that you post taglines advising consumers of the availability of free language assistance services in the 15 languages most commonly spoken in the state where you operate. In Minnesota, these languages include Spanish, Hmong, Cushite (languages spoken in the Horn of Africa, including Oromo and Somali), Vietnamese, Chinese, Russian, Laotian, Amharic, Karen, German, Cambodian, Arabic, French, Korean andTagalog.
