Anti-discrimination Rules

Anti-discrimination restrictions were developed as a means of leveling the playing field across individuals on grounds they should not be disadvantaged in the market for insurance due to factors generally beyond their control. The Duke Center for Health Policy has developed a draft working paper assessing the costs and benefits of anti-discrimination restrictions, including the topics listed below(pdf):

  • Rehabilitation Act of 1973
  • Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1978
  • Americans with Disabilities Act
  • Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act
