This article will discuss the federal requirements and impact on the cost and utilization of health care services among patients with limited English proficiency (LEP)?
Many studies have been conducted regarding overcoming the language barriers in health care and its related costs and benefits of interpreter services.
More than 62 million people is the United States do not speak English as their primary language and people who have LEP are less likely to have a regular source of primary care.
It has been proven that the change in delivery and cost of care provided to patients in a health maintenance organization received significantly more recommended preventative services, made more office visits, and had more prescriptions written and filled. Although the costs of providing interpreter services have changed over the years, the average cost to provide medical interpreter services per patient per year has been $279.
There are federal requirements related to providing interpreter services for non-English–speaking patients in outpatient practice. Antidiscrimination provisions in federal law require health programs and clinicians receiving federal financial assistance to take reasonable steps to provide meaningful access to individuals with limited English proficiency who are eligible for or likely to be encountered in their health programs or activities. Federal financial assistance includes grants, contracts, loans, tax credits and subsidies, as well as payments through Medicaid, the Children’s Health Insurance Program, and most Medicare programs.
