Non-discrimination Policy

It is the policy of OrthoDakota not to discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability. OrthoDakota has adopted an internal grievance procedure providing for prompt and equitable resolution of complaints alleging any action prohibited by Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act (42 U.S.C. § 18116) and its implementing regulations at 45 C.F.R. pt. 92, issued by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Section 1557 prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability in certain health programs and activities. Any person who believes someone has been subjected to discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability may file a grievance under this procedure. It is against the law for OrthoDakota to retaliate against anyone who opposes discrimination, files a grievance, or participates in the investigation of a grievance. OrthoDakota complies with applicable Federal civil rights laws and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, disability, or sex.
