For over a decade, the Health Equity and Accountability Act (HEAA) has been introduced each Congress by members of the Congressional Black, Hispanic and Asian and Pacific American Caucuses. HEAA serves as a key marker of how health equity advocates in Congress and in policy organizations would comprehensively address disparities. However, HEAA also has been an important source of legislative proposals that have been passed into law. This memo describes provisions of HEAA that were passed into law as part of the Affordable Care Act, the Children’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act.
