Office for Civil Rights (Health and Human Services)
The Office for Civil Rights (OCR) enforces Federal civil rights laws that prohibit discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, and disability (which may include HIV/AIDS). OCR also enforces the Privacy Rule under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), which protects the privacy of health information and gives consumers the right to review and make corrections to their medical records. Persons with HIV/AIDS who believe they have been discriminated against in health care or human services, or believe that their health privacy rights have been violated, may file a complaint with OCR.
