The Access Project and the National Health Law Program have developed a Language Services Action Kit for advocates and others working to ensure that people with limited English proficiency in their state get appropriate language assistance services in medical settings. In this toolkit, the authors explain the federal laws and policies that require health care providers to ensure access to services for people with limited English proficiency, and how states pay for Medicaid and SCHIP services. The toolkit also discusses how states can get federal funding to help pay for language services, such as interpretation, for program enrollees. The authors describe models that some states have adopted to reimburse health care providers for language services, and provide information and describe techniques for demonstrating the need for language services in advocacy campaigns. A list of resources for additional information about language services; and suggestions for getting advocacy efforts started are also included. (Authors)
