HEALTH CARE LEGISLATION UPDATES

H.R. 398: Trafficking Awareness Training for Health Care Act of 2015

This bill, written by sponsor Renee Ellmers, passed House in January, and is up for discussion in Senate.  It has 73% chance of being enacted. This act plans to develop evidence-based care training for healthcare providers to recognize signs of human trafficking and intervene on the patient’s behalf. Practices include corresponding with law enforcement, social workers, and anti-human trafficking professionals, identifying risk factors and indicators of a severe form of trafficking, and providing information about patient safety under HIPAA, hotlines, and social services.
