MedStar Health has entered into an agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) to resolve an investigation brought under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). This resolves alleged ADA violations involving the failure to make certain exceptions to MedStar Health’s visitor restrictions related to COVID-19. DOJ alleges that MedStar Health did not allow the presence of a support person (such as a family member, companion, or aide) to accompany individuals with certain disabilities who could not equally access MedStar Health’s care without that support. MedStar Health denies these violations but has agreed to resolve this matter with the DOJ. If you are an individual who is entitled to be paid under this agreement, you will receive written notification and instructions from MedStar Health’s third party Settlement Administrator.
