RDCC Submits Comments on Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s FY 2022-2026 Draft Strategic Plan

We appreciate the opportunity to provide comments on EEOC’s FY 2022-2026 Draft Strategic Plan and look forward to working together to end the discriminatory practices of employer-sponsored health plans, ensuring that rare disease patients have access to the treatments and therapies they desperately need.

It is vital that EEOC exert its proper authority within its jurisdiction to prevent employers from intentionally or unintentionally discriminating against rare disease patients based on their disabilities and, in so doing, preventing those patients from accessing the transformative treatments that have become available through decades of healthcare innovation.
