New NYLJ Health Article: "The Genetic Information Non-Discrimination Act of 2009"

Section Member Frank Serbaroli, with the New York office of Greenberg Traurig, writes a regular "Expert Analysis" column for the New York Law Journal. The latest article, "The Genetic Information Non-Discrimination Act of 2009," appears in the November 24, 2009 edition:

In 2008, sweeping new protections were added when Congress enacted and President George W. Bush signed into law the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act,3 or GINA. This complex law aims to prohibit discrimination based upon an individual’s genetic information in health plan coverage and employment. It amends the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA), the Public Health Service Act, the Internal Revenue Code, and the Social Security Act.
