The Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008 (GINA) was signed into law on May 21, 2008. GINA prohibits discrimination in health care coverage (as well as employment) based on genetic information.
GINA expands the genetic information protections included in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA). HIPAA prevents a plan or issuer from imposing a pre-existing condition exclusion provision based solely on genetic information, and prohibits discrimination in individual eligibility, benefits, or premiums based on any health factor (including genetic information).
