American Disability Act Website Accessibility Under Title II of the ADA
Our company and Websites recognize and provide qualified individuals with disabilities equal access to their programs, services, or activities unless doing so would fundamentally alter the nature of their programs, services, or activities or would impose an undue burden. One way to help meet these requirements is to ensure that our websites have accessible features for people with disabilities, using the simple steps described in this document. Our organization also meet its legal obligations by providing an alternative accessible way for citizens to use the programs or services, such as a staffed telephone information line during business hours.
Please note that when listed herein as “our company” or “we,” “us,” or “our” refers to Chiropractic Works.
A Few Basic Terms
To understand the basics of website accessibility, you need to know a few terms:
Webpage – an Internet-based document, usually in HTML format, that can contain a wide variety of information and multimedia content.
Website – a collection of web pages that are hierarchically organized around a homepage.
Web browser – a computer program that downloads web pages. It is the program installed on the computer that you use to access web pages on the Internet.
HTML – short for “hypertext mark-up language,” a common markup language used to present web pages. It tells the web browser how information should be structured and accessed.
Screen reader – a computer program that speaks written text. It allows a person to listen to the written text on a webpage or in a computer program. Screen readers read-only text; they cannot describe pictures or other images, even if the images are pictures of text.
HTML tags – specific instructions understood by a web browser or screen reader. One type of HTML tag called an “alt” tag (short for “alternative text”), is used to provide brief text descriptions of images that screen readers can understand and speak. Another type of HTML tag called a “longdesc” tag (short for “long description”), is used to provide long text descriptions that can be spoken by screen readers.
Refreshable Braille display – an electronic device that translates standard text into Braille characters and uses devices such as rounded pins on a refreshable display to create Braille text that can be read by touch.
Images With Text Equivalents
Blind people, those with low vision, and people with other disabilities that affect their ability to read a computer display often use different technologies, so they can access the information displayed on a webpage. Two commonly used technologies are screen readers and refreshable Braille displays. As discussed above, a screen reader is a computer program that speaks the text that appears on the computer display, beginning in the top-left corner. A refreshable Braille display is an electronic device that translates text into Braille characters that can be read by touch. These assistive technologies read text. They cannot translate images into speech or Braille, even if words appear in the images. For example, these technologies cannot interpret a photograph of a stop sign, even if the word “stop” appears in the image.
Because they only read the text, screen readers and refreshable Braille displays cannot interpret photographs, charts, color-coded information, or other graphic elements on a webpage. Our company utilizes a line of simple HTML code to provide text for each image and graphic will enable the user with a vision disability to understand what it is.
Our company utilizes the words in the tag can be more than a description. It often provides a text equivalent of the image. In other words, the tag often includes the same meaningful information that other users obtain by looking at the image. In some circumstances, longer and more detailed text is necessary to convey the same meaningful information that other visitors to the website can see.
Specifying Colors and Font Sizes
Although webpage designers often have aesthetic preferences and may want everyone to see their web pages in precisely the same color, size, and layout. But because of their disability, many people with low vision do not see web pages the same as other people. Some see only small portions of a computer display at one time, and others cannot see text or images that are too small or with certain colors. For these reasons, many people with low vision use specific color and font settings when they access the Internet – settings that are often very different from those most people use. For example, many people with low vision need to use high contrast settings, such as bold white or yellow letters on a black background. Others require just the opposite – bold black text on a white or yellow background. And, many must use softer, more subtle color combinations.
Our company enables the user to manipulate color and font settings in their web browsers and operating systems to make pages readable. Some web pages, however, are designed so that changing the color and font settings is impossible.
Our company utilizes websites that are designed so they can be viewed with the color and font sizes set in users’ web browsers and operating systems. Users with low vision can specify the text and background colors as well as the font sizes needed to see webpage content.
Videos and Other Multimedia Lack Accessible Features
Due to increasing bandwidth and connection speeds, videos and other multimedia are becoming more common on the websites. These and other types of multimedia can present two distinct problems for people with different disabilities. People who are deaf or hard of hearing can generally see the information displayed on Web pages. But a deaf person or someone who is hard of hearing may not be able to hear the audio track of a video. On the other hand, persons who are blind or have low vision are frequently unable to see the video images but can hear the audio track.
Our company utilizes multimedia options to incorporate features that make them accessible to everyone. Provide audio descriptions of images (including changes in setting, gestures, and other details) to make videos available to people who are blind or have low vision. Our company provides text captions synchronized with the video images to make videos and audio tracks accessible to people who are deaf or hard of hearing.
Our company’s Website Functionality:
- include a “skip navigation” link at the top of web pages that allows people who use screen readers to ignore navigation links and skip directly to webpage content;
- minimize blinking, flashing, or other distracting features;
- if they must be included, ensure that moving, blinking, or auto-updating objects or pages may be paused or stopped;
- design online forms to include descriptive HTML tags that provide persons with disabilities the information they need to complete and submit the forms;
- include visual notification and transcripts if sounds automatically play;
- provide a second, static copy of pages that are auto-refreshing or that require a timed-response;
- use titles, context, and other heading structures to help users navigate complex pages or elements (such as web pages that use frames).
We may modify or amend this ADA Notice from time to time at our discretion. It is your responsibility to review this page as often you deem necessary to see updates, and you acknowledge by using our service that you accept that responsibility to regularly check for changes. We encourage you to periodically review this ADA Notice to be informed.
Your Rights and Protections Against Surprise Medical Bills
When you get emergency care or get treated by an out-of-network provider at an in-network hospital or ambulatory surgical center, you are protected from surprise billing or balance billing.
What is “balance billing” (sometimes called “surprise billing”)?
When you see a doctor or other health care provider, you may owe certain out-of-pocket costs, such as a copayment, coinsurance, and/or a deductible. You may have other costs or have to pay the entire bill if you see a provider or visit a health care facility that isn’t in your health plan’s network.
“Out-of-network” describes providers and facilities that haven’t signed a contract with your health plan. Out-of-network providers may be permitted to bill you for the difference between what your plan agreed to pay and the full amount charged for a service. This is called “balance billing.” This amount is likely more than in-network costs for the same service and might not count toward your annual out-of-pocket limit.
“Surprise billing” is an unexpected balance bill. This can happen when you can’t control who is involved in your care—like when you have an emergency or when you schedule a visit at an in-network facility but are unexpectedly treated by an out-of-network provider.
You are protected from balance billing for:
If you have an emergency medical condition and get emergency services from an out-of-network provider or facility, the most the provider or facility may bill you is your plan’s in-network cost-sharing amount (such as copayments and coinsurance). You can’t be balance billed for these emergency services. This includes services you may get after you’re in stable condition, unless you give written consent and give up your protections not to be balanced billed for these post-stabilization services.
Certain services at an in-network hospital or ambulatory surgical center
When you get services from an in-network hospital or ambulatory surgical center, certain providers there may be out-of-network. In these cases, the most those providers may bill you is your plan’s in-network cost-sharing amount. This applies to emergency medicine, anesthesia, pathology, radiology, laboratory, neonatology, assistant surgeon, hospitalist, or intensivist services. These providers can’t balance bill you and may not ask you to give up your protections not to be balance billed.
If you get other services at these in-network facilities, out-of-network providers can’t balance bill you, unless you give written consent and give up your protections.
You’re never required to give up your protections from balance billing. You also aren’t required to get care out-of-network. You can choose a provider or facility in your plan’s network.
When balance billing isn’t allowed, you also have the following protections:
- You are only responsible for paying your share of the cost (like the copayments, coinsurance, and deductibles that you would pay if the provider or facility was in-network). Your health plan will pay out-of-network providers and facilities directly.
- Your health plan generally must:
- Cover emergency services without requiring you to get approval for services in advance (prior authorization).
- Cover emergency services by out-of-network providers.
- Base what you owe the provider or facility (cost-sharing) on what it would pay an in‑network provider or facility and show that amount in your explanation of benefits.
- Count any amount you pay for emergency services or out-of-network services toward your deductible and out-of-pocket limit.
