What is a Language Access Plan?
A Language Access Plan is a document that supports a strategic effort to eliminate or reduce Limited English Proficiency (LEP) as a barrier to accessing information.
Any organization that serves a population with Limited English Proficiency should have a Language Access Plan in place.
This guide is designed to help you:
- Define your Language Access Policy
- Establish a Language Access Team
- Understand Language Services Best Practices

The Joint Commission estimates “80% of serious medical errors involve miscommunication between caregivers and patients.”
