Obama announces pro LGBT health care memo

 The President just announced  a health care memorandum that diirects the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) to promulgate rules for hospitals that receive federal funding to develop visitation policies that take into account LGBT families and to ensure that rules are enforced for respecting the legal documents that patients have about who can make decisions for them in medical emergencies. The President also directed HHS to report back in 180 days with recommendations to address these and other health care issues that affect LGBT patients and their families.

Does anyone have details?
