A Michigan Doctor Sues Health System Over Required Age-Based Cognitive Assessment

A Henry Ford Health ophthalmologist in Grosse Pointe Park is suing the health system for age discrimination because it requires a cognition assessment for those 70 years of age and older, according to the lawsuit.

The lawsuit was filed in September by Dr. Lylas Mogk against Henry Ford Health and Henry Ford Medical Group. It is pursuant to the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1991, Title II of the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008 and Michigan’s Elliot-Larsen Civil Rights Act and Persons with Disabilities Civil Rights Act.

Mogk, 84, has worked for Henry Ford Health since Jan. 1, 1995, and is the founder and immediate past director of the Henry Ford Center for Vision Rehabilitation and Research.
