I was wondering if someone could possibly help me figure out if there are any state or federal regulations regarding how closely the reading levels of the source and target documents should be for health care and health insurance. (i.e. if the translation is a lower or higher reading level than the source)
I know there are lots of regulations for this field and I've been reading a lot, but I can't find anything on this. I'm not quite sure if that means I just haven't found it, or if that means it doesn't exist.
Thank you for your help!

Health Literacy Level
May 20, 2016
According to the following guidelines, use plain language for medical or healthcare materials at a reading level of 7th or 8th grade.
"Keep within a range of about a 7th or 8th grade reading level."
"Health literacy is basic reading and numerical skills that allow a person to function in the health care environment. Even though most adults read at an eighth-grade level, and 20 percent of the population reads at or below a fifth-grade level, most health care materials are written at a 10th-grade level." http://www.aafp.org/afp/2005/0801/p463.html
