BILLING CODE 4165–15–P DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES Health Resources and Services Administration Reimbursement of Travel and Subsistence Expenses Toward Living Organ Donation Eligibility Guidelines Health Resources and Services Administration, HHS. AGENCY: Publication of Change to Program Eligibility Guidelines. ACTION: PO 00000 Frm 00028 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 35143 SUMMARY: This notice finalizes an amendment to the eligibility guidelines proposed on March 5, 2008, in the Federal Register (73 FR 11930). The purpose of this notice was to solicit comments on the amendment to the Program Eligibility Guidelines proposed by HRSA concerning the Reimbursement of Travel and Subsistence Expenses Program. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: James F. Burdick, M.D., Director, Division of Transplantation, Healthcare Systems Bureau, Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), Parklawn Building, Room 12C–06, 5600 Fishers Lane, Rockville, Maryland 20857; telephone (301) 443–7577; fax (301) 594–6095; or e-mail: jburdick@hrsa.gov. In its final program eligibility guidelines, HRSA explained that ‘‘[t]he Program will pay for a total of up to five trips; three for the donor and two for accompanying persons. The accompanying persons need not be the same each trip.’’ HRSA proposes amending this paragraph to read: ‘‘[t]he Program will pay for a total of up to five trips; three for the donor and two for accompanying persons. However, in cases in which the transplant center requests the donor to return to the transplant center for additional visits as a result of donor complications or other health related issues, the National Living Donor Assistance Center (NLDAC) may provide reimbursement for the additional visit(s) for the donor and an accompanying person. The accompanying persons need not be the same in each trip.’’ The purpose of this proposed change is to accommodate individuals who experience donor complications or other health related issues relating to donation. HRSA received one public comment on this request. The respondent endorses HRSA’s proposed amendment because ‘‘it will accommodate individuals who experience donor complications or other health related issues relating to donation’’. HRSA wishes to thank everyone who reviewed this request even if a formal response was not sent to HRSA. HRSA approved the amendment to the Reimbursement of Travel and Subsistence Expenses Program Eligibility Guidelines as published in the Federal Register. The amended eligibility criteria are included in this document. The amended eligibility criteria guidelines document is also available at http:// www.livingdonorassistancecenter.gov.
