Information Collection Request Title: Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Outcomes within the Context of the Affordable Care Act, OMB No. 0906– xxxx—New. Abstract: The Health Resources and Services Administration’s HIV/AIDS Bureau (HRSA/HAB) implements the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP). This program provides HIVrelated services in the United States for those who do not have sufficient health care coverage or financial resources for coping with HIV disease. Enacted in 2010, the Affordable Care Act has had profound impacts on health care financing and delivery that are continuing to unfold. The expansion of health care coverage impacted many of RWHAP’s traditional clients who are now eligible to receive health care coverage through Medicaid coverage SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00027 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 and qualified health plans available on Health Insurance Marketplaces. These changes have required RWHAP sites to adapt in order to fill different gaps in care experienced by clients across the varying health care coverage options. The purpose of this evaluation study is to determine the effect that Affordable Care Act related health care coverage has had on overall health outcomes, service utilization, and gaps in care for people living with HIV. This evaluation seeks to understand how RWHAP provider sites meet the needs of clients under the variety of health care coverage options clients are encountering across the country. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The expansion of health care coverage now offers new options of obtaining health care services for many individuals with HIV. Due to these changes, additional information concerning overall client health outcomes, pharmaceutical and core medical processes and outcomes, and client access to and utilization of support services is needed. Data from this evaluation study will be used to provide HRSA/HAB with the necessary information to understand the changes in primary health care outcomes of RWHAP clients’ pre- and postimplementation of the Affordable Care Act. This will inform how the RWHAP can best serve clients in the environment of the health care reform. Likely Respondents: RWHAP administrators, RWHAP care providers, and RWHAP clients are the likely respondents. Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide the information requested. This includes the time needed to review instructions; to develop, acquire, install, and utilize technology and systems for the purpose of collecting, validating and verifying information, processing, and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; to train personnel and to be able to respond to a collection of information; to search data sources; to complete and review the collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise disclose the E:\FR\FM\24JNN1.SGM 24JNN1
