National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program; List of Petitions Received, 28864-28866 [2017-13314]

Download as PDF 28864 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 121 / Monday, June 26, 2017 / Notices sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES Secretary annually publish lists of the designated geographic areas, population groups, and facilities. The lists of HPSAs are to be reviewed at least annually and revised as necessary. Final regulations (42 CFR part 5) were published in 1980 that include the criteria for designating HPSAs. Criteria were defined for seven health professional types: Primary medical care, dental, psychiatric, vision care, podiatric, pharmacy, and veterinary care. The criteria for correctional facility HPSAs were revised and published on March 2, 1989 (54 FR 8735). The criteria for psychiatric HPSAs were expanded to mental health HPSAs on January 22, 1992 (57 FR 2473). Currently-funded PHS Act programs use only the primary medical care, mental health, or dental HPSA designations. HPSA designation offers access to potential federal assistance. Public or private nonprofit entities are eligible to apply for assignment of National Health Service Corps (NHSC) personnel to provide primary medical care, mental health, or dental health services in or to these HPSAs. NHSC health professionals enter into service agreements to serve in federallydesignated HPSAs. Entities with clinical training sites located in HPSAs are eligible to receive priority for certain residency training program grants administered by HRSA’s Bureau of Health Workforce (BHW). Other federal programs also utilize HPSA designations. For example, under authorities administered by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, certain qualified providers in geographic area HPSAs are eligible for increased levels of Medicare reimbursement. Content and Format of Lists The three lists of designated HPSAs are available on the HPSAFind Web site and include a snapshot of all geographic areas, population groups, and facilities that were designated HPSAs as of May 1, 2017. This notice incorporates the most recent annual reviews of designated HPSAs and supersedes the HPSA lists published in the Federal Register on July 1, 2016 (81 FR 43214). In addition, all Indian Tribes that meet the definition of such Tribes in the Indian Health Care Improvement Act of 1976, 25 U.S.C. 1603(d), are automatically designated as population groups with primary medical care and dental health professional shortages. Further, the Health Care Safety Net Amendments of 2002 provides eligibility for automatic facility HPSA designations for all federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) and rural health VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:04 Jun 23, 2017 Jkt 241001 clinics that offer services regardless of ability to pay. Specifically, these entities include FQHCs funded under section 330 of the PHS Act, FQHC Look-Alikes, and Tribal and urban Indian clinics operating under the Indian SelfDetermination and Education Act of 1975 (25 U.S.C. 450) or the Indian Health Care Improvement Act. Many, but not all, of these entities are included on this listing. Absence from this list does not exclude them from HPSA designation; facilities eligible for automatic designation are included in the database when they are identified. Each list of designated HPSAs is arranged by state. Within each state, a list is presented by county. If only a portion (or portions) of a county is (are) designated, a county is part of a larger designated service area, or a population group residing in a county or a facility located in a county has been designated, the name of the service area, population group, or facility involved is listed under the county name. A county that has a whole county geographic HPSA is indicated by the phrase ‘‘Entire county HPSA’’ following the county name. Development of the Designation and Withdrawal Lists Requests for designation or withdrawal of a particular geographic area, population group, or a facility as a HPSA are received continuously by BHW. Under a Cooperative Agreement between HRSA and the 54 state and territorial Primary Care Offices (PCOs), PCOs conduct needs assessments and submit the majority of the applications to HRSA to designate areas as HPSAs. Requests that come from other sources are referred by BHW to PCOs for review. In addition, interested parties, including Governors, state Primary Care Associations, and state professional associations, are notified of requests so that they may submit comments and recommendations. BHW reviews each recommendation for possible addition, continuation, revision, or withdrawal. Following review, BHW notifies the appropriate agency, individuals, and interested organizations of each designation of a HPSA, rejection of recommendation for HPSA designation, revision of a HPSA designation, and/or advance notice of pending withdrawal from the HPSA list. Designations (or revisions of designations) are effective as of the date on the notification from BHW and are updated daily on the HPSAFind Web site. The effective date of a withdrawal will be the next publication of a notice regarding the lists in the Federal Register. PO 00000 Frm 00051 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Dated: June 16, 2017.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: HRSA is publishing this notice of petitions received under the 
National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (the program), as required 
by the Public Health Service (PHS) Act, as amended. While the Secretary 
of HHS is named as the respondent in all proceedings brought by the 
filing of petitions for compensation under the program, the United 
States Court of Federal Claims is charged by statute with 
responsibility for considering and acting upon the petitions.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For information about requirements for 
filing petitions, and the program in general, contact Lisa L. Reyes, 
Acting Clerk, United States Court of Federal Claims, 717 Madison Place 
NW., Washington, DC 20005, (202) 357-6400. For information on HRSA's 
role in the program, contact the Director, National Vaccine Injury

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The program provides a system of no-fault 
compensation for certain individuals who have been injured by specified 
childhood vaccines. Subtitle 2 of Title XXI of the PHS Act, 42 U.S.C. 
300aa-10 et seq., provides that those seeking compensation are to file 
a petition with the U.S. Court of Federal Claims and to serve a copy of 
the petition on the Secretary of HHS, who is named as the respondent in 
each proceeding. The Secretary has delegated this responsibility under 
the program to HRSA. The Court is directed by statute to appoint 
special masters who take evidence, conduct hearings as appropriate, and 
make initial decisions as to eligibility for, and amount of, 
compensation.

[[Page 28865]]

    A petition may be filed with respect to injuries, disabilities, 
illnesses, conditions, and deaths resulting from vaccines described in 
the Vaccine Injury Table (the Table) set forth at 42 CFR 100.3. This 
Table lists for each covered childhood vaccine the conditions that may 
lead to compensation and, for each condition, the time period for 
occurrence of the first symptom or manifestation of onset or of 
significant aggravation after vaccine administration. Compensation may 
also be awarded for conditions not listed in the Table and for 
conditions that are manifested outside the time periods specified in 
the Table, but only if the petitioner shows that the condition was 
caused by one of the listed vaccines.
    Section 2112(b)(2) of the PHS Act, 42 U.S.C. 300aa-12(b)(2), 
requires that ``[w]ithin 30 days after the Secretary receives service 
of any petition filed under section 2111 the Secretary shall publish 
notice of such petition in the Federal Register.'' Set forth below is a 
list of petitions received by HRSA on May 1, 2017, through May 31, 
2017. This list provides the name of petitioner, city and state of 
vaccination (if unknown then city and state of person or attorney 
filing claim), and case number. In cases where the Court has redacted 
the name of a petitioner and/or the case number, the list reflects such 
redaction.
    Section 2112(b)(2) also provides that the special master ``shall 
afford all interested persons an opportunity to submit relevant, 
written information'' relating to the following:
    1. The existence of evidence ``that there is not a preponderance of 
the evidence that the illness, disability, injury, condition, or death 
described in the petition is due to factors unrelated to the 
administration of the vaccine described in the petition,'' and
    2. Any allegation in a petition that the petitioner either:
    a. ``[S]ustained, or had significantly aggravated, any illness, 
disability, injury, or condition not set forth in the Vaccine Injury 
Table but which was caused by'' one of the vaccines referred to in the 
Table, or
    b. ``[S]ustained, or had significantly aggravated, any illness, 
disability, injury, or condition set forth in the Vaccine Injury Table
