SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Information Collection Request Title: Chart Abstraction of Ryan White HIV/ AIDS Program Recipient Data, OMB No. 0906–xxxx—New. Abstract: HRSA’s Ryan White HIV/ AIDS Program (RWHAP) funds and coordinates with cities, states, and local clinics/community-based organizations to deliver efficient and effective HIV care, treatment, and support to lowincome people with HIV. Nearly twothirds of clients (patients) live at or below 100 percent of the Federal poverty level and approximately threequarters of RWHAP clients are racial and ethnic minorities. Since 1990, the RWHAP has developed a comprehensive system of HIV service providers who deliver high quality direct health care and support services to over half a million people with HIV— more than 50 percent of all people with diagnosed HIV in the United States.

The purpose of the Chart Abstraction of RWHAP Data study is to assess the extent to which the care provided with funding from the RWHAP is meeting the HHS and USPSTF guidelines. The study will collect data from RWHAP service providers via a provider screening phone interview, a provider pre-site visit interview, and medical records data abstraction. The data will reflect the full range of HIV outpatient ambulatory health services, primary care, and screening and treatment for hepatitis, sexually transmitted infections (STIs), and opioid use disorder provided by service providers and allow HRSA to assess the extent to which care provided by RWHAP service providers meets the HHS and USPSTF guidelines.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:41 Nov 15, 2019 Jkt 250001 HRSA is publishing an updated monetary amount of the average cost of a health insurance policy as it relates to the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP). SUMMARY: Section 100.2 of VICP’s implementing regulation (42 CFR part 100) states that the revised amount of an average cost of a health insurance policy, as determined by the Secretary of HHS (the Secretary), is effective upon its delivery by the Secretary to the United States Court of Federal Claims (the Court), and will be published periodically in a notice in the Federal Register. The Secretary delegated this responsibility to the HRSA Administrator. This figure is calculated using the most recent Medical Expenditure Panel SurveyInsurance Component (MEPS–IC) data available as the baseline for the average monthly cost of a health insurance policy. This baseline is adjusted by the annual percentage increase/decrease obtained from the most recent annual Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) Employer Health Benefits Survey or other authoritative source that may be more accurate or appropriate. In 2019, MEPS–IC, available at www.meps.ahrq.gov, published the annual 2018 average total single SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00061 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 premium per enrolled employee at private-sector establishments that provide health insurance. The figure published was $6,715. This figure is divided by 12 months to determine the cost per month of $559.58. The $559.58 figure is increased or decreased by the percentage change reported by the most recent KFF Employer Health Benefits Survey, available at www.kff.org. The percentage increase from 2018 to 2019 was 4.0 percent. By adding this percentage increase, the calculated average monthly cost of a health insurance policy for a 12-month period is $581.96. Therefore, the Secretary announces that the revised average cost of a health insurance policy under the VICP is $581.96 per month. In accordance with § 100.2, the revised amount was effective upon its delivery by the Secretary to the Court. Such notice was delivered to the Court on November 7, 2019. Dated: November 7, 2019.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Information Collection Request Title: Chart Abstraction of Ryan 
White HIV/AIDS Program Recipient Data, OMB No. 0906-xxxx--New.
    Abstract: HRSA's Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) funds and 
coordinates with cities, states, and local clinics/community-based 
organizations to deliver efficient and effective HIV care, treatment, 
and support to low-income people with HIV. Nearly two-thirds of clients 
(patients) live at or below 100 percent of the Federal poverty level 
and approximately three-quarters of RWHAP clients are racial and ethnic 
minorities. Since 1990, the RWHAP has developed a comprehensive system 
of HIV service providers who deliver high quality direct health care 
and support services to over half a million people with HIV--more than 
50 percent of all people with diagnosed HIV in the United States.
    HRSA is required to assess the quality of care provided by RWHAP 
grant recipients. HHS guidelines (e.g., Guidelines for the Use of 
Antiretroviral Agents in Adults and Adolescents Living with HIV; 
Guidelines for the Prevention and Treatment of Opportunistic Infections 
in HIV- Infected Adults and Adolescents; and Sexually Transmitted 
Diseases Treatment Guidelines, 2015) and U.S. Preventative Services 
Task Force (USPSTF) guidelines serve as the basis for assessing the 
quality of care within the RWHAP. The purpose of the Chart Abstraction 
of RWHAP Data study is to assess the extent to which the care provided 
with funding from the RWHAP is meeting the HHS and USPSTF guidelines. 
The study will collect data from RWHAP service providers via a provider 
screening phone interview, a provider pre-site visit interview, and 
medical records data abstraction. The data will reflect the full range 
of HIV outpatient ambulatory health services, primary care, and 
screening and treatment for hepatitis, sexually transmitted infections 
(STIs), and opioid use disorder provided by service providers and allow 
HRSA to assess the extent to which care provided by RWHAP service 
providers meets the HHS and USPSTF guidelines.

    Need and Proposed Use of the Information: National RWHAP client-
level data is collected through the RWHAP Client Level Data Reporting 
System. The RWHAP Client Level Data Reporting System dataset (OMB 
control number 0915-0323) is HRSA's primary source of annual, client-
level data collected from its nearly 2,000 funded grant recipients/
service providers and the data have been used to assess the numbers and 
types of clients receiving services and limited HIV outcomes. However, 
the RWHAP Client Level Data Reporting System dataset does not include 
relevant data in order to fully assess the extent to which the care 
provided by RWHAP service providers is meeting the HHS and USPSTF 
guidelines. This proposed new information collection request will 
provide the full range of HIV outpatient ambulatory health services, 
primary care, and screening and treatment for hepatitis, STIs, and 
opioid use disorder data and allow HRSA to assess the extent to which 
care provided by RWHAP service providers meets the HHS and USPSTF 
guidelines.
    Likely Respondents: HRSA RWHAP Part A, Part B, Part C, and Part D 
service providers funded to deliver outpatient ambulatory health 
services to eligible clients.
    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 information. The total annual burden hours estimated for 
this ICR are summarized in the table below.
    The burden estimate increased by 25 hours (0.5 hour increase for 
each medical record data abstraction) to a total of 225 hours (previous 
estimate was 200 hours as published in the 60-day notice on May 10, 
2019 in Vol. 84, No. 91, pages 20638-20639). The burden estimate 
increased as the result of a pilot of the data collection forms.
