ACTION: Final notice; response to solicitation of comments and publication of final program eligibility guidelines AGENCY: A notice was published in the Federal Register on March 31, 2020, to solicit comments on the eligibility criteria that were proposed by HRSA concerning the Living Organ Donation Reimbursement Program (formerly Reimbursement of Travel and Subsistence Expenses toward Living SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:01 Sep 21, 2020 Jkt 250001 Organ Donation Program).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Congress has provided specific authority under section 377 of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 274f, for providing reimbursement of qualifying expenses incurred toward living organ donation with preference for those for whom paying such expenses would create a financial hardship. In August 2019, HRSA awarded a 5-year, $16,250,000 cooperative agreement to the University of Kansas Medical Center Research Institute, Inc. to administer this Program. Congress requires that the Secretary in carrying out this Program give preference to those individuals the Secretary determines are more likely to be unable to pay for the qualifying expenses associated with the donation process. In addition, Congress requires that funds from the Program not be used to reimburse qualifying expenses associated with being a living organ donor, if the donor has received any payments or is expected to receive any payments related to these expenses from: (1) Any State compensation program, an insurance policy, or a Federal or State health benefits program; (2) an entity that provides health services on a prepaid basis; or (3) the recipient of the organ. In addition, the authorizing statute requires the Secretary to give preference to living organ donors who are ‘‘more likely to be otherwise unable to meet such expenses.’’ PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Summary of Comments and HRSA Responses On March 31, 2020 (85 FR 17894), HRSA published a notice in the Federal Register requesting comments on the proposed eligibility criteria for the Program. HRSA requested public comment concerning proposed changes to the guidelines to: Increase the household income eligibility threshold to 350 percent of the HHS Poverty Guidelines (from the current threshold of 300 percent) for living organ donors and organ recipients, clarify the use of the existing preference categories in relation to the proposed household income eligibility threshold, and clarify that travel and subsistence expenses incurred by non-directed living organ donors 1 qualify as reimbursable expenses under the Program. HRSA also proposed revision of the Program eligibility guidelines’ background section to ensure that the information aligns with the Program’s legislative authority. These proposed guidelines would apply to the Program regardless of the recipient of the cooperative agreement that administers the Program. HRSA received a total of seventyseven comments from the public. Comments were received from individuals, including prior living donors, and professional and patient stakeholder organizations. None of the commenters opposed HRSA’s efforts to expand eligibility under the Program, although two commenters expressed concern about the effectiveness of the Program, and most commenters expressed interest in further expanding the program. Sixty-eight of the commenters proposed that HRSA increase the income eligibility threshold for the recipient and the donor of the organ beyond the proposed 350 percent of the HHS Poverty Guidelines. HRSA assumes that recipients whose income 1 Living organ donations can be either ‘‘directed’’ (the organ is intended for an individual named or specified by the living organ donor), or ‘‘nondirected’’ (the organ is intended for an individual neither named nor specified by the donor) as defined at https://optn.transplant.hrsa.gov/ resources/ethics/living-non-directed-organdonation/.
