Methodology for Designation of Frontier and Remote Areas
Document Number: 2012-26938
Type: Notice
Date: 2012-11-05
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration
This notice announces a request for public comment on a methodology derived from the Frontier and Remote (FAR) system for designating U.S. frontier areas. This methodology was developed in a collaborative project between the Office of Rural Health Policy (ORHP) in the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA); and the Economic Research Service (ERS) in the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). While other agencies of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the ERS may in the future choose to use the FAR methodology to demarcate the frontier areas of the U.S., there is no requirement that they do so, and they may choose other, alternate methodologies and definitions that best suit their program requirements.

Notice of Intent To Make Changes in the State Title V Maternal and Child Health Block Grant Allocations
Document Number: 2012-26579
Type: Notice
Date: 2012-10-30
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration
The Health Resources and Services Administration's (HRSA) Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) plans to move forward in implementing annual changes to the State Title V MCH Block Grant allocations, beginning in Federal Fiscal Year (FY) 2013, using the U.S. Census Bureau's 3-year American Community Survey (ACS) poverty estimates. Title V MCH Block Grant funds are currently allocated to states based in part on a calculation of the number of children living in poverty (in an individual state) as compared to the total number of children living in poverty in the United States. Historically, data for the number of children in poverty in each state came from the Decennial Census. As the Census Bureau has replaced the Decennial Census long- form sample questionnaire with the ACS, MCHB plans to use the ACS as its source for this data. In order to maintain balance between precision and currency, annual changes to the State Title V MCH Block Grant allocations will be based on a rolling average of the 3-year ACS poverty estimates. Yearly changes in the MCH Block Grant allocations for individual states will be buffered by the use of shared data for two of the three data years in the rolling period estimate. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the ACS is the best source of survey-based state-level income and poverty estimates. Moreover, ACS child poverty estimates are produced annually, and their use will allow the Block Grant allocation proportions to be updated more frequently than every 10 years.

L. 104-13), the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) publishes periodic summaries of proposed projects being developed for submission to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995.

Information Collection Request Title: Drug Pricing Program Reporting Requirements (OMB No. 0915-0176)[Extension] Abstract: Section 602 of Public Law 102-585, the Veterans Health Care Act of 1992, enacted section 340B of the Public Health Service Act (PHS Act), ``Limitation on Prices of Drugs Purchased by Covered Entities.'' Section 340B provides that a manufacturer who participates in Medicaid must sign a Pharmaceutical Pricing Agreement with the Secretary of Health and Human Services in which the manufacturer agrees to charge enrolled covered entities a price for covered outpatient drugs that will not exceed an amount determined under a statutory formula. Covered entities which choose to participate in the section 340B Drug Pricing Program must comply with the requirements of 340B(a)(5) of the PHS Act. Section 340B(a)(5)(A) prohibits a covered entity from accepting a discount for a drug that would also generate a Medicaid rebate. Further, section 340B(a)(5)(B) prohibits a covered entity from reselling or otherwise transferring a discounted drug to a person who is not a patient of the entity. In response to the statutory mandate of section 340B(a)(5)(C) to permit the Secretary or manufacturers to conduct audits of covered entities and because of the potential for disputes involving covered entities and participating drug manufacturers, the HRSA Office of Pharmacy Affairs (OPA) developed a dispute resolution process for manufacturers and covered entities, as well as manufacturer guidelines for audit of covered entities (Federal Register Final Notice, December 12, 1996 (Vol. 61, No. 240, pp. 65406-65413)). 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 Information Collection Request are summarized in the table below. The annual estimate of burden is as follows:

HRSA believes that community input is valuable to the development of policies and policy documents related to the implementation of HRSA programs, including the Health Center Program. Therefore, we are requesting comments on the PIN referenced above. Comments will be reviewed and analyzed, and a final PIN, along with a summary and general response to the comments, will be published as soon as possible after the deadline for receipt of comments. Background: HRSA provides grants to eligible health centers under Section 330 of the Public Health Service Act (PHS Act) to support the delivery of preventive and primary care services to medically- underserved communities and vulnerable populations. In 2011, grants helped fund approximately 1,200 health center grantees, which provided services at more than 8,500 health care delivery sites and served more than 20.2 million people. There are also approximately 100 FQHC Look- Alikes. As described in section 1861(aa)(4) and section 1905(l)(2)(B) of the Social Security Act, FQHC Look-Alikes do not receive Federal funding under Section 330 of the PHS Act. However, in order to receive the FQHC Look-Alike designation and benefits, FQHC Look-Alikes must meet the statutory, regulatory, and policy requirements for Health Centers Programs under Section 330. A key requirement of the Health Center Program is for a health center to establish a ``sliding fee discount program'' that includes a schedule of discounts for services, or ``sliding fee discount schedule,'' that ensures financial barriers to care are minimized for patients who meet certain eligibility criteria. All Section 330-funded health centers and FQHC Look-Alikes must utilize a sliding fee discount schedule that provides discounts to eligible patients based on their family size and income. The purpose of this PIN is to provide clarification on Health Center Program sliding fee discount program requirements including: (1) A schedule of fees for services; (2) a corresponding schedule of discounts for eligible patients that is adjusted on the basis of the patient's ability to pay (referred to as the sliding fee discount schedule, or SFDS for the purposes of this PIN); and (3) governing board-approved policies and procedures, including those around billing, collections, and waivers or reductions of any fees or payments required by the center for services that support the fee and discount schedules based on an individual's ability to pay. When finalized, this PIN will supersede all other previous Health Center Program guidance and policy issued on this program requirement. However, please note that this policy does not supersede patient billing requirements resulting from a health center's FQHC status under Titles XVIII and XIX of the Social Security Act (the Medicare and Medicaid programs), its implementing regulations, or policies. HRSA's Bureau of Primary Health Care is making this draft PIN available for comment. When providing comments, please be as specific as possible, and reference the section of the PIN and/or page number(s). Comments will be reviewed and analyzed, and a final PIN, along with a summary and general response to comments, will be published as soon as possible after the comment submission deadline. Comments should be submitted to OPPDSFPIN@hrsa.gov by the close of business on September 28, 2012.
