Opportunity for Comments on Proposed Updates to the Bright Futures Periodicity Schedule as Part of the HRSA-Supported Preventive Services Guidelines for Infants, Children, and Adolescents
Document Number: 2021-19630
Type: Notice
Date: 2021-09-13
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration
This notice seeks public comment on several proposed updates to The Periodicity Schedule of the Bright Futures Recommendations for Pediatric Preventive Health Care (``Bright Futures Periodicity Schedule''), as part of the HRSA-supported preventive service guidelines for infants, children, and adolescents. Please see https:// mchb.hrsa.gov/maternal-child-health-topics/child-health/brigh t- futures.html for additional information. The Periodicity Schedule is maintained in part through a national cooperative agreement, the Bright Futures Pediatric Implementation Program. If accepted by HRSA, a proposed update to the Bright Futures Periodicity Schedule will provide additional clinical guidance to providers and, under the Public Health Service Act, would require certain insurance plans and issuers to provide coverage without cost-sharing of such updated preventive care and screenings.
