Updated HRSA-Supported Women's Preventive Services Guidelines: Contraception and Screening for HIV Infection
Document Number: 2021-23498
Type: Notice
Date: 2021-10-28
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration
This notice seeks comments on two updated draft recommendations for (1) providing contraception and (2) screening for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, as part of the HRSA- supported Women's Preventive Services Guidelines (Guidelines). These updated draft recommendations have been developed through a national cooperative agreement, the Women's Preventive Services Initiative (WPSI), by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG). Under applicable law, non-grandfathered group health plans and health insurance issuers offering non-grandfathered group and individual health insurance coverage must include coverage, without cost sharing, for certain preventive services, including those provided for in the HRSA-supported Women's Preventive Services Guidelines (Guidelines). The Departments of Labor (DOL), Health and Human Services (HHS), and the Treasury have previously issued regulations, which describe how group health plans and health insurance issuers apply the coverage requirements, including the use of reasonable medical management. (See 26 CFR 54.9815-2713, 29 CFR 2590.715-2713, and 45 CFR 147.130).

Final Policy: Updates to Uniform Standard for Waiver of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Core Medical Services Expenditure Requirement
Document Number: 2021-21241
Type: Notice
Date: 2021-10-01
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration
The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) statute of the Public Health Services Act requires that RWHAP Part A, B, and C recipients expend not less than 75 percent of Parts A, B, and C grant funds on core medical services for individuals with HIV/AIDS identified and eligible under the statute, after reserving statutory permissible amounts for administrative and clinical quality management (CQM) costs. The statute also grants the Secretary of HHS authority to waive this requirement if certain requirements are met. HRSA has simplified the process for RWHAP Part A, B, and C recipients to request a waiver of the core medical services expenditure amount requirement by replacing HRSA Policy Number 13-07, ``Uniform Standard for Waiver of Core Medical Services Requirement for Grantees Under Parts, A, B, and C'' with Policy Notice 21-01, ``Waiver of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Core Medical Services Expenditure Requirement.''
