Two Policy Updates from HRSA HAB: PCN 15-02 and 18-02

Friday, November 30, 2018


From HRSA's HIV/AIDS Bureau
HIV/AIDS Bureau Colleagues:

Today [November 29] the Health Resources and Services Administration’s HIV/AIDS Bureau (HRSA HAB) updated and replaced two Policy Clarification Notices (PCN).

  1. PCN# 15-02, Clinical Quality Management (updated)
  2. PCN #18-02, The Use of Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Funds for Core Medical Services and Support Services for People Living with HIV Who Are Incarcerated and Justice Involved (replaces PCN #07-04)

PCN #15-02, Clinical Quality Management, revises the number of performance measures a recipient must have for each funded service category based on the number of clients served in a category to reduce burden for recipients.

PCN #18-02 replaces PCN #07-04, "The Use of Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Funds for Transitional Social Support and Primary Care Services for Incarcerated Persons." This PCN provides guidance on the use of program funds to provide core medical services and support services on a transitional basis to people living with HIV (PLWH) who are incarcerated in Federal and State prison systems.

It also clarifies that recipients can use RWHAP funds for core medical services and support services on a short-term and/or transitional basis to PLWH who are incarcerated in certain correctional systems (e.g., local prisons or jails) or under community supervision (e.g., parole or home detention).  

Access these PCNs, as well as other Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program policy notices and program letters

Thank you,
Laura Cheever and Heather Hauck
Associate Administrator and Deputy Associate Administrator
