AGENCY:

Health Resources and Services Administration, HHS.

ACTION:

Notice of Class Deviation from Competition Requirements for Rural Health Services Outreach Program (Outreach).

SUMMARY:

The Office of Rural Health Policy (ORHP) will provide program expansion supplemental awards to the current Rural Health Services Outreach Program grantees. The program expansion supplemental funds will allow current Outreach grantees to expand outreach and enrollment activities to the rural uninsured for the next Affordable Care Act's (ACA) Health Insurance Marketplace open enrollment period (November 15, 2014-February 15, 2015). In addition, it will help educate the newly insured about the insurance and benefits they can now access as a result of enrolling during the initial Health Insurance Marketplace open enrollment period. The overarching goals of this supplemental funding are to: (1) Increase the number of uninsured educated about their coverage options; (2) increase the number of uninsured enrolled into the Health Insurance Marketplaces or other available sources of insurance, such as Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program; and (3) increase the number of newly insured individuals educated about the benefits and primary care and preventative services to which they now have access.

Amount of Non-Competitive Awards: $25,000/award

Period of Supplemental Funding: To be used in the current fiscal year (FY) 2014 budget period

CFDA Number: 93.912

Start Authority

Authority: Public Health Service Act, Section 330A (e) (42 U.S.C. 254(c)), as amended.

End Authority

Justification: A greater proportion of rural residents lack health insurance in comparison to urban residents. With millions still uninsured, this supplemental funding will allow current Outreach grantees an opportunity to specifically employ and tailor ACA outreach and enrollment efforts to the uninsured population in rural communities for the upcoming Health Insurance Marketplace open enrollment period (November 15, 2014-February 15, 2015). Additionally, Outreach grantees will be able help educate the newly insured rural Americans about the health insurance coverage and care to which they now have access.
