Start Preamble

Description: The Administration for Children and Families' Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) places unaccompanied minors in their custody in licensed care provider facilities until reunification with a qualified sponsor. Care provider facilities are required to provide children with services such as classroom education, mental health services, and health care. Pursuant to Exhibit 1, part A.2 of the Flores Settlement Agreement (Jenny Lisette Flores, et al., v. Janet Reno, Attorney General of the United States, et al., Case No. CV 85-4544-RJK (C.D. Cal. 1996), care provider facilities, on behalf of ORR, shall arrange for appropriate routine medical and dental care, family planning services, and emergency health care services, including a complete medical examination (including screening for infectious disease) within 48 hours of admission, excluding weekends and holidays, unless the minor was recently examined at another facility; appropriate immunizations in accordance with the U.S. Public Health Service (PHS), Center for Disease Control; administration of prescribed medication and special diets; appropriate mental health interventions when necessary for each minor in their care.

The forms are to be used as worksheets for healthcare providers and health departments to compile information that would otherwise have been collected during a medical evaluation. Once completed, the forms will be given to care provider program staff for data entry into ORR's electronic data repository known as `The UAC Portal'. Data will be used to record UC health conditions/illnesses and for case management of any identified illnesses/conditions.

Respondents: Office of Refugee Resettlement Grantee staff.
