The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) granted the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) an extension on February 27, 2020, allowing HHS until August 31, 2020, to establish its guidance portal. This extension request can be found at: https://www.hhs.gov/sites/default/files/eo-13891-extension-request-2-27-20r.pdf.
Consistent with the E.O. and subsequent extension, this document advises the public that HHS has comprehensively reviewed its guidance documents, determined which have continued effect, and is making them available on https://www.hhs.gov/guidance.
This guidance portal includes all active guidance documents from across the HHS's 27 Operating and Staff Divisions. Please note: While many of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services' (CMS) active guidance documents are included here, this does not reflect CMS's full inventory. OMB granted CMS an extension until July 31, 2020, to fully populate the database.
