What is the program?

The purpose of the Bright Futures Pediatric Implementation (BFPI) cooperative agreement is to improve health outcomes for the nation’s infants, children, and adolescents by increasing the quality of primary and preventive care through the use of age-specific, evidence-driven clinical guidelines. The BFPI Program achieves this goal by spreading use of the Bright Futures Guidelines, which reflect consensus among primary health care experts on the latest, state-of-the-art design for preventive checkups. The Bright Futures Periodicity Schedule has been determined to be part of the evidence-informed preventive care and screenings for infants, children, and adolescents provided for in the HRSA-supported comprehensive guidelines under section 2713(a)(3) of the Public Health Service Act, 42 U.S.C. 300gg-13(a)(3). Under this provision, non-grandfathered group health plans and health insurance issuers must provide coverage of such preventive care and screenings without a co-payment or deductible.
