What is the program?

This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding under the Women’s Preventive Services Initiative (WPSI). WPSI’s purpose is to improve women’s health across the lifespan by engaging a coalition of provider, academic, and patient-focused health professional organizations to do the following:
1) Identify and recommend evidence-based updates to the HRSA-supported Women’s Preventive Services Guidelines (Guidelines);
2) Raise awareness and knowledge of these Guidelines; and
3) Increase clinicians’ adoption and utilization of these Guidelines.
Under 42 U.S.C. § 300gg-13(a)(4) and 45 CFR § 147.130(a)(1)(ivi), as further implemented, non-grandfathered group health plans and health insurance issuers offering group and individual health insurance coverage must provide coverage without cost sharing (such as a copayment, coinsurance, or a deductible) for preventive care and screenings as provided for in such HRSA-supported comprehensive preventive services guidelines for women.
As of June 2020, the HRSA-supported Women’s Preventive Services Guidelines cover 12 topics: well-woman visits, human immunodeficiency virus infection, cervical cancer, contraception, breast cancer, urinary incontinence, interpersonal and domestic violence, gestational diabetes mellitus, sexually transmitted infections, breastfeeding services and supplies, diabetes mellitus after pregnancy, and screening for anxiety.
