We urge the USPSTF to consider the following two recommendations as it finalizes its plan “Prevention of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) Infection: Preexposure Prophylaxis”: research should explicitly evaluate and describe the ancillary services that are integral to the PrEP intervention and the USPSTF should adopt a more nimble and timely review of the PrEP recommendation as new products see clinical trial success.
We cannot achieve the goal of ending hepatitis without increased funding for the key elements of the strategy, including testing, treating, and vaccination.

The patients we represent appreciate all you are doing to make healthcare more accessible and affordable for beneficiaries. There are many aspects of the proposed rule that we support; however, one issue that we would like to focus on is your desire to offer standardized options for qualified health plans beginning in 2023.
