ACHA Comments on Proposed Changes to Title IX
ACHA submitted comments to the Department of Education on its proposed rule for reforming how institutions of higher education would be required to handle sexual harassment and assault cases in order to avoid being found deliberately indifferent under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX). The Department received over 96,000 public comments on the proposed rule. ACHA’s comments can be found here [pdf], as well as in the Department’s online docket for the proposed rule.
New Guidelines for Providing HIV PrEP through College Health Programs
College health centers are in a unique position to
implement comprehensive, evidenced-based prevention
strategies that will promote overall well-being and help
to end the HIV epidemic among young adults. ACHA's PrEP in College Health Task Force has developed guidelines to serve as a roadmap and a resource for college health
services in providing PrEP and to assist with front line
implementation. These guidelines, along with others, can be viewed here.
Update: Concerns for Colleges Promoting to Students
Short-Term Limited Duration Insurance or Other Plans that Are
Not Compliant with the Affordable Care Act
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recently issued regulations for short-term limited duration
insurance (STLDI), and these regulations make it clear that colleges cannot offer STLDI as student health
insurance coverage. ACHA has received inquiries on whether offering students
the recently authorized short-term limited duration insurance (STLDI) could be a viable option for colleges and has published this update to provide guidance to schools on the topic of STLDI plans.
