ORR proposes new data collection form for serious medical procedure requests

  1. Original Date Announced

    November 25, 2020

    ORR has submitted a new proposed data collection for OMB approval, the Serious Medical Procedure Request Form. The form, which will be completed by healthcare provider and ORR grantee staff, will provide data for ORR to determine whether to approve requests for children in ORR custody to receive surgery or other procedures treating complex medical or dental conditions. Procedures requiring general anesthesia, surgeries, and invasive diagnostic procedures (e.g., cardiac catheterization, invasive biopsy, amniocentesis) require advance ORR approval. The form will not be required for emergency procedures, procedures performed during hospitalization, or procedures resulting from complication of a previously approved procedure. Comments from the public are due within 30 days. [ID #1189]
