Non-grandfathered health plans must provide coverage for certain recommended preventive care services with no cost sharing applied to participants. The recommendations are issued by the United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF), the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) of the CDC, and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA).
