Precision HealthCare Consultants, a premium healthcare consulting company, recently secured a contract with the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to provide Personal Assistant Services (PAS) to people with disabilities.
“We are definitely honored for this initiative of the HHS,” says Vanessa Best, CEO of Precision HealthCare Consultants. According to Best, this endeavor can help the employees of multiple HHS divisions and regional offices, such as its Equal Employment Opportunity Compliance and Operations Division (EEOCO).
The PAS Accommodation is an amendment to the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, made effective at HHS on January 3, 2018. This requires the provision of PAS to “certain employees with targeted disabilities” without any discrimination as long as the requested and required assistant tasks are related to non-medical and non-work activities.
Targeted disabilities on the official list of the Federal Office of Personnel Management (OPM) include: deafness, blindness, missing extremities, partial paralysis, complete paralysis, convulsive disorders, intellectual disabilities, mental illness, and distortion of limb and/or spine. Recipients of PAS Accommodation include HHS’ current employees, visitors, and job applicants who need assistance in performing daily activities to ensure that they have equal access to employment opportunities and usage of all relevant HHS facilities.
“As a company, Precision HealthCare Consultants is a Women Owned Small Business 8(a); WOSB) and a certified HUBZone business,” says Best. “With those in mind, we look forward to more opportunities to provide the services needed by the HHS and hopefully, other government agencies as well.”
