Public Health Service Agencies

U.S. Public Health Service

  • Within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), eight agencies are designated components of the U.S. Public Health Service (PHS).  
    • The PHS agencies are funded primarily with annual discretionary appropriations.  They also receive significant amounts of funding from other sources, including mandatory funds from the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), user fees, and third-party reimbursements.  (Excerpted from:  CRS: Public Health Service Agencies: Overview and Funding (FY2016-FY2018)
