The NIH has simplified and clarified its presentation of deposit options under its OA policy. From the new language on the policy home page:
Authors may submit a paper to the journal of their choice for publication. There are four methods to ensure that a manuscript is submitted to PubMed Central in compliance with the NIH Public Access Policy.
Method D: Complete the submission process for a final peer-reviewed manuscript that the publisher has deposited in the NIH Manuscript Submission System (NIHMS).
These methods vary in the version of the paper submitted, and the actions undertaken by the author and publisher. Please see Submission Process for more information....

Putting peer-reviewed scientific and scholarly literature
on the internet. Making it available free of charge and
free of most copyright and licensing restrictions.
Removing the barriers to serious research.
