On January 15, 2013, the USPTO published a notice requesting comments from the public on potential practices that applicants can employ at the drafting stage of a patent application in order to facilitate examination and bring more certainty to the scope of issued patents. See Request for Comments on Preparation of Patent Applications, 78 FR 2960 (January 15, 2013). Specifically, the USPTO requested input on whether adoption of a variety of potential practices by applicants early in the patent preparation process would assist the public in determining the scope of claims as well as the meaning of claim terms in the specification after a patent is granted. The notice invited the public to submit written comments on the potential practices on or before March 15, 2013. The USPTO has received several requests for additional time to submit comments, and is now extending the period for submission of public comments until April 15, 2013. srobinson on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Dated:_March 11, 2013.

ACTION: Notice for termination of a Disease Management Demonstration Project for TRICARE Standard Beneficiaries. AGENCY: SUMMARY: This notice is to advise interested parties of the termination of a Military Health System (MHS) demonstration project entitled ‘‘Disease Management Demonstration Project for TRICARE Standard Beneficiaries.’’ The demonstration provided disease management (DM) services to TRICARE Standard beneficiaries who are not eligible to receive some DM-like services under the basic benefit regulations. TRICARE began the demonstration project in March 2007 for Standard beneficiaries and this demonstration project has enabled the MHS to evaluate the programs and identify ways to improve the provision of effective services by detecting strengths and weaknesses of the programs, as well as evidence of best practices. As the TRICARE Management Activity (TMA) chose a phased approach, the demonstration was extended twice, on March 16, 2009 (74 FR 11089–11090), and again on March 4, 2011 (76 FR 12081–12082), to allow time for all program evaluations. TMA intends to continue to provide DM services to eligible TRICARE beneficiaries through strategies based on evidence-based best practices, beneficiary’s needs, plan category, and location of health care provision. DATES: Effective date: March 31, 2013. ADDRESSES: TRICARE Management Activity (TMA), 7700 Arlington Boulevard, Suite 5101, Falls Church, VA 22042–5101.
