Proposed Collection Title: Prostate, Lung, Colorectal and Ovarian Cancer Screening Trial. Type of Information Collection Request: EXTENSION, OMB control number 0925–0407, expiration date July 31, 2005. Need and Use of Information Collection: This trial is designed to determine if screening for prostate, lung, colorectal and ovarian cancer can reduce mortality from these cancers which currently cause an estimated 263,000 deaths annually in the U.S. The design is a two-armed randomized trial of men and women aged 55 to 74 at entry. The total sample size t is 154,938. The primary endpoint of the trial is cancer-specific mortality for each of the four cancer sites (prostate, lung, colorectum, and ovary). In addition, cancer incidence, stage shift, and case survival are to be monitored to help understand and explain results. Biologic prognostic characteristics of the cancers will be measured and correlated with mortality to determine the mortality predictive value of these intermediate endpoints. Basic demographic data, risk factor data for the four cancer sites and screening history data, as collected from all subjects at baseline, will be used to assure comparability between the screening and control groups and make appropriate adjustments in analysis. Further, demographic and risk factor information may be used to analyze the differential effectiveness of screening in high versus low risk individuals. Frequency of Response: On occasion. Affected Public: Individuals or households. Type of Respondents: Adult men and women. The annual reporting burden is as follows: Estimated Number of Respondents: 145,852; Estimated Number of Responses Per Respondent: 1.14; Average Burden Hours Per Response: 0.14; and Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours Requested: 23,278. The annualized cost to respondents is estimated at: $232,780. There are no Capital Costs to report. There are no Operating or Maintenance Costs to report.

Survey of Medicaid Directors Regarding Medicaid Mental Health Services and Policy—New The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) will conduct a survey of State Medicaid directors to learn about the relationships between State mental health authorities and State Medicaid agencies in each State and the District of Columbia. In addition, SAMHSA will ask about the administration of Medicaid mental health services, the development of Medicaid mental health policy, mental health services statistics generated by Medicaid programs, and the characteristics of mental healthrelated data maintained by Medicaid agencies and used by mental health and other state agencies. The survey will contact State Medicaid directors in all fifty States (and the District of Columbia) and will gather information on the following five survey domains: Organization structure; Medicaid mental health services policy infrastructure; Medicaid mental health services, rates, and funding; Medicaid mental health providers; and, Data. The survey will identify and describe, at the State level, how Medicaid mental health policy is developed; whether Medicaid mental health services and providers are treated differently from other Medicaid services and providers, and if so, how; and the availability of Burden/response (hrs.) 1 Total burden (hrs.) .250 780 data and reports on Medicaid mental health service use/and or expenditures. This information collection supports the New Freedom Initiative, one of SAMHSA’s current priorities. As part of this effort, the President launched the New Freedom Commission on Mental Health to address the problems in the current mental health system. The Commission noted that fragmentation of responsibility for mental health services is a serious problem at the State level. Two of the Commission’s 19 recommendations for the improvement of the mental health system were aimed at this problem. One was directed to States (create a comprehensive State mental health plan) and the other to the Federal government (align relevant Federal programs to improve access and accountability for mental health services). This survey is aimed at providing information that can help in carrying out these recommendations by further illuminating the relationships between State Medicaid and mental health agencies in the development and implementation of mental health policy. Telephone interviews will be conducted with State Medicaid directors. Each interview will last one hour. Because of the open-ended nature of many of the survey questions and the general reluctance of State Medicaid directors to complete detailed paper or electronic surveys, we propose to conduct all the interviews by telephone, unless interviewees prefer to respond to a paper or electronic version.
