Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 142 / Tuesday, July 26, 2005 / Notices Modernization Act of 2003 (MMA), Pub.L. 108–173, created a new voluntary prescription drug benefit program. The MMA stipulates that Medicare beneficiaries who meet income and resource limits are eligible to receive a subsidy for this program. Medicare beneficiaries who are not automatically enrolled in the subsidy program may apply for subsidy consideration using form OMB No. 0960–0696 (SSA–1020), the Application for Help with Medicare Prescription Drug Plan Costs. Approximately 19 million Medicare recipients will receive form SSA–1020, which includes a cover letter encouraging them to complete and return the application form to the Social Security Administration (SSA) immediately. However, there are many applicants who may not immediately return their completed applications. The earlier SSA receives subsidy applications, the more time it has to confirm information on the applications, process them, and make a subsidy determination in anticipation of the January 2006 subsidy program’s beginning. For this reason, SSA plans to conduct a phone survey of individuals who received the subsidy application but did not return it to SSA. The purpose of the survey is to encourage these individuals to return the completed application to SSA. Respondents are Medicare recipients who have been mailed form SSA–1020 but have not yet returned the form. Type of Collection: Emergency information collection (new). Number of Respondents: 15,000,000 (maximum). Frequency of Response: 1. Average Burden Per Response: 2.5 minutes. Estimated Annual Burden: 625,000 hours. Dated: July 19, 2005. Elizabeth A.
