Download as PDF 54752 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 179 / Friday, September 16, 2005 / Notices not specifying particular models of health care systems that demonstration applicants must propose and test, but are looking to applicants to specify the models they believe they can successfully put into practice for the patients they serve in their communities. As provided by applicable Federal statute, physician groups, integrated delivery systems, and organizations representing regional coalitions of physician groups or integrated delivery systems are eligible to apply. Integrated delivery systems must include a full range of health care providers including hospitals, clinics, home health agencies, ambulatory surgery centers, skilled nursing facilities, rehabilitation facilities and clinics, and employed, independent or contracted physicians. Eligible organizations and coalitions may form a new corporate entity for the purpose of representing provider organizations or eligible organizations may designate an existing entity as their representative. However, the entity organizing the coalition and developing the demonstration proposal must be an eligible provider organization. Payments under the MHCQ demonstration will be made for services furnished to Medicare beneficiaries and will be tied to cost savings, as well as improvements in process and outcome measures, increases in efficiencies, and reductions in costs in the targeted population compared to a similar group or sample. Eligible organizations may propose a variety of payment methodologies as long as those methodologies are amenable to an evaluation methodology based upon Medicare claims data. In addition, all proposals must assure budget neutrality and no duplication of payments for existing Medicare benefits. We will not be providing funding for start-up or other costs. III. Collection of Information Requirements This information collection requirement is subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA); however, the collection is currently approved under OMB control number 0938–0880 entitled ‘‘Medicare Demonstration Waiver Application’’ with a current expiration date of July 31, 2006.
