To a CMS contractor (including, but not necessarily limited to fiscal intermediaries and carriers) that assists in the administration of a CMSadministered health benefits program, or to a grantee of a CMS-administered grant program, when disclosure is deemed reasonably necessary by CMS to prevent, deter, discover, detect, investigate, examine, prosecute, sue with respect to, defend against, correct, remedy, or otherwise combat fraud or abuse in such program. 11. To another Federal agency or to an instrumentality of any governmental jurisdiction within or under the control of the United States (including any State or local governmental agency), that administers, or that has the authority to investigate potential fraud or abuse in, a health benefits program funded in whole or in part by Federal funds, when disclosure is deemed reasonably necessary by CMS to prevent, deter, discover, detect, investigate, examine, prosecute, sue with respect to, defend against, correct, remedy, or otherwise combat fraud or abuse in such programs. B. Additional Provisions Affecting Routine Use Disclosures: To the extent this system contains Protected Health Information (PHI) as defined by HHS regulation ‘‘Standards for Privacy of Individually Identifiable Health Information’’ (45 CFR Parts 160 and 164, Subparts A and E) 65 FR 82462 (12–28– 00). Disclosures of such PHI that are otherwise authorized by these routine uses may only be made if, and as, permitted or required by the ‘‘Standards for Privacy of Individually Identifiable Health Information.’’ (See 45 CFR 164– 512(a)(1)). In addition, our policy will be to prohibit release even of data not directly identifiable, except pursuant to one of the routine uses or if required by law, if we determine there is a possibility that an individual can be identified through implicit deduction based on small cell sizes (instances where the patient population is so small that individuals who are familiar with the enrollees could, because of the small size, use this information to deduce the identity of the beneficiary). POLICIES AND PRACTICES FOR STORING, RETRIEVING, ACCESSING, RETAINING, AND DISPOSING OF RECORDS IN THE SYSTEM: STORAGE: All records are stored electronically. VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:39 Mar 06, 2006 Jkt 208001 11427 RETRIEVABILITY: NOTIFICATION PROCEDURE: All Medicare records are accessible by HICN, and SSN search.

Furnishing the SSN is voluntary, but it may make searching for a record easier and prevent delay. SAFEGUARDS: CMS has safeguards in place for authorized users and monitors such users to ensure against excessive or unauthorized use. Personnel having access to the system have been trained in the Privacy Act and information security requirements. Employees who maintain records in this system are instructed not to release data until the intended recipient agrees to implement appropriate management, operational and technical safeguards sufficient to protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the information and information systems and to prevent unauthorized access. This system will conform to all applicable Federal laws and regulations and Federal, HHS, and CMS policies and standards as they relate to information security and data privacy.

L. 98–457, 42 U.S.C. 10401 et seq.) is entitled the ‘‘Family Violence Prevention and Services Act’’ (FVPSA). FVPSA was first implemented in FY 1986. The statute was subsequently amended by Public Law 100–294, the ‘‘Child Abuse Prevention, Adoptions, and Family Services Act of 1988;’’ further amended in 1992 by Public Law 102–295; and then amended in 1994 by Public Law 103–322, the ‘‘Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act.’’ FVPSA was amended again in 1996 by Public Law 104–235, the ‘‘Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (CAPTA) of 1996; in 2000 by Public Law 106–386, the ‘‘Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act,’’ and amended further by Public Law 108–36, the ‘‘Keeping Children and Families Safe Act of 2003.’’ FVPSA was most recently amended by Public Law 109–162, the ‘‘Violence Against Women and Department of Justice Reauthorization Act of 2005.’’ FVPSA may be found at 42 U.S.C. 10401 et seq. The purpose of this legislation is to assist States and Indian Tribes, Tribal organizations, and non-profit private organizations approved by an Indian Tribe in supporting the establishment, maintenance, and expansion of programs and projects to prevent incidents of family violence and to provide immediate shelter and related assistance for victims of family violence and their dependents. Background During FY 2005, 237 grants were made to States and Indian Tribes, Tribal organizations, non-profit private organizations approved by Indian Tribes. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) also made 53 family violence prevention grant awards to non-profit State domestic violence coalitions.

The four SIRCs are the Battered Women’s Justice Project, the Resource Center on Child Custody and Protection, Sacred Circle Resource Center for the Elimination of Domestic Violence Against Native Women, and the Health Resource Center on Domestic Violence.

NDVH is a 24-hour, toll-free service that provides crisis assistance, counseling, and local shelter referrals to women across the country. Hotline counselors also are available for nonEnglish speaking persons and for people who are hearing-impaired.
