All three of these statutes require that OWCP pay for medical treatment of VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:18 May 01, 2006 Jkt 208001 beneficiaries; BLBA also requires that OWCP pay for medical examinations and related diagnostic services to determine eligibility for benefits under that statute. In order to determine whether billed amounts are appropriate, OWCP needs to identify the patient, the injury or illness that was treated or diagnosed, the specific services that are rendered and their relationship to the work-related injury or illness. The regulations implementing these statutes require the use of Form OWCP–1500 for medical bills submitted by certain physicians and other providers (20 CFR 10.801, 30.701, 725.405, 725.406, 725.701 and 725.704). The OWCP–1500 is used by OWCP and contractor bill payment staff to process bills for medical services provided by medical professionals other than medical services provided by hospitals, pharmacies, and certain other providers. This information collection is currently approved for use through November 30, 2006. II. Review Focus: The Department of Labor is particularly interested in comments which: • Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; • Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; • Enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and • Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submissions of responses. III.
