Federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or 
continuing collections of information in accordance with the Paperwork 
Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA95) (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)). This program 
helps to ensure that requested data can be provided in the desired 
format, reporting burden (time and financial resources) is minimized, 
collection instruments are clearly understood, and the impact of 
collection requirements on respondents can be properly assessed. 
Currently, the IHS is providing a 60-day advance opportunity for public 
comment on a proposed new collection of information to be submitted to 
the Office of Management and Budget for review.
    Proposed Collection:

collection is to authorize contract health care providers to provide 
health care services to eligible IHS patients. The IHS form 843-1A

    The information collection is needed to administer and manage the 
contract health care services provided to eligible American Indian and 
Alaska Native patients. The form is used to: Authorize contract health 
care services for eligible patients; certify that the health care 
services requested and authorized have been performed by the contract 
provider(s); process payments for health care services performed by 
such providers; obtain program data; and, serve as a legal document for
