Proposed Project: Children's Hospitals Graduate Medical Education 
Payment Program (CHGME PP) (OMB No. 0915-0247)--Revision

    The CHGME PP was enacted by Public Law 106-129 to provide Federal 
support for graduate medical education (GME) to freestanding children's 
hospitals. This legislation attempts to provide support for GME 
comparable to the level of Medicare GME support received by other, non-
children's hospitals. The legislation indicates that eligible 
children's hospitals will receive payments for both direct and indirect 
medical education. Direct payments are designed to offset the expenses 
associated with operating approved graduate medical residency training 
programs and indirect payments are designed to compensate hospitals for 
expenses associated with the treatment of more severely ill patients 
and the additional costs relating to teaching residents in such 
programs.
    Data are collected on the number of full-time equivalent residents 
in applicant children's hospitals' training programs to determine the 
amount of direct and indirect medical education payments to be 
distributed to participating children's hospitals. Indirect medical 
education payments will also be derived from a formula that requires 
the reporting of discharges, beds, and case mix index information from 
participating children's hospitals. Hospitals will be requested to 
submit such information in an annual application. Hospitals will also 
be requested to submit data on the number of full-time equivalent 
residents a second time during the Federal fiscal year to participate 
in the reconciliation payment process.
    The estimated annual burden is as follows:
