Interested persons are invited to send comments regarding this burden estimate or any other aspect of this collection of information, including any of the following subjects: (1) The necessity and utility of the proposed information collection for the proper performance of the Agency’s function; (2) the accuracy of the estimated burden; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology to minimize the information collection burden. 1. Type of Information Collection Request: Extension of a currently approved collection; Title of Information Collection: Independent Renal Dialysis Facility Cost Report and supporting regulations 42 CFR 413.20 and 42 CFR 413.24; Form No.: CMS– 265–94 (OMB# 0938–0236); Use: Providers of services participating in the Medicare program are required under sections 1815(a), 1833(e), 1861(v)(1)(A) and 1881(b)(2)(B) of the Social Security Act to submit annual information to achieve reimbursement for health care services rendered to Medicare beneficiaries. The Form CMS 265–94 cost report is needed to determine the amount of reasonable cost due to the providers for furnishing medical services to Medicare beneficiaries. The data collected will be used for the following additional purposes: (a) Determination of reimbursement rates for renal dialysis treatments, selfdialysis training, and other reasonable and medically necessary services rendered in connection with these treatments; (b) justification of requests for adjustments or exceptions in the reimbursements rates; and, (c) accumulation of data for overall evaluation. Worksheet B, Worksheet C and Worksheet D have been modified to implement provisions of the Medicare Prescription Drug Improvement and Modernization Act of 2003. On Worksheet B, the allocation of Administrative and General cost to Separately Billable Drugs was eliminated. On Worksheet C, two columns were sub-divided to identify services before, on or after 4/1/2005. A line was added to Worksheet D to report bad debts for dual eligible beneficiaries. None of these changes request new information; rather, the changes require reporting of data in greater detail than was previously reported. Frequency: VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:06 May 17, 2007 Jkt 211001 Reporting—Annually; Affected Public: Business or other for-profit, Not-forprofit institutions; Number of Respondents: 4,885; Total Annual Responses: 4,885; Total Annual Hours: 957,460. 2. Type of Information Collection Request: Extension of a currently approved collection; Title of Information Collection: Medicare Participating Physician or Supplier Agreement; Form No.: CMS–460 (OMB# 0938–0373); Use: The CMS–460 is the agreement a physician, supplier or their authorized official signs to participate in Medicare Part B. By signing the agreement to participate in Medicare, the physician, supplier or their authorized official agrees to accept the Medicare-determined payment for Medicare covered services as payment in full and to charge the Medicare Part B beneficiary no more than the applicable deductible or coinsurance for the covered services. For purposes of this explanation, the term a supplier means any person or entity that may bill Medicare for Part B services (e.g. DME supplier, nurse practitioner, supplier of diagnostic tests) except a Medicare provider of services (e.g. hospital), which must participate to be paid by Medicare for covered care. There are additional benefits associated with payment for services paid under the Medicare fee schedule. Payments made under the Medicare fee schedule for physician services to participating physicians and suppliers are based on 100 percent of the Medicare fee schedule amount, while the Medicare fee schedule payment for physician services by nonparticipating physicians and suppliers is based on 95 percent of the fee schedule amount. Physicians and suppliers who do not participate in Medicare are subject to limits on their actual charges for unassigned claims for physician services. These limits, known as limiting charges, cannot exceed 115 percent of the non-participant fee schedule, which is set at 95 percent of the full fee schedule amount. In addition, if a physician or supplier does not accept assignment on a claim for Medicare payment, the physician or supplier must collect payment from the beneficiary. If the physician or supplier accepts assignment on the claim, Medicare pays its share of the payment directly to the physician or supplier, resulting in faster and more certain payment.
