In compliance with the requirement of section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is publishing the following summary of proposed AGENCY: PO 00000 Frm 00029 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 collections for public comment. 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 functions; (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: New collection; Title of Information Collection: HCPCS Level II Code Modification Request Process; Use: For Medicare and other health insurance programs to ensure that claims are processed in an orderly and consistent manner, standardized coding systems are essential. The Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) Level II Code Set is one of the standard code sets used for this purpose. Level II of the HCPCS, also referred to as alpha-numeric codes, is a standardized coding system that is used primarily to identify products, supplies, and services not included in the Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes, such as ambulatory services and durable medical equipment, prosthetics, orthotics, and supplies (DMEPOS) when used in the home or outpatient setting. As technology evolves and new products are developed, there are continuous changes to the HCPCS codeset. Modifications to the HCPCS are initiated via application form submitted by any interested stakeholder. These applications have been received on an on-going basis with an annual deadline for each cycle. In October 2003, the Secretary of Health and Human Services delegated CMS authority to maintain and distribute HCPCS Level II Codes. As a result, the National Panel was delineated and CMS continued with the decision-making process under its current structure, the CMS HCPCS Workgroup. CMS’ Council on Technological Innovation (CTI) has instituted a number of improvements to the HCPCS process. Specific process refinements include public notification of CMS’ preliminary decisions, and a new opportunity to respond to CMS’ preliminary decisions at a public meeting before a final decision is reached by the workgroup. CMS has streamlined the form into a userfriendly application. The content of the material is the same, but the questions E:\FR\FM\20JYN1.SGM 20JYN1

Federal Travel Regulation (FTR) (41 CFR chapters 300-304).

DATES: Please submit comments by September 18, 2007.

ADDRESSES: Written comments should be sent to Ms. Jane Groat, Travel
