Download as PDF mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES 70906 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 239 / Thursday, December 13, 2007 / Notices Retirement Board (RRB) is forwarding an Information Collection Request (ICR) to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to request a revision to a currently approved collection of information: 3220–0185, Report of Medicaid State Office on Beneficiary’s In Status consisting of Form RL–380–F, Report to State Medicaid Office. Our ICR describes the information we seek to collect from the public. Review and approval by OIRA ensures that we impose appropriate paperwork burdens. The RRB invites comments on the proposed collection of information to determine (1) the practical utility of the collection; (2) the accuracy of the estimated burden of the collection; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information that is the subject of collection; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of collections on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Comments to RRB or OIRA must contain the OMB control number of the ICR. For proper consideration of your comments, it is best if RRB and OIRA receive them within 30 days of publication date. Under Section 7(d) of the Railroad Retirement Act, the RRB administers the Medicare program for persons covered by the railroad retirement system. Under Section 1843 of the Social Security Act, states may enter into ‘‘buy-in agreements’’ with the Secretary of Health and Human Services for the purpose of enrolling certain groups of low-income individuals under the Medicare medical insurance (Part B) program and paying the premiums for their insurance coverage. Generally, these individuals are categorically needy under Medicaid and meet the eligibility requirements for Medicare Part B. States can also include in their buy-in agreements, individuals who are eligible for medical assistance only. The RRB uses Form RL–380–F, Report to State Medicaid Office, to obtain information needed to determine if certain railroad beneficiaries are entitled to receive Supplementary Medical Insurance program coverage under a state buy-in agreement in states in which they reside. Completion of Form RL–380–F is voluntary. One response is received from each respondent. At the request of various state Medicaid offices, the RRB proposes revisions to Form RL–380–F to add items requesting a beneficiary’s Part A and Part B effective date. The new information will assist them in locating pertinent records of the subject beneficiary. Other minor non-burden VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:10 Dec 12, 2007 Jkt 214001 impacting editorial changes are proposed. Previous Requests for Comments: The RRB has already published the initial 60-day notice (72 FR 57078 on October 5, 2007) required by 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2). That request elicited no comments. Information Collection Request (ICR) Title: Report of Medicaid State Office on Beneficiary’s Buy-In Status. OMB Control Number: 3220–0185. Form(s) submitted: RL–380–F. Type of request: Revision of a currently approved collection. Affected public: State, Local or Tribal government. Abstract: Under the Railroad Retirement Act, the Railroad Retirement Board administers the Medicare program for persons covered by the railroad retirement system. The collection obtains the information needed to determine if certain railroad beneficiaries are entitled to receive Supplementary Medical Insurance program coverage under a state buy-in agreement in states in which they reside. Changes Proposed: The RRB proposes to add items requesting a beneficiary’s Part A and Part B effective date to Form RL–380–F. Other minor non-burden impacting editorial changes are proposed.
