The proposed TFR changes that would take effect as of June 30, 2009, would eliminate two existing items, revise two existing items, add 77 new items, add six new reporting codes in Schedule CMR, and add four new questions to Schedule SI on whether a thrift is a trustee or custodian for certain types of accounts or provides certain services in connection with orders for securities transactions regardless of whether the thrift exercises trust powers. The proposed TFR revisions that would take effect December 31, 2009, would eliminate the entire Schedule CSS from the TFR, would add 75 new line items for assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis in a new Schedule FV— Consolidated Assets and Liabilities Measured at Fair Value on a Recurring Basis for thrifts with total assets greater than $10 billion, and would revise Schedule FS—Fiduciary and Related Services by revising 14 existing line items and adding 68 new line items. OTS estimates that the implementation of these reporting revisions will result in an increase in the current reporting burden imposed by the TFR on all savings associations. As part of the approval process, we invite comments addressing one or more of the following points: a. Whether the proposed revisions to the TFR collections of information are necessary for the proper performance of the agency’s functions, including whether the information has practical utility; b. The accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the collection of information; c. Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; d. Ways to minimize the burden of information collections on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques, the Internet, or other forms of information technology; and e. Estimates of capital or start up costs and costs of operation, maintenance, and purchase of services to provide information. OTS will summarize the comments received and include them in the request for OMB approval. All comments will become a matter of public record. Clearance Officer: Ira L.

The regulations include methodologies for establishing billed amounts for the following types of charges: Acute inpatient facility charges; skilled nursing facility/sub-acute inpatient facility (SNF) charges; partial hospitalization facility charges; outpatient facility charges; physician and other professional charges, including professional charges for anesthesia services and dental services; pathology and laboratory charges; observation care facility charges; ambulance and other emergency VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:22 Sep 30, 2008 Jkt 214001 transportation charges; and charges for durable medical equipment, drugs, injectables, and other medical services, items, and supplies identified by Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) Level II codes. The regulations also provide that data for calculating actual charge amounts at individual VA facilities based on these methodologies will either be published in a notice in the Federal Register or will be posted on the Internet site of the Veterans Health Administration Chief Business Office, currently at http:// www1.va.gov/CBO/apps/rates/ index.asp, under ‘‘Charge Data.’’ Certain of these charges are hereby updated as described in the Supplementary Information section of this notice. These changes are effective October 1, 2008. When charges for medical care or services provided or furnished at VA expense by either VA or non-VA providers have not been established under other provisions of the regulations, the method for determining VA’s charges is set forth at 38 CFR 17.101(a)(8). FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Romona Greene, Chief Business Office (168), Veterans Health Administration, Department of Veterans Affairs, 810 Vermont Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20420, (202) 254–0361.

Charges for the following charge types: partial hospitalization facility charges; outpatient facility charges; physician and other professional charges, including professional charges for anesthesia services and dental services; pathology and laboratory charges; observation care facility charges; ambulance and other emergency transportation charges; and charges for durable medical equipment, drugs, injectables, and other medical services, items, and supplies identified by HCPCS Level II codes are not being changed. These Outpatient facility charges and Professional charges remain the same as set forth in a notice published in the Federal Register on December 26, 2007 (72 FR 246). Based on the methodologies set forth in 38 CFR 17.101(b), this document provides an update to acute inpatient charges that were based on 2008 diagnosis related group (DRG). Acute inpatient facility charges by DRG are set forth in Table A in the September 28, 2007, Federal Register notice (72 FR PO 00000 Frm 00173 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 57219 188). Table A in this notice provides updated charges based on 2009 DRGs and will replace Table A in the September 28, 2007, notice. Also, this document provides for an updated all-inclusive per diem charge for skilled nursing facility/sub-acute inpatient facility charge using the methodologies set forth in 38 CFR 17.101(c) and it is adjusted by a geographic area factor based on the location where the care is provided. The skilled nursing facility/sub-acute inpatient facility per diem charge is set forth in Table B in the September 28, 2007, Federal Register notice. Table B in this notice provides the updated allinclusive nationwide skilled nursing facility/sub-acute inpatient facility per diem charge and will replace Table B in the September 28, 2007, notice. The charges in this update for acute inpatient facility and skilled nursing facility/sub-acute inpatient facility services are effective October 1, 2008. In this update, we are retaining the table designations used for acute inpatient facility charges by DRGs in the notice published in the Federal Register on September 28, 2007. We also are retaining the table designation used for skilled nursing facility/sub-acute inpatient facility charges in the notice published in the Federal Register on September 28, 2007. Accordingly, the tables identified as being updated by this notice correspond to the applicable tables published in the September 28, 2007, notice, beginning with Table A through Table B. We have updated the list of data sources presented in Supplementary Table 1 to reflect the updated data sources used to establish the updated charges described in this notice. We have also updated the list of VA medical facility locations. As a reminder, in Supplementary Table 3 posted on the internet site of the Veterans Health Administration Chief Business Office, currently at http:// www1.va.gov/CBO/apps/rates/ index.asp, we set forth the list of VA medical facility locations, which includes the first three-digits of their ZIP Codes and provider-based/nonprovider-based designations. Consistent with VA’s regulations, the updated data tables and supplementary tables containing the changes described in this notice will be posted on the Internet site of the Veterans Health Administration Chief Business Office, currently at http://www1.va.gov/CBO/ apps/rates/index.asp, under ‘‘Charge Data.’’ E:\FR\FM\01OCN1.SGM 01OCN1
