VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:15 Apr 30, 2009 Jkt 217001 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), Department of Health and Human Services, is publishing the following summary of proposed 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 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: Medicare Program; Conditions for Payment of Power Mobility Devices, including Power Wheelchairs and Power-Operated Vehicles; Use: CMS is renewing our request for approval for the collection requirements associated with the final rule, CMS–3017–F (71 FR 17021), which was published on April 5, 2006 and became effective on June 5, 2006. The regulation CMS–3017–F finalized provisions set forth in the interim final regulation (70 FR 50940) published on August 26, 2005. This final rule conforms our regulations to section 302(a)(2)(E)(iv) of the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act of 2003. This rule defines the term power mobility devices (PMDs) as power wheelchairs and power operated vehicles (POVs or scooters). It sets forth revised conditions for Medicare payment of PMDs and defines who may prescribe PMDs. This rule also requires a face-to-face examination of the beneficiary by the physician or treating practitioner, a written prescription, and receipt of pertinent parts of the medical record by the supplier within 45 days after the face-to-face examination that the durable medical equipment (DME) suppliers maintain in their records and make available to CMS and its agents upon request. Finally, this rule discusses CMS’ policy on documentation that may be requested by CMS and its agents to support a Medicare claim for payment. Since the implementation of regulation CMS–3017–F, there have been no new requirements that have PO 00000 Frm 00045 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 necessitated changes to any burden. The change in total burden is attributable to an estimate of claims for PMD that were higher than the estimate of claims calculated for this PRA package. For example, last time CMS calculated burden estimates associated with this regulation to be 243,000 claims. For this package, CMS estimates that 240,325 claims will be submitted for payment in 2009. This translates into 48,065 hours instead of 48,600 hours, resulting in a difference of 535 hours less burden than originally estimated. Form Number: CMS–10116 (OMB #0938–0971); Frequency: Occasionally; Affected Public: Private Sector; Number of Respondents: 89,411; Total Annual Responses: 240,325; Total Annual Hours: 48,065.

OMB No.: 0980–0229. Description: The Child Abuse and Neglect Treatment Act (42 U.S.C. 5101 et seq.) as amended requires States to annually work with the Secretary to provide to the maximum extent practical, a report that includes 12 data items listed in the statute. The National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System (NCANDS), administered by the Children’s Bureau, meets this reporting requirement. In addition, the amendments of 1988 require that the data system shall be universal and case specific and integrated with other casebased foster care and adoption data collected by the Secretary. There are two data components, the Detailed Case Data Component (DCDC), which includes the case-level data submitted through the Child File and some aggregated data submitted through the Agency File, and the Summary Data component (SC), which is used by States that cannot submit case-level data. No changes are being requested. The Summary Data Component will be phased out over the next few years as the number of States that can complete the Child File increases.

Initiative (CHMI). Demonstration programs have been funded through 
Healthy Marriage and Responsible Fatherhood grants authorized under 
section 403(a)(2) of the Social Security Act to support healthy 
marriage directly and to encourage community changes that increase 
support for healthy marriages and improve child and family well-being.

community interventions designed to provide marriage education by 
examining the way the projects operate and by examining child support 
outcomes among low-income families in the community; and (2) evaluate 
the community impacts of these interventions on marital stability and 
satisfaction, child well-being and child support outcomes among low-
income families.
    The purpose of this information collection is to conduct a follow-
up survey of respondents from Wave 1 who live in the communities where 
CHMI demonstrations are operating, and a survey of CR141 program 
participants. The impact evaluation will assess the effects of 
community healthy marriage initiatives by comparing family and child 
well-being outcomes in the CR141 communities with similar outcomes in 
comparison communities that are well matched to the demonstration 
project sites.
    Respondents: Community members and program participants in CHMI 
treatment and comparison communities.
