Proposed Project: Children's Hospitals Graduate Medical Education 
Payment Program (CHGME PP) (OMB No. 0915-0247)--Extension

    The CHGME PP was enacted by Public Law 106-129 and reauthorized by 
Public Law 109-307 to provide Federal support for graduate medical 
education (GME) to freestanding children's hospitals. This legislation 
attempts to provide support for GME comparable to the level of Medicare 
GME support received by other, non-children's hospitals. The 
legislation indicates that eligible children's hospitals will receive 
payments for both direct and indirect medical education. Direct 
payments are designed to offset the expenses associated with operating 
approved graduate medical residency training programs and indirect 
payments are designed to compensate hospitals for expenses associated 
with the treatment of more severely ill patients and the additional 
costs relating to teaching residents in such programs.
    Data are collected on the number of full-time equivalent residents 
in applicant children's hospitals' training programs to determine the 
amount of direct and indirect medical education payments to be 
distributed to participating children's hospitals. Indirect medical 
education payments will also be derived from a formula that requires 
the reporting of discharges, beds, and case mix index information from 
participating children's hospitals. Hospitals will be requested to 
submit such information in an annual application. Hospitals will also 
be requested to submit data on the number of full-time equivalent 
residents a second time during the Federal fiscal year to participate 
in the reconciliation payment process.
