Download as PDF mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 212 / Wednesday, November 4, 2009 / Notices received from a provider who is not listed on the contractors’ computer listing of authorized providers; or (3) when a former TRICARE-authorized provider requests reinstatement. The contractors develop the forms used to gather information based on TRICARE conditions for participation listed above. Without the collection of this information, contractors cannot determine if the provider meets TRICARE-authorization requirements for corporate services providers. If the contractor is unable to verify that a provider meets these authorization requirements, the contractor may not reimburse either the provider or the beneficiary for the provider’s health care services. To reduce the reporting burden to a minimum, TRICARE has carefully selected the information requested from respondents. Only that information which has been deemed absolutely essential is being requested. If necessary, contractors may verify credentials with Medicare, JCAHO and other national organizations by telephone. TRICARE is also participating with Medicare in the development of a National Provider System which will eliminate duplication of provider certification data collection among Federal government agencies. TRICARE contractors are required to maintain a computer listing of all providers that have submitted the appropriate authorization information and documentation. To avoid duplicate inquires, the contractors must search the computer provider listing before requesting documentation from providers. Since the providers affected by this information collection generally have not previously been eligible to be authorized providers, TRICARE contractors will have no information on file. The providers will have to submit the information requested on the data collection form (Application for TRICARE–Providers Status: Corporate Services Provider) in order to obtain provider authorization status under TRICARE. The information will usually be collected from each respondent only once. It is estimated that there will be approximately 200 applicants per year. TRICARE will request the provider authorization documentation and information when the provider asks to become TRICARE-authorized or when a claim is filed for a new provider’s services. If after a provider has been authorized by a contractor, no claims are filed during two-year period of time, the provider’s information will be placed in the inactive file. To reactivate VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:29 Nov 03, 2009 Jkt 220001 57155 a file, the provider must verify that the information is still correct, or supply new or changed information. The total annual reporting burden is estimated to be 200 hours. viewing on the Internet at http:// www.regulations.gov as they are received without change, including any personal identifiers or contact information.
