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

    The CHGME Payment Program 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. The 
CHGME Payment Program application forms received OMB clearance on June 
30, 2010. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) final rule 
regarding Sections 5503, 5504, 5505 and 5506 of the Affordable Care Act 
of 2010, Public Law 111-148, published in the Federal Register on 
Wednesday, November 24, 2010, requires some modification of the data 
collection within the CHGME Payment Program application. The CHGME 
Payment Program application forms have been

adjusted to accommodate CMS policy and require OMB approval.
    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.
    The estimated annual burden is as follows:
