Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Collection; 
Comment Request

    In compliance with the requirements of Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of 
Public Law 104-13, the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the Health 
Resources and Services Administration publishes summaries of proposed 
data collection projects for public comment. Comments are invited 
regarding the following: (a) The necessity of the proposed collection 
of information for the proper performance of the functions of the 
agency; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the 
proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, 
utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways 
to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, 
including through the use of automated collection techniques or other 
forms of information technology.

Proposed Project: Teaching Health Center Graduate Medical Education 
(GME) Program--NEW

    The Teaching Health Center Graduate Medical Education (GME) program 
(Section 340H of the Public Health Service Act) was established by 
Section 5508 of Public Law 111-148, the Patient Protection and 
Affordable Care Act. The program supports training for primary care 
residents (including residents in family medicine, internal medicine, 
pediatrics, internal medicine-pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, 
psychiatry, general dentistry, pediatric dentistry, and geriatrics) in 
community-based ambulatory patient care settings.
    The statute provides that eligible Teaching Health Centers receive 
payments for both direct and indirect costs associated with training 
residents in community-based ambulatory patient care centers. Direct 
payments are designed to compensate eligible Teaching Health Centers 
for those expenses directly associated with resident training, while 
indirect payments are intended to compensate for the additional costs 
of training residents in such programs. Payments are made at the 
beginning of the funding cycle; however, the statute provides for a 
reconciliation process, through which overpayments may be recouped and 
underpayments may be adjusted at the end of the fiscal year. This data 
collection instrument will gather information relating to the numbers 
of residents in Teaching Health Center GME training programs in order 
to reconcile payments for both direct and indirect costs.
    The annual estimate of burden is as follows:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                     Number of     Responses per       Total         Hours per     Total burden
