ACTION: Notice of extension of the deadline for submission of supporting information. AGENCY: emcdonald on DSK2BSOYB1PROD with NOTICES Number of responses per respondent Number of respondents Type of respondent SUMMARY: This notice extends the deadline for submitting supporting information to request a temporary code under the Treatment of Certain Complex Diagnostic Laboratory Tests Demonstration. The deadline for submitting supporting information to request a temporary code under the Demonstration, which ended on August 1, 2011, has been extended to September 6, 2011. DATES: Supporting information to request a temporary code under the Demonstration is due to CMS on or before September 6, 2011. ADDRESSES: Supporting information should be mailed to the following address: Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, Attention: Linda R.

Please refer to file code [CMS–5058– N] on all supporting information for a temporary G-code under the Demonstration. Because of staffing and resource limitations, we cannot accept proposals by facsimile (Fax) transmission. Hard copies and electronic copies must be identical. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Linda R. Lebovic at (410) 786–3402 or by e-mail at ACA3113labdemo@cms.hhs.gov. On July 5, 2011, we published a notice in the Federal Register (76 FR 39110 through 39111) to inform interested parties of an opportunity to participate in the Treatment of Certain Complex Diagnostic Laboratory Tests Demonstration. The Demonstration is mandated by section 3113 of the Affordable Care Act. The notice also serves to notify interested parties that they must obtain a temporary code from CMS for tests currently billed using a ‘‘not otherwise classified (NOC)’’ code but that would otherwise meet the criteria set forth in section 3113 for being a complex diagnostic laboratory test under the Demonstration. Following the publication of the July 5, 2011 notice, CMS received requests from the public to extend the deadline beyond August 1, 2011. We believe we can accommodate the public’s request to extend the deadline for submitting the supporting information needed to request a Temporary Demonstration Gcode and still begin payment under the Demonstration beginning January 1, 2012 as planned. We have decided to extend the deadline for submitting SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00061 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Total burden (hours) supporting information to September 6, 2011.
