Statement of Organization, Functions, and Delegations of Authority, 6111-6112 [2013-01815]

Download as PDF srobinson on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 19 / Tuesday, January 29, 2013 / Notices structured to maximize an applicant’s ability to complete the form satisfactorily, taking into account the characteristics of individuals who qualify for the programs. A State may develop and use its own single streamlined application if approved by the Secretary in accordance with section 1413 and if it meets the standards established by the Secretary. Section 155.405(a) of the Exchange Final Rule (77 FR 18310) provides more detail about the application that must be used by the Exchange to determine eligibility and to collect information necessary for enrollment. The regulations in § 435.907 and § 457.330 establish the requirements for State Medicaid and CHIP agencies related to the use of the single streamlined application. CMS is designing the single streamlined application to be a dynamic online application that will tailor the amount of data required from an applicant based on the applicant’s circumstances and responses to particular questions. The paper version of the application will not be able to be tailored in the same way but is being designed to collect only the data required to determine eligibility. Individuals will be able to submit an application online, through the mail, over the phone through a call center, or in person, per § 155.405(c)(2) of the Exchange Final Rule, as well as through other commonly available electronic means as noted in § 435.907(a) and § 457.330 of the Medicaid Final Rule. The application may be submitted to an Exchange, Medicaid or CHIP agency. The online application process will vary depending on each applicant’s circumstances, their experience with health insurance applications and online capabilities. The goal is to solicit sufficient information so that in most cases no further inquiry will be needed. We estimate that on average it will take approximately .50 hours (30 minutes) to complete for people applying for Insurance Affordability Programs. It will take an estimated .25 hours (15 minutes) to complete without consideration for Insurance Affordability Programs. We expect approximately 7,840,477 applications to be submitted for Insurance Affordability Programs between 2014 and 2016. The total burden is estimated to be 5,548,859 cumulative burden hours. We estimate 1,265,823 applications to be submitted online without consideration for Insurance Affordability Programs between 2014 and 2016, resulting in 284,281 cumulative burden hours. The paper application process will take approximately .75 hours (45 minutes) to complete for those applying for VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:47 Jan 28, 2013 Jkt 229001 Insurance Affordability Programs and .33 hours (20 minutes) for those applying without consideration for Insurance Affordability Programs. We expect approximately 784,048 applications to be submitted for Insurance Affordability Programs on paper in 2014 through 2016 for a cumulative total of 588,035 burden hours. We estimate 126,583 applications will be submitted without consideration for Insurance Affordability Programs from 2014 through 2016. Total burden hours are expected to be 41,772 burden between 2014 and 2016. CMS received approximately 65 public comments in response to the 60 day notice. These comments addressed a range of topics, including the application process, paper and/or online accessibility, processes for verifying information, privacy and security of information, and the types of questions or data elements that should be included. CMS made significant changes to the application materials, namely moving from categories of data elements to completed draft applications. Because of the significant changes throughout, it is not feasible to list each individual change. CMS also adjusted the burden estimates due to changes in coverage estimates due to Congressional Budget Office revisions from July 2012. The expected number of applications between 2014–216 has increased to 7,840,477 from 7,700,260; the estimated burden hours have increased from 5,548,859 to 1,812,230.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: This Request for Information (RFI) solicits ideas and information related to ways in which the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) can work with interested partners to disseminate and apply a library of short, evidence-based messages known as TXT4Tots. This library of brief informational nutrition and physical activity focused messages was developed and tested by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) under a cooperative agreement with the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). The TXT4Tots library is targeted to parents and caregivers of children, ages 1–5 years, and is available in both English and Spanish. Content for the messages was derived from AAP’s ‘‘Bright Futures: Guidelines for Health Supervision of Infants, Children, and Adolescents,’’ which uses a developmentally based approach to address children’s health needs in the context of family and community. The name TXT4Tots describes the library of developed messages and does not necessarily imply the need for dissemination through mobile, Short Message Service messaging. HRSA is issuing this RFI to solicit information and ideas on how to effectively incorporate the TXT4Tots library of messages into a wide variety of existing public and private programs and products that can best meet the needs of parents, caregivers, and child advocates, including health care providers. We recognize there are multiple ways this can occur and, therefore, are seeking input on how the TXT4Tots message library could be maximized to advance understanding about toddler and preschool nutrition and physical activity, and the interests of potential partners in working with HHS to do so. The intent is to build upon current programs, policies, and infrastructure to enhance education, disseminate the TXT4Tots message SUMMARY: II. Delegations of Authority Dated: January 24, 2013.
