The information will be required of each employee upon initial application with subsequent information collections for the purposes of confirming accuracy of previous submissions or updating information from previous submissions. Information collection will begin during initial open enrollment in October 2013, per § 155.410 of the Exchanges Final Rule. Applications for the SHOP will be collected year round, per the rolling enrollment requirements of § 155.725 of the Exchanges Final Rule. Employees will be able to submit an application for the SHOP online, using a paper application, over the phone through a call center operated by an Exchange, or in person through an agent, broker, or Navigator, per § 155.730(f) of the Exchanges Final Rule. If an employee does not enroll in coverage through the SHOP, the information will be erased after a specified period of time. If an employee enrolls in coverage through the SHOP, the information will be retained to document the enrollment, to allow reconciliation with issuer records, and to provide information for future coverage renewals or changes in coverage. Every qualified employee of an employer participating in the SHOP who wishes to apply for coverage through the SHOP will need to complete an application to determine his or her eligibility. The applicant will also be asked to verify his or her understanding of the application and sign attestations regarding information in the application. The completed application will be submitted to the SHOP in the employer’s state. Applicants who choose to complete the electronic application will need to create an online account at the beginning of the application process. We estimate that it will take approximately 0.159 hours (9.53 minutes) per applicant to submit a completed paper application. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimates approximately 3 million people will enroll in health insurance through a SHOP in 2014. Assuming family size of approximately 3 per employee, we expect approximately 1 million employees to complete an application in 2014 for a total of approximately 93,300 burden hours. CBO estimates approximately 2 million people will enroll in health insurance through a SHOP in 2015 and 3 million in 2016. Consequently, we estimate that approximately 666,666 employees will apply to a SHOP in 2015 E:\FR\FM\29JAN1.SGM 29JAN1
