In addition, we will partner with evidence-based wellness programs for the purposes of enrolling an estimated 2,000 participants per program.

Form Number: CMS–10509 (OCN: 0938–NEW); Frequency: Semiannually; Affected Public: Individuals and households; Number of Respondents: 20,833; Total Annual Responses: 45,420; Total Annual Hours: 18,531. (For policy questions regarding this collection contact Benjamin Howell at 410–786–4942.) 5. Type of Information Collection Request: Revision of a currently approved collection; Title of Information Collection: Annual MLR and Rebate Calculation Report and MLR Rebate Notices; Use: Under Section 2718 of the Affordable Care Act and implementing regulation at 45 CFR Part 158, a health insurance issuer (issuer) offering group or individual health insurance coverage must submit a report to the Secretary concerning the amount the issuer spends each year on claims, quality improvement expenses, nonclaims costs, Federal and State taxes and licensing and regulatory fees, and the amount of earned premium. An issuer must provide an annual rebate if the amount it spends on certain costs compared to its premium revenue (excluding Federal and States taxes and licensing and regulatory fees) does not meet a certain ratio, referred to as the medical loss ratio (MLR). An interim final rule (IFR) implementing the MLR was published on December 1, 2010 (75 FR 74865) and modified by technical corrections on December 30, 2010 (75 FR 82277), which added Part 158 to Title 45 of the Code of Federal Regulations. The IFR was effective January 1, 2011. A final rule regarding selected provisions of the IFR was published on December 7, 2011 (76 FR 76574) and an interim final rule regarding an issue not included in issuers’ reporting obligations (disbursement of rebates by non-federal governmental plans) was also published December 7, 2011 (76 FR 76596) Both rules published on December 7, 2011 and were effective January 1, 2012. Each issuer is required to submit annually MLR data, including information about any rebates it must provide, on a form we prescribed, for each State in which the issuer conducts business. Each issuer is also required to provide a rebate notice to each policyholder that is owed a rebate and each subscriber of policyholders that are owed a rebate for any given MLR reporting year. Additionally, each issuer is required to maintain for a period of seven years all documents, records and other evidence that support the data included in each issuer’s annual report to the Secretary. Based upon HHS’ experience in the MLR data collection and evaluation process, HHS is updating its annual burden hour estimates to reflect the actual numbers of submissions, rebates and rebate notices. The 2013 MLR Reporting Form and instructions also reflect changes for the 2013 reporting year and beyond that are set forth in the March 2012 update to 45 CFR 158.120(d)(5) regarding aggregation of student health plans on a nationwide basis, similar to expatriate plans. The instructions also addresses recent applicability guidance issued by the Departments of Labor, Treasury and HHS concerning expatriate plan reporting prior to plan years ending before or on December 31, 2015. In 2014, it is expected that issuers will send fewer notices and rebate checks to policyholders and subscribers which will reduce burden on issuers. On the other hand, the requirement to report data on student health plans will increase burden for some issuers. It is estimated that there will be a net reduction in total information collection burden. Form Number: CMS–10418 (OCN: 0938–1164); Frequency: Annually; Affected Public: Private sector—Business or other for-profits and not-for-profit institutions; Number of Respondents: 522; Number of Responses: 3,394; Total Annual Hours: 294,911. (For policy questions regarding this collection, contact Julie McCune at (301) 492–4196.) 6. Type of Information Collection Request: Reinstatement of a previously approved collection; Title of Information Collection: HIPAA Eligibility Transaction System (HETS) Trading Partner Agreement (TPA); Use: The HIPAA Eligibility Transaction System (HETS) is intended to allow the release of eligibility data to Medicare providers, suppliers or their authorized billing agents for the purposes of preparing accurate Medicare claims, determining beneficiary liability or determining eligibility for specific services. Such information may not be disclosed to anyone other than providers, suppliers or a beneficiary for whom a claim has been filed. Form Number: CMS–10157 (OCN: 0938– 0960); Frequency: Yearly; Affected Public: Private sector—Business or other for-profit and not-for-profit institutions; Number of Respondents: 1,000; Total Annual Responses: 1,000; Total Annual Hours: 125.
