We note that our regulations require the requesting hospital to use filed hospital cost report discharge data to estimate its annual percentage of total inpatient admissions under Medicaid and the annual percentages of total inpatient admissions under Medicaid for every other hospital located in the county in which the hospital is located. Individuals and entities wishing to submit comments on the hospital’s request should review the DATES and ADDRESSES sections above and state whether or not they are in the community in which the hospital is located. III. Hospital Exception Request emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES these were examples only and that we will not restrict the type of community input that may be submitted (76 FR 74522). If we receive timely comments from the community, we will notify the hospital, and the hospital has 30 days after such notice to submit a rebuttal statement (§ 411.362(c)(5)(ii)). A request for an exception to the facility expansion prohibition is considered complete and ready for CMS review if no comments from the community are received by the close of the 30-day comment period. If we receive timely comments from the community, we consider the request to be complete 30 days after the hospital is notified of the comments. If we grant the request for an exception to the prohibition on expansion of facility capacity, the expansion may occur only in facilities on the hospital’s main campus and may not result in the number of operating rooms, procedure rooms, and beds for which the hospital is licensed exceeding 200 percent of the hospital’s baseline number of operating rooms, procedure rooms, and beds (§ 411.362(c)(6)). Our decision to grant or deny a hospital’s request for an exception to the prohibition on expansion of facility capacity will be published in the Federal Register in accordance with our regulations at § 411.362(c)(7). This document does not impose information collection and recordkeeping requirements. Consequently, it need not be reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget under the authority of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 35). As permitted by section 1877(i)(3) of the Act and our regulations at § 411.362(c), the following physicianowned hospital has requested an exception to the prohibition on expansion of facility capacity: Name of Facility: Lake Pointe Medical Center Location: 6800 Scenic Drive, Rowlett, Texas 75088–4552 (Rockwall County) Basis for Exception Request: High Medicaid Facility We seek comments on this request from individuals and entities in the community in which the hospital is located. We encourage interested parties to review the hospital’s request, which is posted on the CMS Web site at: http://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Fraudand-Abuse/PhysicianSelfReferral/ Physician_Owned_Hospitals.html. We especially welcome comments regarding whether the hospital qualifies as a ‘‘high Medicaid facility.’’ Under § 411.362(c)(3), a ‘‘high Medicaid facility’’ is a hospital that satisfies all of the following criteria: • The hospital is not the sole hospital in the county in which it is located; • The hospital does not discriminate against beneficiaries of Federal health VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:00 May 09, 2014 Jkt 232001 IV.

OMB No.: 0970–0428. Description: Under section 471(a)(16) of title IV–E of the Social Security Act (the Act), to be eligible for payments, states and tribes must have an approved title IV–E plan that provides for the development of a case plan for each child for whom the State or Tribe receives foster care maintenance payments and that provides a case review system that meets the requirements in section 475(5) and 475(6) of the Act. The case review system assures that each child has a case plan designed to achieve placement in a safe setting that is the least restrictive (most family-like) setting available and in close proximity to the child’s parental home, consistent with the best interest and special needs of the child. Through these requirements, States and Tribes also comply, in part, with title IV–B section 422(b) of the Act, which assures certain protections for children in foster care. The case plan is a written document that provides a narrative description of the child-specific program of care. Federal regulations at 45 CFR 1356.21(g) and section 475(1) of the Act delineate the specific information that should be addressed in the case plan. The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) does not specify a recordkeeping format for the case plan nor does ACF require submission of the document to the Federal government. Case plan information is recorded in a format developed and maintained by the State or Tribal child welfare agency.

Proposed Projects:

    Title: Multistate Financial Institution Data Match with Federally 
Assisted State Transmitted Levy (FIDM/FAST Levy)
    OMB No.: 0970-0196.
    Description: State child support enforcement agencies are required 
to attach and seize an obligor's assets in financial institutions to 
satisfy any current support obligation and arrearage when the obligor 
owes past-due support. To locate an obligor's account, state child 
support enforcement agencies are required to enter into data matching 
agreements with financial institutions doing business in their state. 
State child support enforcement agencies use the results of data 
matches to secure information leading to the enforcement of the support 
obligation. The federal Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) 
assists states to fulfill the data matching requirements with 
multistate financial institutions by facilitating matching through the 
Federal Parent Locator Service's Multistate Financial Institution Data 
Match (MSFIDM) program.
    To further assist states to meet this statutory requirement, the 
OCSE enhanced the Federal Parent Locator Service by developing the 
Federally Assisted State Transmitted (FAST) Levy application that 
provides a secure and automated method of collecting and disseminating 
electronic levy notices between state child support enforcement 
agencies and multistate financial institutions. This increases states' 
efficiency to secure financial assets.
    The FIDM/FAST Levy information collection activities are authorized 
by: 42 U.S.C. 652(l) which authorizes OCSE, through the Federal Parent 
Locator Service, to aid state child support agencies and financial 
institutions doing business in two or more states in reaching 
agreements regarding the receipt from financial institutions, and the 
transfer to the state child support agencies, of information pertaining 
to the location of accounts held by obligors who owe past-due support; 
42 U.S.C. 666 (a)(2) and (c)(1)(G)(ii) which require state child 
support agencies in cases in which there is an arrearage to establish 
procedures to secure assets to satisfy any current support obligation 
and the

arrearage by attaching and seizing assets of the obligor held in 
financial institutions; (2) 42 U.S.C. 666(a)(17), which requires state 
child support agencies to establish procedures under which the state 
child support agencies shall enter into agreements with financial 
institutions doing business in the state to develop and operate, in 
coordination with financial institutions and the Federal Parent Locator 
Service (in the case of financial institutions doing business in two or 
more states), a data match system, using automated data exchanges to 
the maximum extent feasible, in which a financial institution is 
required to quarterly provide information pertaining to a noncustodial 
parent owing past-due support who maintains an account at the 
institution; and (ii) in response to a notice of lien or levy, encumber 
or surrender, assets held; (3) 42 U.S.C. 652(a)(7), which requires OCSE 
to provide technical assistance to state child support enforcement 
agencies to help them establish effective systems for collecting child 
and spousal support; and (4) 45 CFR 303.7(a)(5), which requires state 
child support agencies to transmit requests for information and provide 
requested information electronically to the greatest extent possible.
    Respondents: Multistate Financial Institutions and State Child 
Support Agencies.
