Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 153 / Friday, August 8, 2014 / Notices extension or reinstatement of an existing collection of information, before submitting the collection to OMB for approval. To comply with this requirement, CMS is publishing this notice. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Information Collection 1. Type of Information Collection Request: New collection (Request for a new OMB control number); Title of Information Collection: Quarterly Medicaid and CHIP Budget and Expenditure Reporting for the Medical Assistance Program, Administration and CHIP; Use: At the request of OMB, this action would consolidate form CMS–21 and –21B (OMB control number: 0938– 0731), –37 (OMB control number: 0938– 0101), and –64 (OMB control number: 0938–0067) into one new information collection request. This action also revises CMS–37 and –67 while CMS–21 and –21B remain unchanged. Form CMS–21 and –21B provide CMS with the information necessary to issue quarterly grant awards, monitor current year expenditure levels, determine the allowability of state claims for reimbursement, develop Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) financial management information, provide for state reporting of waiver expenditures, and ensure that the federally established allotment is not exceeded. They are also necessary in the redistribution and reallocation of unspent funds over the federally mandated timeframes. Form CMS–37 due dates are November 15, February 15, May 15 and August 15 of each fiscal year. While all submissions represent equally important components of the grant award cycle, the May and November submissions are particularly significant for budget formulation. The November submission introduces a new fiscal year to the budget cycle and serves as the basis for the formulation of the Medicaid portion of the President’s Budget, which is presented to Congress in January. The February and August submissions are used primarily for budget execution in providing interim updates to our Office of Financial Management, the Department of Health and Human Services, the Office of Management and Budget and Congress depending on the scheduling of the national budget review process in a given fiscal year. The submissions provide us with base information necessary to track current year obligations and expenditures in relation to the current year appropriation and to notify senior managers of any impending surpluses or deficits. VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:51 Aug 07, 2014 Jkt 232001 Form CMS–64 is used to issue quarterly grant awards, monitor current year expenditure levels, determine the allowability of state claims for reimbursement, develop Medicaid financial management information provide for state reporting of waiver expenditures, ensure that the federallyestablished limit is not exceeded for HCBS waivers, and to allow for the implementation of the Assignment of Rights and Part A and Part B Premium (i.e., accounting for overdue Part A and Part B Premiums under state buy-in agreements)—Billing Offsets.

Information Collection Request Title: Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC) Uniform Data System (UDS). OMB No. 0915–0193—Revision. Abstract: The Uniform Data System (UDS) is the Bureau of Primary Health Care’s (BPHC’s) annual reporting system for HRSA-supported health centers. The UDS includes reporting requirements for Health Center Program look-alikes and grantees of the following programs: the Community Health Center program, the Migrant Health Center program, the Health Care for the Homeless program, and the Public Housing Primary Care program. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: HRSA collects UDS data which are used to ensure compliance with legislative and regulatory requirements, improve health center performance and operations, and report overall program accomplishments. The data help to identify trends over time, enabling HRSA to establish or expand targeted programs and identify effective services and interventions to improve the health of underserved communities and vulnerable populations. UDS data are compared with national healthrelated data, including the National Health Interview Survey and National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, to review differences between the health center patient populations and the U.S. population at large and those individuals and families who rely on the health care safety net for primary care. UDS data also inform Health Center programs, partners, and communities about the patients served by Health Centers. To meet these objectives, BPHC requires a core set of data collected annually. The UDS data collection for 2015 will be revised in two ways. A new line will be added to identify patients that are dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid, and the existing diabetes clinical measure will be streamlined to align with the Healthy People 2020 national benchmark. Specifically, health centers will no longer report three categories, Hemoglobin A1c (Hba1c) less than 8 E:\FR\FM\08AUN1.SGM 08AUN1 46444 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 153 / Friday, August 8, 2014 / Notices percent; Hba1c greater than or equal to 8 percent and less than or equal to 9 percent; and Hba1c greater than 9 percent. Health centers will report one category, Hba1c greater than 9 percent. Likely Respondents: The respondents will be HRSA BPHC Health Center Program grantees and look-alikes. Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide the information requested. This includes the time needed to review instructions; to develop, acquire, install and utilize technology and systems for the purpose of collecting, validating and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; to train personnel and to be able to respond to Number of respondents Form name Universal Report ..................................................................
