CMS-10527 Annual Eligibility Redetermination, Product Discontinuation 
and Renewal Notices

    Under the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520), federal agencies must obtain 
approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for each 
collection of information they conduct or sponsor. The term 
``collection of information'' is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) and 5 CFR 
1320.3(c) and includes agency requests or requirements that members of 
the public submit reports, keep records, or provide information to a 
third party. Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA requires federal agencies 
to publish a 60-day notice in the Federal Register concerning each 
proposed collection of information, including each proposed 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.

Information Collection

    1. Type of Information Collection Request: Extension of a currently 
approved collection; Title of Information Collection: Annual 
Eligibility Redetermination, Product Discontinuation and Renewal 
Notices; Use: Section 1411(f)(1)(B) of the Affordable Care Act directs 
the Secretary of Health and Human Services (the Secretary) to establish 
procedures to redetermine the eligibility of individuals on a periodic 
basis in appropriate circumstances. Section 1321(a) of the Affordable 
Care Act provides authority for the Secretary to establish standards 
and regulations to implement the statutory requirements related to 
Exchanges, QHPs and other components of title I of the Affordable Care 
Act. Under section 2703 of the PHS Act, as added by the Affordable Care 
Act, and sections 2712 and 2741 of the PHS Act, enacted by the Health 
Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, health insurance 
issuers in the group and individual markets must guarantee the 
renewability of coverage unless an exception applies.
    The final rule ``Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act; Annual 
Eligibility Redeterminations for Exchange Participation and Insurance 
Affordability Programs; Health Insurance Issuer Standards Under the 
Affordable Care Act, Including Standards Related to Exchanges'' (79 FR 
52994), provides that an Exchange may choose to conduct the annual 
redetermination process for a plan year (1) in accordance with the 
existing procedures described in 45 CFR 155.335; (2) in accordance with 
procedures described in guidance issued by the Secretary for the 
coverage year; or (3) using an alternative proposed by the Exchange and 
approved by the Secretary. The guidance document ``Guidance on Annual 
Redeterminations for Coverage for 2015'' contains the procedures that 
the Secretary is specifying for the 2015 coverage year, as noted in (2) 
above. These procedures will be adopted by the Federally-facilitated 
Exchange. Under this option, the Exchange will provide three notices. 
These notices may be combined.
    The final rule also amends the requirements for product renewal and 
re-enrollment (or non-renewal) notices to be sent by Qualified Health 
Plan (QHP) issuers in the Exchanges and specifies content for these 
notices. The accompanying guidance document ``Form and Manner of 
Notices When Discontinuing or Renewing a Product in the Group or 
Individual Market'' provides standard notices for product 
discontinuation and renewal to be sent by issuers of individual market 
QHPs and issuers in the individual market. Issuers in the small group 
market may use the draft Federal standard small group notices released 
in the June 26, 2014 bulletin ``Draft Standard Notices When 
Discontinuing or Renewing a Product in the Small Group or Individual 
Market,'' or any forms of the notice otherwise permitted by applicable 
laws and regulations. States that are enforcing the Affordable Care Act 
may develop their own standard notices, for product discontinuances, 
renewals, or both, provided the State-developed notices are at least as 
protective as the Federal standard notices. Form Number: CMS-10527; 
Frequency: Annual; Affected Public: Private Sector, State Governments; 
Number of Respondents: 2,945; Number of Responses: 12,224; Total Annual 
Hours: 149,186. (For policy questions regarding this collection,
