Background The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is responsible for administering the Medicare and Medicaid programs and coordination and oversight of private health insurance. Administration and oversight of these programs involves the following: (1) Furnishing information to Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries, health care providers, and the public; and (2) maintaining effective communications with CMS regional offices, state governments, state Medicaid agencies, state survey agencies, various providers of health care, all Medicare contractors that process claims and pay bills, National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC), health insurers, and other stakeholders. To implement the various statutes on which the programs are based, we issue regulations under the authority granted to the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services under sections 1102, 1871, 1902, and related provisions of the Social Security Act (the Act) and Public Health Service Act. We also issue VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:37 Nov 13, 2014 Jkt 235001 various manuals, memoranda, and statements necessary to administer and oversee the programs efficiently. Section 1871(c) of the Act requires that we publish a list of all Medicare manual instructions, interpretive rules, statements of policy, and guidelines of general applicability not issued as regulations at least every 3 months in the Federal Register. II. Format for the Quarterly Issuance Notices This quarterly notice provides only the specific updates that have occurred in the 3-month period along with a hyperlink to the full listing that is available on the CMS Web site or the appropriate data registries that are used as our resources. This information is the most current up-to-date information and will be available earlier than we publish our quarterly notice. We believe the Web site list provides more timely access for beneficiaries, providers, and suppliers. We also believe the Web site offers a more convenient tool for the public to find the full list of qualified providers for these specific services and offers more flexibility and ‘‘real time’’ PO 00000 Frm 00045 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Phone No. (410) (410) (410) (410) (410) (410) (410) (410) (410) (410) (410) (410) (410) (410) (410) (410) 786–1864 786–4481 786–7548 786–7491 786–6877 786–5258 786–6322 786–7861 786–7205 786–7205 786–8564 786–7861 786–7861 786–2064 786–8564 786–6580 accessibility. In addition, many of the Web sites have listservs; that is, the public can subscribe and receive immediate notification of any updates to the Web site. These listservs avoid the need to check the Web site, as notification of updates is automatic and sent to the subscriber as they occur. If assessing a Web site proves to be difficult, the contact person listed can provide information. III.

It offers day-to-day operating instructions, policies, and procedures based on statutes and regulations, guidelines, models, and directives. In 2003, we transformed the CMS Program Manuals into a web user-friendly presentation and renamed it the CMS Online Manual System. Sfmt 4725 E:\FR\FM\14NON1.SGM 14NON1 How to Obtain Manuals The Internet-only Manuals (IOMs) are a replica of the Agency's official record copy. Paper-based manuals are CMS manuals that were officially released in hardcopy. The majority of these manuals were transferred into the Internet-only manual (10M) or retired. Pub 15-1, Pub 15-2 and Pub 45 are exceptions to this rule and are still active paper-based manuals. The remaining paper-based manuals are for reference purposes only. If you notice policy contained in the paper-based manuals that was not transferred to the IOM, send a message via the CMS Feedback tool. Those wishing to subscribe to old versions of CMS manuals should contact the National Technical Information Service, Department of Commerce, 5301 Shawnee Road, Alexandria, VA 22312 Telephone (703605-6050). You can download copies of the listed material free of charge at:==--"-'-'="'-"-'--'-==="'· How to Review Transmittals or Program Memoranda Those wishing to review transmittals and program memoranda can access this information at a local Federal Depository Library (FDL).

We cover implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) for certain clinical indications, as long as information about the procedures is reported to a central registry. Detailed descriptions ofthe covered indications are available in the NCD. In January 2005, CMS established the ICD Abstraction Tool through the Quality Network Exchange (QNet) as a temporary data collection mechanism. On October 27, 2005, CMS announced that the American College of Cardiology's National Cardiovascular Data Registry (ACC-NCDR) lCD Registry satisfies the data reporting requirements in the NCO. Hospitals needed to transition to the ACC-NCDR lCD Registry by April2006. Effective January 27, 2005, to obtain reimbursement, Medicare NCD policy requires that providers implanting ICDs for primary prevention clinical indications (that is, patients without a history of cardiac arrest or spontaneous arrhythmia) report data on each primary prevention ICD procedure. Details of the clinical indications that are covered by Medicare and their respective data reporting requirements are available in the Medicare NCD Manual, which is on the CMS website at 14NON1 A provider can use either of two mechanisms to satisfY the data reporting requirement. Patients may be enrolled either in an Investigational Device Exemption trial studying ICDs as identified by the FDA or in the ACC-NCDR ICD registry. Therefore, for a beneficiary to receive a Medicare-covered ICD implantation for primary prevention, the beneficiary must receive the scan in a facility that participates in the ACC-NCDR ICD registry.

I. Background

    The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is responsible 
for administering the Medicare and Medicaid programs and coordination 
and oversight of private health insurance. Administration and oversight 
of these programs involves the following: (1) Furnishing information to 
Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries, health care providers, and the 
public; and (2) maintaining effective communications with CMS regional 
offices, state governments, state Medicaid agencies, state survey 
agencies, various providers of health care, all Medicare contractors 
that process claims and pay bills, National Association of Insurance 
Commissioners (NAIC), health insurers, and other stakeholders. To 
implement the various statutes on which the programs are based, we 
issue regulations under the authority granted to the Secretary of the 
Department of Health and Human Services under sections 1102, 1871, 
1902, and related provisions of the Social Security Act (the Act) and 
Public Health Service Act. We also issue various manuals, memoranda, 
and statements necessary to administer and oversee the programs 
efficiently.
    Section 1871(c) of the Act requires that we publish a list of all 
Medicare manual instructions, interpretive rules, statements of policy, 
and guidelines of general applicability not issued as regulations at 
least every 3 months in the Federal Register.

II. Format for the Quarterly Issuance Notices

registries that are used as our resources. This information is the most 
current up-to-date information and will be available earlier than we 
publish our quarterly notice. We believe the Web site list provides 
more timely access for beneficiaries, providers, and suppliers. We also 
believe the Web site offers a more convenient tool for the public to 
find the full list of qualified providers for these specific services 
and offers more flexibility and ``real time'' accessibility. In 
addition, many of the Web sites have listservs; that is, the public can 
subscribe and receive immediate notification of any updates to the Web 
site. These listservs avoid the need to check the Web site, as 
notification of updates is automatic and sent to the subscriber as they 
occur. If assessing a Web site proves to be difficult, the contact 
person listed can provide information.

III. How To Use the Notice

    This notice is organized into 15 addenda so that a reader may 
access the subjects published during the quarter covered by the notice 
to determine whether any are of particular interest. We expect this 
notice to be used in concert with previously published notices. Those 
unfamiliar with a description of our Medicare manuals should view the 
manuals at http://www.cms.gov/manuals.
