SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DATES: emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES Proposed Project Medical Expenditure Panel Survey— Insurance Component Employer-sponsored health insurance is the source of coverage for 78 million current and former workers, plus many of their family members, and is a cornerstone of the U.S. health care system. The Medical Expenditure Panel Survey—Insurance Component (MEPSIC) measures on an annual basis the extent, cost, and coverage of employersponsored health insurance. These statistics are produced at the National, State, and sub-State (metropolitan area) level for private industry. Statistics are also produced for State and Local governments. The MEPS-IC was last approved by OMB on November 21, 2013 and will expire on November 30th, 2016. The OMB control number for the MEPSIC is 0935-0110. All of the supporting documents for the current MEPS-IC can be downloaded from OMB’s Web site at http:// www.reginfo.gov/public/do/ PRAViewDocument?ref_nbr=2013100935-001. In order to ensure that the MEPS-IC is able to capture important changes in the employer-sponsored health insurance market due to the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), AHRQ will field a longitudinal survey in 2015 to include a sample of 5,000 small private sector employers that responded to the 2014 MEPS-IC. The OMB clearance that was approved on November 21, 2013 included the 2014 longitudinal survey, a survey of 3,000 respondents to the 2013 MEPS-IC, but did not include the 2015 longitudinal survey because the sample size was not finalized. This submission is for the 2015 longitudinal survey only; there are no other changes. This research has the following goals: VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:32 Feb 17, 2015 Jkt 235001 (1) To provide data for Federal policymakers evaluating the effects of National and State health care reforms. (2) To provide descriptive data on the current employer-sponsored health insurance system and data for modeling the differential impacts of proposed health policy initiatives. (3) To supply critical State and National estimates of health insurance spending for the National Health Accounts and Gross Domestic Product. (4) To support evaluation of the impact on health insurance offered by small employers due to the implementation of Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP) exchanges under the PPACA, through the addition of a longitudinal component to the sample. The MEPS-IC is conducted pursuant to AHRQ’ s statutory authority to conduct surveys to collect data on the cost, use and quality of health care, including the types and costs of private insurance. 42 U.S.C. 299b–2(a). Method of Collection To achieve the goals of this project the following data collections for both private sector and state and local government employers will be implemented: (1) Prescreener Questionnaire—The purpose of the Prescreener Questionnaire, which is collected via telephone, varies depending on the insurance status of the establishment contacted. (Establishment is defined as a single, physical location in the private sector and a governmental unit in state and local governments.) For establishments that do not offer health insurance to their employees, the prescreener is used to collect basic information such as number of employees. Collection is completed for these establishments through this telephone call. For establishments that do offer health insurance, contact name and address information is collected that is used for the mailout of the establishment and plan questionnaires. Obtaining this contact information helps ensure that the questionnaires are directed to the person in the establishment best equipped to complete them. (2) Establishment Questionnaire—The purpose of the mailed Establishment Questionnaire is to obtain general information from employers that provide health insurance to their employees. Information, such as total active enrollment in health insurance, PO 00000 Frm 00065 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 8653 other employee benefits, demographic characteristics of employees, and retiree health insurance, is collected through the establishment questionnaire. (3) Plan Questionnaire—The purpose of the mailed Plan Questionnaire is to collect plan-specific information on each plan (up to four plans) offered by establishments that provide health insurance to their employees. This questionnaire obtains information on total premiums, employer and employee contributions to the premium, and plan enrollment for each type of coverage offered—single, employee-plus-one, and family—within a plan. It also asks for information on deductibles, copays, and other plan characteristics. (4) Longitudinal Sample (LS)—For 2015, an additional sample of small employers (those with 100 or fewer employees) will be included in the collection. The LS will consist of 5,000 small, private-sector employers that responded to the 2014 MEPS–IC regular survey. These employers will be surveyed again in 2015—using the same collection methods as the regular survey—in order to track changes in their health insurance offerings, characteristics, and costs. The primary objective of the MEPS– IC is to collect information on employersponsored health insurance. Such information is needed in order to provide the tools for Federal, State, and academic researchers to evaluate current and proposed health policies and to support the production of important statistical measures for other Federal agencies. Estimated Annual Respondent Burden Exhibit 1 shows the estimated annualized burden hours for the respondent’s time to provide the requested data for the 2015 longitudinal survey. The Prescreener questionnaire will be completed by 4,300 respondents and takes about 5 minutes to complete. The Establishment questionnaire will be completed by 2,054 respondents and takes about 23 minutes to complete. The Plan questionnaire will be completed by 2,054 respondents and will require an average of 1.4 responses per respondent. Each Plan questionnaire takes about 11 minutes to complete. The total burden hours are estimated to be 1,686 hours. Exhibit 2 shows the estimated annualized cost burden associated with the respondents’ time to participate in this data collection. The annualized cost burden is estimated to be $51,322.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Proposed Project

Medical Expenditure Panel Survey--Insurance Component

    Employer-sponsored health insurance is the source of coverage for 
78 million current and former workers, plus many of their family 
members, and is a cornerstone of the U.S. health care system. The 
Medical Expenditure Panel Survey--Insurance Component (MEPS-IC) 
measures on an annual basis the extent, cost, and coverage of employer-
sponsored health insurance. These statistics are produced at the 
National, State, and sub-State (metropolitan area) level for private 
industry. Statistics are also produced for State and Local governments. 
The MEPS-IC was last approved by OMB on November 21, 2013 and will 
expire on November 30th, 2016. The OMB control number for the MEPSIC is 
0935-0110. All of the supporting documents for the current MEPS-IC can 
be downloaded from OMB's Web site at http://www.reginfo.gov/public/do/PRAViewDocument?ref_nbr=201310-0935-001.
    In order to ensure that the MEPS-IC is able to capture important 
changes in the employer-sponsored health insurance market due to the 
implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act 
(PPACA), AHRQ will field a longitudinal survey in 2015 to include a 
sample of 5,000 small private sector employers that responded to the 
2014 MEPS-IC. The OMB clearance that was approved on November 21, 2013 
included the 2014 longitudinal survey, a survey of 3,000 respondents to 
the 2013 MEPS-IC, but did not include the 2015 longitudinal survey 
because the sample size was not finalized. This submission is for the 
2015 longitudinal survey only; there are no other changes.
    This research has the following goals:
    (1) To provide data for Federal policymakers evaluating the effects 
of National and State health care reforms.
    (2) To provide descriptive data on the current employer-sponsored 
health insurance system and data for modeling the differential impacts 
of proposed health policy initiatives.
    (3) To supply critical State and National estimates of health 
insurance spending for the National Health Accounts and Gross Domestic 
Product.
    (4) To support evaluation of the impact on health insurance offered 
by small employers due to the implementation of Small Business Health 
Options Program (SHOP) exchanges under the PPACA, through the addition 
of a longitudinal component to the sample.
    The MEPS-IC is conducted pursuant to AHRQ' s statutory authority to 
conduct surveys to collect data on the cost, use and quality of health 
care, including the types and costs of private insurance. 42 U.S.C. 
299b-2(a).

Method of Collection

    To achieve the goals of this project the following data collections 
for both private sector and state and local government employers will 
be implemented:
    (1) Prescreener Questionnaire--The purpose of the Prescreener 
Questionnaire, which is collected via telephone, varies depending on 
the insurance status of the establishment contacted. (Establishment is 
defined as a single, physical location in the private sector and a 
governmental unit in state and local governments.) For establishments 
that do not offer health insurance to their employees, the prescreener 
is used to collect basic information such as number of employees. 
Collection is completed for these establishments through this telephone 
call. For establishments that do offer health insurance, contact name 
and address information is collected that is used for the mailout of 
the establishment and plan questionnaires. Obtaining this contact 
information helps ensure that the questionnaires are directed to the 
person in the establishment best equipped to complete them.
    (2) Establishment Questionnaire--The purpose of the mailed 
Establishment Questionnaire is to obtain general information from 
employers that provide health insurance to their employees. 
Information, such as total active enrollment in health insurance, other 
employee benefits, demographic characteristics of employees, and 
retiree health insurance, is collected through the establishment 
questionnaire.
    (3) Plan Questionnaire--The purpose of the mailed Plan 
Questionnaire is to collect plan-specific information on each plan (up 
to four plans) offered by establishments that provide health insurance 
to their employees. This questionnaire obtains information on total 
premiums, employer and employee contributions to the premium, and plan 
enrollment for each type of coverage offered--single, employee-plus-
one, and family--within a plan. It also asks for information on 
deductibles, copays, and other plan characteristics.
    (4) Longitudinal Sample (LS)--For 2015, an additional sample of 
small employers (those with 100 or fewer employees) will be included in 
the collection. The LS will consist of 5,000 small, private-sector 
employers that responded to the 2014 MEPS-IC regular survey. These 
employers will be surveyed again in 2015--using the same collection 
methods as the regular survey--in order to track changes in their 
health insurance offerings, characteristics, and costs.
    The primary objective of the MEPS-IC is to collect information on 
employer-sponsored health insurance. Such information is needed in 
order to provide the tools for Federal, State, and academic researchers 
to evaluate current and proposed health policies and to support the 
production of important statistical measures for other Federal 
agencies.

Estimated Annual Respondent Burden

    Exhibit 1 shows the estimated annualized burden hours for the 
respondent's time to provide the requested data for the 2015 
longitudinal survey. The Prescreener questionnaire will be completed by 
4,300 respondents and takes about 5 minutes to complete. The 
Establishment questionnaire will be completed by 2,054 respondents and 
takes about 23 minutes to complete. The Plan questionnaire will be 
completed by 2,054 respondents and will require an average of 1.4 
responses per respondent. Each Plan questionnaire takes about 11 
minutes to complete. The total burden hours are estimated to be 1,686 
hours.
    Exhibit 2 shows the estimated annualized cost burden associated 
with the respondents' time to participate in this data collection. The 
annualized cost burden is estimated to be $51,322.
