The Panel’s charter was most recently renewed on January 21, 2015, and will terminate on January 21, 2017 unless renewed by appropriate action. Under the current charter, the APOE will advise the Secretary and the Administrator on optimal strategies for the following: • Developing and implementing education and outreach programs for individuals enrolled in, or eligible for, Medicare, Medicaid, and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), or coverage available through the Health Insurance Marketplace. • Enhancing the federal government’s effectiveness in informing Health Insurance Marketplace, Medicare, Medicaid, and CHIP consumers, issuers, providers, and stakeholders, through education and outreach programs, on issues regarding these programs, including the appropriate use of publicprivate partnerships to leverage the resources of the private sector in educating beneficiaries, providers, and stakeholders. • Expanding outreach to vulnerable and underserved communities, including racial and ethnic minorities, in the context of Health Insurance Marketplace, Medicare, Medicaid, and CHIP education programs. • Assembling and sharing an information base of ‘‘best practices’’ for helping consumers evaluate health coverage options.

ACTION: Notice. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is issuing an order under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the FD&C Act) permanently debarring Mirwaiss Aminzada from providing services in any capacity to a person that has an approved or pending drug product application. FDA bases this order on a finding that Mr. Aminzada was convicted of a felony under Federal law for conduct relating to the regulation of a drug product. Mr. Aminzada was given notice of the proposed permanent debarment and an opportunity to request a hearing within the timeframe prescribed by regulation. Mr. Aminzada failed to request a hearing. Mr. Aminzada’s failure to request a hearing constitutes a waiver of his right to a hearing concerning this action. DATES: This order is effective June 22, 2015. SUMMARY: Submit applications for termination of debarment to the Division of Dockets Management (HFA– 305), Food and Drug Administration, 5630 Fishers Lane, Rm. 1061, Rockville, MD 20852.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: ADDRESSES: I. Background Section 306(a)(2)(B) of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 335a(a)(2)(B)) requires debarment of an individual if FDA finds that the individual has been convicted of a felony under Federal law for conduct relating to the regulation of any drug product under the FD&C Act. On June 10, 2014, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia entered judgment against Mr. Aminzada for one count of introducing misbranded drugs into interstate commerce with intent to defraud or mislead, in violation of sections 301(a) and 303(a)(2) of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 331(a) and 333(a)(2)). FDA’s finding that debarment is appropriate is based on the felony conviction referenced herein. The E:\FR\FM\22JNN1.SGM 22JNN1
