CMS–359/360 Comprehensive Outpatient Rehabilitation Facility (CORF) Eligibility and Survey Forms and Supporting Regulations 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. 1. Type of Information Collection Request: Extension of a currently approved information collection; Title of Information Collection: Comprehensive Outpatient Rehabilitation Facility (CORF) Eligibility and Survey Forms and Supporting Regulations; Use: The form CMS–359 is used as the application for health care providers seeking to participate in the Medicare program as a Comprehensive Outpatient Rehabilitation Facility (CORF). This form initiates the process for facilities to become certified as a CORF and it provides the CMS Regional Office State Survey Agency staff identifying information regarding the applicant that is stored in the Automated Survey Processing Environment (ASPEN) system. The form CMS–360 is a survey tool used by the State Survey Agencies to record information in order to determine a provider’s compliance with the CORF Conditions of Participation (CoPs) and to report this information to the Federal government. The form includes basic information on the CoP requirements, check boxes to indicate the level of compliance, and a section for recording notes. We have the responsibility and authority for certification decisions which are based on provider compliance with the CoPs and this form supports this process.
