VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:43 Mar 28, 2016 Jkt 238001 Notice. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is announcing an opportunity for the public to comment on an information collection concerning CMS’ Healthy Indiana Program (HIP) 2.0 Beneficiaries Survey. We are also announcing that the proposed information collection had been submitted to OMB and was approved under control number 0938– 1300 through September 30, 2016. In accordance with the implementing regulations of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) at 5 CFR 1320.13, our information collection request (ICR) was submitted to OMB for emergency processing. We requested emergency review under 5 CFR 1320.13(a)(2)(i) because public harm is reasonably likely to result if the normal clearance procedures were followed. Following the regular PRA clearance process would jeopardize the timely completion of CMS’ evaluation of the State’s upcoming non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) waiver and other important waivers. Most importantly, it would potentially cause significant harm by depriving Medicaid beneficiaries—especially those affected by the NEMT waiver—of appropriate medical services and needed care. Although we have already received OMB approval to test and develop the survey instruments, we are soliciting public comment during the testing and development phase to meet the conditions of OMB’s Terms of Clearance. Importantly, CMS will provide the public with another opportunity to comment, via a 30-day public comment period, prior to the implementation phase of this effort. Under the PRA, federal agencies are required to publish notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed ICR. Interested persons are invited to send comments regarding our burden estimates or any other aspect of this ICR, including any of the following subjects: (1) The necessity and utility of the proposed ICR for the proper performance of the agency’s functions; (2) the accuracy of the estimated burden; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology to minimize the information collection burden.

information collection had been submitted to OMB and was approved under

submitted to OMB for emergency processing. We requested emergency 
review under 5 CFR 1320.13(a)(2)(i) because public harm is reasonably 
likely to result if the normal clearance procedures were followed.
    Following the regular PRA clearance process would jeopardize the 
timely completion of CMS' evaluation of the State's upcoming non-

waivers. Most importantly, it would potentially cause significant harm 
by depriving Medicaid beneficiaries--especially those affected by the 
NEMT waiver--of appropriate medical services and needed care.

the survey instruments, we are soliciting public comment during the

are invited to send comments regarding our burden estimates or any 
other aspect of this ICR, including any of the following subjects: (1) 
The necessity and utility of the proposed ICR for the proper 
performance of the agency's functions; (2) the accuracy of the 
estimated burden; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity
