CMS–10148 HIPAA Administrative Simplification Complaint Form 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 PO 00000 Frm 00055 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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: Reinstatement with change of a previously approved collection; Title of Information Collection: HIPAA Administrative Simplification Complaint Form; Use: The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) became law in 1996 (Pub. L. 104–191). Subtitle F of Title II of HIPAA, titled ‘‘Administrative Simplification,’’ (A.S.) requires the Secretary of HHS to adopt national standards for certain information-related activities of the health care industry.

Transactions, Code Sets, Identifiers has been delegated to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). This updated information collection will be used to initiate enforcement actions. This reinstatement request clarifies the removal of the HIPAA Security complaint category. Specifically, the information collection revisions clarify the ‘‘Identify the HIPAA Non-Privacy/ Security complaint category’’ section of the complaint form. In this section, complainants are given an opportunity to check the ‘‘Unique Identifiers’’ and ‘‘Operating Rules’’ option to additionally categorize the type of HIPAA complaint being filed. The revised form now includes an option for identifying Unique Identifier and Operating Rules complaints. It also requests email information about filed against entities, if available.

for travel in the conterminous 48 United States; in the Joint Travel 
Regulation for travel in Alaska, Hawaii, the Commonwealth of Puerto 
Rico, and territories and possessions of the United States; and in the 
Department of State Standardized Regulations, section 925, ``Maximum 
Travel Per Diem Allowances for Foreign Areas.'' The burden generated by 
this coverage is in the form of the contractor preparing a 
justification whenever a higher actual expense reimbursement method is 
used. A notice was published in the Federal Register at 81 FR 13368 on 
March 14, 2016.
