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.

Type of Information Collection Request: Extension of a currently approved collection; Title of Information Collection: Indirect Medical Education and Supporting Regulations; Use: Section 1886(d)(5)(B) of the Social Security Act requires additional payments to be made under the Medicare Prospective Payment System (PPS) for the indirect medical educational costs a hospital incurs in connection with interns and residents (IRs) in approved teaching programs. In addition, Title 42, Part 413, sections 75 VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:39 Jul 18, 2016 Jkt 238001 through 83 implement section 1886(d) of the Act by establishing the methodology for Medicare payment of the cost of direct graduate medical educational activities. These payments, which are adjustments (add-ons) to other payments made to a hospital under PPS, are largely determined by the number of full-time equivalent (FTE) IRs that work at a hospital during its cost reporting period. In Federal fiscal year (FY) 2015, the estimated Medicare program payments for indirect medical education (IME) costs amounted to $8.38 billion. Medicare program payments for direct graduate medical education (GME) are also based upon the number of FTE–IRs that work at a hospital. In FY 2015, the estimated Medicare program payments for GME costs amounted to $3.1 billion.
