Form Number: CMS–838 (OMB control number: 0938– 0600); Frequency: Quarterly; Affected Public: Private sector (Business or other For-profits); Number of Respondents: 52,582; Total Annual Responses: 210,328; Total Annual Hours: 630,984. (For policy questions regarding this collection contact Anita Crosier at 410– 786–0217). 3. Type of Information Collection Request: Extension of a currently approved collection; Title of Information Collection: HIPPA Eligibility Tracking System; Use: Federal law requires that CMS take precautions to minimize the security risk to the federal information system. Federal Information Processing Standards Publication (FIPS PUB) 1( ) 1– 2 Paragraph 11.7—Security and Authentication states that: ‘‘Agencies shall employ risk management techniques to determine the appropriate mix of security controls needed to protect specific data and systems. The selection of controls shall take into account procedures required under applicable laws and regulations.’’ Accordingly, CMS requires that entities who wish to connect to the HETS application via the CMS Extranet and/ or Internet are uniquely identified. CMS is required to verify the identity of the person requesting the Protected Health Information (PHI) and the person’s authority to have access to Medicare eligibility information. Furthermore, CMS requires that trading partners who wish to conduct eligibility transactions on a real-time basis with CMS provide certain assurances as a condition of receiving access to the Medicare eligibility information for the purpose of conducting real-time 270/271 inquiry/ response transactions. Form Number: CMS–10157 (OMB control number: 0938–0960); Frequency: Quarterly; Affected Public: Private sector (Business or other For-profits and Not-For-Profits); Number of Respondents: 2,000; Total Annual Responses: 2,000; Total Annual Hours: 250. (For policy questions regarding this collection contact Rupinder Singh at 410–786–7484). 4. Type of Information Collection Request: Extension of a currently approved collection; Title of Information Collection: Grandfathering Provisions of the Medicare DMEPOS Competitive Bidding Program; Use: The grandfathering process was established in the April 10, 2007 final rule for competitive bidding for rented DME and oxygen and oxygen equipment included under the Medicare DMEPOS VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:39 Jul 18, 2016 Jkt 238001 Competitive Bidding Program. This process only applies to suppliers that rented DME and oxygen and oxygen equipment to beneficiaries who maintain a permanent residence in a CBA before the implementation of the competitive bidding program. The competitive bidding program will require some beneficiaries to change their suppliers. In order to avoid a beneficiary being without medically necessary equipment we felt it necessary to establish this notification process. Form Number: CMS–10309 (OMB control number: 0938–1079); Frequency: Occasionally; Affected Public: Private Sector (Business or other for-profit and Not-for-profit institutions); Number of Respondents: 1,125; Total Annual Responses: 39,998; Total Annual Hours: 4,535.

Collection of Medicaid data and the calculation of the Medicaid Incurred But Not Reported (IBNR) estimate are pertinent to CMS’ financial audit. The Medicaid Report on Payables and Receivables will provide the information needed to calculate the Medicaid IBNR. Failure to collect this information could result in noncompliance with the law. Form Number: CMS–R–199 (OMB Control Number: 0938–0697); Frequency: Yearly; Affected Public: State, Local, or Tribal Governments; Number of Respondents: 56; Total Annual Responses: 56; Total Annual Hours: 392.

The Administration for Community Living/ Administration on Aging (ACL/AoA) is requesting approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to complete data collection associated with the Outcome Evaluation of the Title III– C Nutrition Services Program. ACL is requesting to renew an existing clearance to complete 12 month follow up data collection that was initially approved under OMB Control Number: 0985–0037. The Title III–C Elderly Nutrition Services Program (ENSP) represents a key component of America’s strategy for ensuring that the needs of elderly people are adequately met. The overall evaluation of the Title III–C Program has three broad objectives: (1) To provide information to support program planning, including an analysis of program processes (process evaluation), (2) to develop information about program efficiency and cost issues (cost study), and (3) to assess program effectiveness, as measured by the program’s effects on a variety of important outcomes, including nutrient adequacy, socialization opportunities, health outcomes, and, ultimately, helping elderly people avoid institutionalization (outcome evaluation). The renewal is to complete the data collection related to objective 3. The total burden estimate for the remaining data collection is: 144 hours. The proposed data collection tools may be found on the ACL Web site at: http:// www.aoa.acl.gov/Program_Results/ Program_survey.aspx. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Dated: July 12, 2016.
