SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 
(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 (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)) requires 
federal agencies to publish a 30-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 that 
summarizes the following proposed collection(s) of information for 
public comment:
    1. Type of Information Collection Request: Extension of a currently 
approved collection; Title of Information Collection: Paid Feeding 
Assistants in Long-Term Care Facilities and Supporting Regulations; 
Use: In accordance with 42 CFR part 483, long-term care facilities are 
permitted to use paid feeding assistants to supplement the services of 
certified nurse aides. If facilities choose this option, feeding 
assistants must complete a training program. Nursing home providers are 
expected to maintain a record of all individuals used by the facility 
as paid feeding assistants. Form Number: CMS-10053 (OMB control number: 
0938-0916); Frequency: Occasionally; Affected Public: Private Sector--
Business or other for-profit and not-for-profit institutions; Number of 
Respondents: 4,250; Total Annual Responses: 4,250; Total Annual Hours: 
25,500. (For policy questions regarding this collection contact Karen 
Tritz at 410-786-8021.)
    2. Type of Information Collection Request: Extension of a currently 
approved collection; Title of Information Collection: Collection 
Requirements for Compendia for Determination of Medically-accepted 
Indications for Off-label Uses of Drugs and Biologicals in an Anti-
cancer Chemotherapeutic Regimen Use: Section 182(b) of the Medicare 
Improvement of Patients and Providers Act (MIPPA) amended section 
1861(t)(2)(B) of the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. 1395x(t)(2)(B)) by 
adding at the end the following new sentence: `On and after January 1, 
2010, no compendia may be included on the list of compendia under this 
subparagraph unless the compendia has a publicly transparent process 
for evaluating therapies and for identifying potential conflicts of 
interest.' We believe that the implementation of this statutory 
provision that compendia have a ``publicly transparent process for 
evaluating therapies and for identifying potential conflicts of 
interests'' is best accomplished by amending 42 CFR 414.930 to include 
the MIPPA requirements and by defining the key components of publicly 
transparent processes for evaluating therapies and for identifying 
potential conflicts of interests.
    All currently listed compendia will be required to comply with 
these provisions, as of January 1, 2010, to remain on the list of 
recognized compendia. In addition, any compendium that is the subject 
of a

[[Page 49985]]

future request for inclusion on the list of recognized compendia will 
be required to comply with these provisions. No compendium can be on 
the list if it does not fully meet the standard described in section 
1861(t)(2)(B) of the Act, as revised by section 182(b) of the MIPPA.

Annually; Affected Public: Business and other for-profits and Not-for-
profit institutions; Number of Respondents: 845; Total Annual
