Information needed to monitor the State’s performance as well as the ICF/ IID program in general, is available to CMS only through the use of information abstracted from the survey report form.

(For policy questions regarding this collection contact Melissa Rice at 410–786–3270.) 2. Type of Information Collection Request: Revision of a currently approved collection; Title of Information Collection: Conditions for Certification for Rural Health Clinics; Use: The Rural Health Clinic (RHC) conditions of certification are based on criteria prescribed in law and are designed to ensure that each facility has a properly trained staff to provide appropriate care and to assure a safe physical environment for patients. We use these conditions of participation to certify RHCs wishing to participate in the Medicare program. These requirements are similar in intent to standards developed by industry organizations such as the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Hospitals, and the National League of Nursing and the American Public Association and merely reflect accepted standards of management and care to which rural health clinics must adhere.

(For policy questions regarding this collection contact Jacqueline Leach at 410–786–4282.) 3. Type of Information Collection Request: New collection (Request for a new OMB control number); Title of Information Collection: Three-Year Network Adequacy Review for Medicare Advantage Organizations; Use: The CMS regulations at 42 CFR 422.112(a)(1)(i) and § 422.114(a)(3)(ii) require that all Medicare Advantage organizations (MAOs) offering coordinated care plans (e.g., HMO, PPO) or other networkbased plans (e.g., network-based PFFS, network-based MSA, section 1876 cost plan) maintain a network of appropriate providers that is sufficient to provide adequate access to covered services to meet the needs of the population served. To enforce this requirement, CMS has developed network adequacy criteria, which sets forth the minimum number of providers and maximum travel time and distance from enrollees to providers, for each provider specialty type in each county in the United States and its territories. MAOs must be in compliance with the current CMS network adequacy criteria. This proposed collection of information is essential to appropriate and timely compliance monitoring by CMS, in order to ensure that all active MAO contracts offering network-based plans maintain an adequate network. Currently, CMS verifies that MAOs are compliant with the current CMS network adequacy criteria by performing a contract-level network review, which occurs when CMS requests that an MAO upload provider and facility Health Service Delivery (HSD) tables for a given contract to the Health Plan Management System (HPMS). If an MAO does not have its contract-level network formally reviewed by CMS after the initial contract application process, then there is no CMS requirement for a network adequacy review unless one of the above listed triggering events occurs. Therefore, CMS is proposing this collection of information in order to improve monitoring of MAOs’ network adequacy. This collection of information requires the uploading of HSD tables to the Network Management Module (NMM) in HPMS for any contract that has not had an entire network review performed by CMS in the previous three years of contract operation. The collection process will occur at the contract level for each MAO that qualifies, and CMS will assess each contract against the current CMS network adequacy criteria. Each time an MAO’s contract undergoes an entire PO 00000 Frm 00036 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 network review during any of the triggering events listed on page one, the three-year anniversary date for that contract will be reset, and CMS will maintain an HPMS report to keep track of this date for every active networkbased contract.

    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 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

(RHC) conditions of certification are based on criteria prescribed in 
law and are designed to ensure that each facility has a properly 
trained staff to provide appropriate care and to assure a safe physical 
environment for patients. We use these conditions of participation to 
certify RHCs wishing to participate in the Medicare program. These 
requirements are similar in intent to standards developed by industry

    3. Type of Information Collection Request: New collection (Request 
for a new OMB control number); Title of Information Collection: Three-
Year Network Adequacy Review for Medicare Advantage Organizations; Use: 
The CMS regulations at 42 CFR 422.112(a)(1)(i) and Sec.  
422.114(a)(3)(ii) require that all Medicare Advantage organizations 
(MAOs) offering coordinated care plans (e.g., HMO, PPO) or other 
network-based plans (e.g., network-based PFFS, network-based MSA, 
section 1876 cost plan) maintain a network of appropriate providers 
that is sufficient to provide adequate access to covered services to 
meet the needs of the population served. To enforce this requirement, 
CMS has developed network adequacy criteria, which sets forth the 
minimum number of providers and maximum travel time and distance from 
enrollees to providers, for each provider specialty type in each county 
in the United States and its territories. MAOs must be in compliance 
with the current CMS network adequacy criteria. This proposed 
collection of information is essential to appropriate and timely 
compliance monitoring by CMS, in order to ensure that all active MAO 
contracts offering network-based plans maintain an adequate network. 
Currently, CMS verifies that MAOs are compliant with the current CMS 
network adequacy criteria by performing a contract-level network

for that contract will be reset, and CMS will maintain an HPMS report 
to keep track of this date for every active network-based contract.
