Burden means the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. This includes the time needed to review instructions; to develop, acquire, install and utilize technology and systems for the purpose of collecting, validating and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; to train personnel and to be able to respond to a collection of information, to search data sources, to complete and review the collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise disclose the information. Proposed Project Measuring Worker Well-being for Total Worker Health—New—National intended to generate data that can be used to validate a worker well-being survey instrument through testing of its psychometric properties. The survey includes questions on five domains of worker well-being including: worker evaluation and experiences with work; workplace physical environment and safety climate; organizational policies and culture; worker health status; and experiences outside of work (external context). For this study, the survey instrument will be programmed into a web-based survey that will be administered online to an existing nationwide survey panel of employed adults (KnowledgePanel®) hosted by our vendor, GfK. Deidentified data will be transmitted securely to RAND, and RAND researchers will analyze the data as a CDC contractor. The survey will be fielded to approximately 1,025 respondents in the GFK panel, and the expected burden per respondent for reading the email and completing the survey is 15 minutes or 0.25 hours of their time. This will be a one-time survey and panelists will not be asked to respond to this survey again in the future. The total estimated burden hours are 385 for reading the recruitment email and responding to the survey. There are no costs to the respondent other than their time. Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH)—Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description As described in the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (PL 91– 596), the mission of NIOSH is to conduct research and investigations on work-related disease and injury and to disseminate information for preventing identified workplace hazards (Sections 20 (a) (1) and (d), Attachment 1). NIOSH is requesting a one-year approval for this data collection. Measuring worker well-being is the first step towards improving workplace policies, programs, and practices to promote prevention of disease and injury. The Total Worker Health® Program within NIOSH has made worker wellbeing a key aspect of its mission. The Total Worker Health (TWH) Program encompasses policies, programs, and practices that integrate protection from work-related safety and health hazards with promotion of injury and illness prevention efforts to advance worker well-being. The goal of TWH is not only to prevent disease or injury, but also to promote a culture of safety and health and an enhancement of overall wellbeing. In order to promote and enhance worker well-being it is first necessary to develop and validate instruments aimed at measuring the concept.

Background mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is responsible for administering the Medicare and Medicaid programs and coordination and oversight of private health insurance. Administration and oversight of these programs involves the following: (1) Furnishing information to Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries, health care providers, and the public; and (2) maintaining effective communications with CMS regional offices, state governments, state Medicaid agencies, state survey agencies, various providers of health care, all Medicare contractors that process claims and pay bills, National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC), health insurers, and other stakeholders. To implement the various statutes on which the programs are based, we issue regulations under the authority granted to the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services under sections 1102, 1871, 1902, and related provisions of the Social Security Act (the Act) and Public Health Service Act. We also issue VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:26 Nov 10, 2016 Jkt 241001 various manuals, memoranda, and statements necessary to administer and oversee the programs efficiently. Section 1871(c) of the Act requires that we publish a list of all Medicare manual instructions, interpretive rules, statements of policy, and guidelines of general applicability not issued as regulations at least every 3 months in the Federal Register. II. Format for the Quarterly Issuance Notices This quarterly notice provides only the specific updates that have occurred in the 3-month period along with a hyperlink to the full listing that is available on the CMS Web site or the appropriate data registries that are used as our resources. This is the most current up-to-date information and will be available earlier than we publish our quarterly notice. We believe the Web site list provides more timely access for beneficiaries, providers, and suppliers. We also believe the Web site offers a more convenient tool for the public to find the full list of qualified providers for these specific services and offers more flexibility and ‘‘real time’’ PO 00000 Frm 00080 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Phone number (410) (410) (410) (410) (410) (410) (410) (410) (410) (410) (410) (410) (410) (410) (410) (410) 786–1864 786–4481 786–7548 786–7491 786–6877 786–4669 786–2749 786–2749 786–7205 786–7205 786–8564 786–8616 786–2749 786–2749 786–8564 786–6580 accessibility. In addition, many of the Web sites have listservs; that is, the public can subscribe and receive immediate notification of any updates to the Web site. These listservs avoid the need to check the Web site, as notification of updates is automatic and sent to the subscriber as they occur. If assessing a Web site proves to be difficult, the contact person listed can provide information. III. How To Use the Notice This notice is organized into 15 addenda so that a reader may access the subjects published during the quarter covered by the notice to determine whether any are of particular interest. We expect this notice to be used in concert with previously published notices. Those unfamiliar with a description of our Medicare manuals should view the manuals at http:// www.cms.gov/manuals. Dated: November 7, 2016. Kathleen Cantwell, Director, Office of Strategic Operations and Regulatory Affairs. BILLING CODE 4120–01–P E:\FR\FM\14NON1.SGM 14NON1 mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES VerDate Sep<11>2014 Jkt 241001 PO 00000 Frm 00081 Fmt 4703 Addendum 1: Medicare and Medicaid Manual Instructions (July through September 2016) The CMS Manual System is used by CMS program components, partners, providers, contractors, Medicare Advantage organizations, and State Survey Agencies to administer CMS programs. It offers day-to-day operating instructions, policies, and procedures based on statutes and regulations, guidelines, models, and directives. In 2003, we transformed the CMS Program Manuals into a web user-friendly presentation and renamed it the CMS Online Manual System. Sfmt 4725 E:\FR\FM\14NON1.SGM 14NON1 How to Obtain Manuals The Internet-only Manuals (IOMs) are a replica of the Agency's official record copy. Paper-based manuals are CMS manuals that were officially released in hardcopy. The majority of these manuals were transferred into the Internet-only manual (10M) or retired. Pub 15-1, Pub 15-2 and Pub 45 are exceptions to this rule and are still active paper-based manuals. The remaining paper-based manuals are for reference purposes only. If you notice policy contained in the paper-based manuals that was not transferred to the 10M, send a message via the CMS Feedback tool. Those wishing to subscribe to old versions of CMS manuals should contact the National Technical Information Service, Department of Commerce, 5301 Shawnee Road, Alexandria, VA 22312 Telephone (703-605-6050). You can download copies of the listed material free of charge at: http://cms.gov/manuals. How to Review Transmittals or Program Memoranda Those wishing to review transmittals and program memoranda can access this information at a local Federal Depository Library (FDL). Under the FDL program, government publications are sent to approximately 1,400 designated libraries throughout the United States. Some FDLs may have arrangements to transfer material to a local library not designated as an FDL. Contact any library to locate the nearest FDL. This information is available at http://www.gpo.gov/libraries/ In addition, individuals may contact regional depository libraries that receive and retain at least one copy of most federal government publications, either in printed or microfilm form, for use by the general public. These libraries provide reference services and interlibrary loans; however, they arc not sales outlets. Individuals may obtain information about the location of the nearest regional depository library from any library. CMS publication and transmittal numbers are shown in the listing entitled Medicare and Medicaid Manual Instructions. To help FDLs locate the materials, use the CMS publication and transmittal numbers. For example, to find the manual for Medicare Internet Only Manual Publication Quarterly Update to the Correct Coding Initiative (CCI) Edits, Version22.3, Effective October 1, 2016 use (CMS-Pub. 100-04) Transmittal No. 3561. Addendum I lists a unique CMS transmittal number for each instruction in our manuals or program memoranda and its subject number. A transmittal may consist of a single or multiple instruction(s). Often, it is necessary to use information in a transmittal in conjunction with information currently in the manual. For the purposes of this quarterly notice, we list only the specific updates to the list of manual instructions that have occurred in the 3-month period.

Completed decisions are identified by the section of the NCD Manual (NCDM) in which the decision appears, the title, the date the publication was issued, and the effective date of the decision. An NCD is a detennination by the Secretary for whether or not a particular item or service is covered nationally under the Medicare Program (title XVIII of the Act), but does not include a detennination of the code, if any, that is assigned to a particular covered item or service, or payment detennination for a particular covered item or service. The entries below include information concerning completed decisions, as well as sections on program and decision memoranda, which also armounce decisions or, in some cases, explain why it was not appropriate to issue an NCD. Information on completed decisions as well as pending decisions has also been posted on the CMS website. There were no updates that occurred in the 3-month period. This information is available at: www.cms.gov/medicare-coverage-database/. For questions or additional information, contact Wanda Belle, MPA (410-786-7491). Addendum V: FDA-Approved Category B Investigational Device Exemptions (IDEs) (July through September 2016) Addendum V includes listings of the FDA-approved investigational device exemption (IDE) numbers that the FDA assigns. The listings are organized according to the categories to which the devices are assigned (that is, Category A or Category B), and identified by the IDE number. For the purposes of this quarterly notice, we list only the specific updates to the Category BIDEs as of the ending date of the period covered by this notice and a contact person for questions or additional information. For questions or additional information, contact John Manlove (410-7866877). Under the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 360c) devices fall into one of three classes. To assist CMS under this categorization process, the FDA assigns one of two categories to each FDA-approved investigational device exemption (IDE). Category A refers to experimental IDEs, and Category B refers to non-experimental IDEs.

Addendum VII: Medicare-Approved Carotid Stent Facilities, (July through September 2016) Addendum VII includes listings of Medicare-approved carotid stent facilities. All facilities listed meet CMS standards for performing carotid artery stenting for high risk patients. On March 17, 2005, we issued our decision memorandum on carotid artery stenting. We determined that carotid artery stenting with embolic protection is reasonable and necessary only if performed in facilities that have been determined to be competent in performing the evaluation, procedure, and follow-up necessary to ensure optimal patient outcomes. We have created a list of minimum standards for facilities modeled in part on professional society statements on competency. All facilities must at least meet our standards in order to receive coverage for carotid artery stenting for high risk patients.

We cover implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) for certain clinical indications, as long as information about the procedures is reported to a central registry. Detailed descriptions of the covered indications are available in the NCD. In January 2005, CMS established the ICD Abstraction Tool through the Quality Network Exchange (QNet) as a temporary data collection mechanism. On October 27, 2005, CMS announced that the American College of Cardiology's National Cardiovascular Data Registry (ACC-NCDR) lCD Registry satisfies the data reporting requirements in the NCD. Hospitals needed to transition to the ACC-NCDR lCD Registry by April2006. Effective January 27, 2005, to obtain reimbursement, Medicare NCD policy requires that providers implanting ICDs for primary prevention clinical indications (that is, patients without a history of cardiac arrest or spontaneous arrhythmia) report data on each primary prevention ICD procedure. Details of the clinical indications that are covered by Medicare and their respective data reporting requirements are available in the Medicare NCD Manual, which is on the CMS website at A provider can use either of two mechanisms to satisfy the data reporting requirement. Patients may be enrolled either in an Investigational Device Exemption trial studying ICDs as identified by the FDA or in the ACC-NCDR lCD registry. Therefore, for a beneficiary to receive a Medicare-covered ICD implantation for primary prevention, the beneficiary must receive the scan in a facility that participates in the ACC-NCDR ICD registry. The entire list of facilities that participate in the ACC-NCDR ICD registry can be found at www.ncdr.com/webncdr/common For the purposes of this quarterly notice, we are providing only the specific updates that have occurred in the 3-month period.

Although CMS has several policy vehicles relating to evidence development activities including the investigational device exemption (IDE), the clinical trial policy, national coverage determinations and local coverage determinations, this guidance document is principally intended to help the public understand CMS's implementation of coverage with evidence development (CED) tlrrough the national coverage determination process. The document is available at http://www.cms.gov/medicare-coverage-database/details/medicarecoverage-document-details.aspx?MCDid=27.

We cover positron emission tomography (PET) scans for particular oncologic indications when they are performed in a facility that participates in the NOPR. In January 2005, we issued our decision memorandum on positron emission tomography (PET) scans, which stated that CMS would cover PET scans for particular oncologic indications, as long as they were performed in the context of a clinical study. We have since recognized the National Oncologic PET Registry as one of these clinical studies. Therefore, in order for a beneficiary to receive a Medicare-covered PET scan, the beneficiary must receive the scan in a facility that participates in the registry. There were no additions, deletions, or editorial changes to the listing of National Oncologic Positron Emission Tomography Registry (NOPR) in the 3-month period.

Addendum XII: Medicare-Approved Ventricular Assist Device (Destination Therapy) Facilities (July through September 2016) Addendum XII includes a listing of Medicare-approved facilities that receive coverage for ventricular assist devices (VADs) used as destination therapy. All facilities were required to meet our standards in order to receive coverage for VADs implanted as destination therapy. On October 1, 2003, we issued our decision memorandum on V ADs for the clinical indication of destination therapy. We determined that VADs used as destination therapy are reasonable and necessary only if performed in facilities that have been determined to have the experience and infrastructure to ensure optimal patient outcomes. We established facility standards and an application process. All facilities were required to meet our standards in order to receive coverage for VADs implanted as destination therapy. We are providing only the specific updates to the list of Medicareapproved facilities that meet our standards that have occurred in the 3-month period.

Until May 17, 2007, facilities that participated in the National Emphysema Treatment Trial were also eligible to receive coverage. The following three types of facilities are eligible for reimbursement for Lung Volume Reduction Surgery (L VRS): • National Emphysema Treatment Trial (NETT) approved (Beginning 05/07/2007, these will no longer automatically qualify and can qualify only with the other programs); • Credentialed by the Joint Commission (formerly, the Joint Commision on Accreditation ofHealthcare Organizations (JCAHO)) under their Disease Specific Certification Program for L VRS; and • Medicare approved for lung transplants.

All facilities must meet our standards in order to receive coverage for bariatric surgery procedures. On February 21, 2006, we issued our decision memorandum on bariatric surgery procedures. We determined that bariatric surgical procedures are reasonable and necessary for Medicare beneficiaries who have a body-mass index (BMI) greater than or equal to 35, have at least one co-morbidity related to obesity and have been previously unsuccessful with medical treatment for obesity. This decision also stipulated that covered bariatric surgery procedures are reasonable and necessary only when performed at facilities that are: (1) certified by the American College of Surgeons (ACS) as a Levell Bariatric Surgery Center (program standards and requirements in effect on February 15, 2006); or (2) certified by the American Society for Bariatric Surgery (ASBS) as a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence (ESCOE) (program standards and requirements in effect on February 15, 2006). There were no additions, deletions, or editorial changes to Medicare-approved facilities that meet CMS' s minimum facility standards for bariatric surgery that have been certified by ACS and/or ASMBS in the 3-month period.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA or Agency) is issuing an order under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the FD&C Act) permanently debarring Edward Manookian from providing services in any capacity to a person that has an approved or pending drug SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:26 Nov 10, 2016 Jkt 241001 product application. FDA bases this order on a finding that Mr. Manookian was convicted of felonies under Federal law for conduct relating to the regulation of a drug product under the FD&C Act. Mr. Manookian was given notice of the proposed permanent debarment and an opportunity to request a hearing within the timeframe prescribed by regulation. Mr. Manookian failed to request a hearing. Mr. Manookian’s failure to request a hearing constitutes a waiver of his right to a hearing concerning this action. DATES: This order is effective November 14, 2016. ADDRESSES: Submit applications for special termination of debarment to the Division of Dockets Management (HFA– 305), Food and Drug Administration, 5630 Fishers Lane, Rm. 1061, Rockville, MD 20852. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kenny Shade, Division of Enforcement, Food and Drug Administration, 12420 Parklawn Dr. (ELEM–4144), Rockville, MD 20857, 301–796–4640. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background Section 306(a)(2)(B) of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 335a(a)(2)(B)) requires debarment of an individual if FDA finds that the individual has been convicted of a felony under Federal law for conduct relating to the regulation of any drug product under the FD&C Act. On August 28, 2015, the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee entered judgment against Mr. Manookian for two counts of conspiracy to commit an offense against the United States, in violation of 18 U.S.C. 371. FDA’s finding that the debarment is appropriate is based on the felony convictions referenced herein. The factual basis for these convictions is as follows: Mr. Manookian was the President and owner of Melanocorp, Inc. (Melanocorp), a for-profit corporation that conducted operations in the Middle District of Tennessee, and his duties included overseeing the employees and operations of Melanocorp. Melanotan II (MII) was a peptide, or series of amino acids, that was marketed, sold, and shipped by Melanocorp to customers in the United States and abroad. Mr. Manookian’s company advertised MII, an unapproved new drug, as an injectable tanning product through an internet Web site. The Melanocorp Web site also advertised MII as being 100 percent U.S. made, whereas in fact some of the MII sold by Melanocorp was manufactured in and imported from China. PO 00000 Frm 00091 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 79501 On or about August 30, 2007, Melanocorp received a warning letter from FDA expressing concern about Melanocorp’s marketing of MII. The warning letter noted that, based on information and statements on the Melanocorp Web site, MII constituted a new drug under the FD&C Act that could not be introduced or delivered for introduction into interstate commerce without an FDA approved application. The warning letter concluded that the sale of MII without an FDA approved application violated the FD&C Act and instructed Mr. Manookian’s company to take prompt action to correct the violations cited in the warning letter. On or about September 17, 2007, after consulting with counsel, Mr. Manookian sent a letter to FDA stating that Melanocorp had stopped all promotion and sale of MII in the United States and had stopped taking orders for MII from U.S. residents. On or about November 29, 2007, FDA sent a letter to an attorney representing Melanocorp, which reiterated that MII was considered by FDA to be an unapproved drug and warned that its introduction or delivery for introduction into interstate commerce would be a violation of the FD&C Act. The letter specifically stated that the sale of MII outside of the United States violated the FD&C Act. On or about December 14, 2007, Mr. Manookian had a letter sent to FDA from his attorney confirming that Melanocorp had stopped taking orders for MII from U.S. residents. This letter also stated that Melanocorp did not disagree that FDA considered MII to be an unapproved new drug, but Mr. Manookian’s position was that Melanocorp could lawfully export MII, regardless of its status as an unapproved new drug. On or about December 28, 2007, FDA sent a letter to Mr. Manookian’s attorney which reiterated that unapproved new drugs do not qualify for export. Following receipt of the December 28, 2007, correspondence from FDA, Melanocorp continued to ship MII in interstate commerce. Melanocorp primarily sold MII to customers located abroad, but also shipped MII domestically on a more limited basis. From on or about September 17, 2007, and continuing through in or about April 2009, Mr. Manookian conspired with others to defraud the United States by causing Melanocorp to ship MII to customers in the United States despite telling FDA that Melanocorp would not distribute or market MII in the United States. As a result of these convictions, FDA sent Mr. Manookian by certified mail on E:\FR\FM\14NON1.SGM 14NON1

I. Background

    The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is responsible 
for administering the Medicare and Medicaid programs and coordination 
and oversight of private health insurance. Administration and oversight 
of these programs involves the following: (1) Furnishing information to 
Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries, health care providers, and the 
public; and (2) maintaining effective communications with CMS regional 
offices, state governments, state Medicaid agencies, state survey 
agencies, various providers of health care, all Medicare contractors 
that process claims and pay bills, National Association of Insurance 
Commissioners (NAIC), health insurers, and other stakeholders. To 
implement the various statutes on which the programs are based, we 
issue regulations under the authority granted to the Secretary of the 
Department of Health and Human Services under sections 1102, 1871, 
1902, and related provisions of the Social Security Act (the Act) and 
Public Health Service Act. We also issue various manuals, memoranda, 
and statements necessary to administer and oversee the programs 
efficiently.
    Section 1871(c) of the Act requires that we publish a list of all 
Medicare manual instructions, interpretive rules, statements of policy, 
and guidelines of general applicability not issued as regulations at 
least every 3 months in the Federal Register.

II. Format for the Quarterly Issuance Notices

    This quarterly notice provides only the specific updates that have 
occurred in the 3-month period along with a hyperlink to the full 
listing that is available on the CMS Web site or the appropriate data 
registries that are used as our resources. This is the most current up-
to-date information and will be available earlier than we publish our 
quarterly notice. We believe the Web site list provides more timely 
access for beneficiaries, providers, and suppliers. We also believe the 
Web site offers a more convenient tool for the public to find the full 
list of qualified providers for these specific services and offers more 
flexibility and ``real time'' accessibility. In addition, many of the 
Web sites have listservs; that is, the public can subscribe and receive 
immediate notification of any updates to the Web site. These listservs 
avoid the need to check the Web site, as notification of updates is 
automatic and sent to the subscriber as they occur. If assessing a Web 
site proves to be difficult, the contact person listed can provide 
information.

III. How To Use the Notice

    This notice is organized into 15 addenda so that a reader may 
access the subjects published during the quarter covered by the notice 
to determine whether any are of particular interest. We expect this 
notice to be used in concert with previously published notices. Those 
unfamiliar with a description of our Medicare manuals should view the 
manuals at http://www.cms.gov/manuals.
