Download as PDF 85572 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 228 / Monday, November 28, 2016 / Notices for State Medicaid Implemented Moratorium’’ was created to collect that data, in a uniform manner, which the states report to CMS when they request a moratorium. Currently, CMS is collecting this data on an ad-hoc basis, however this process needs to be standardized so that moratoria decisions are being made based on the same criteria each time. The goal of the Initial Request for State Medicaid Implemented Moratorium form is to provide a uniform application process that all of the states may follow so that CMS is able to administer the Medicaid or Children’s Health Insurance Program moratorium process in a standardized and repeatable manner. This form creates a standardized process so that moratoria decisions are being made with the same criteria each time. Form Number: CMS–10628 (OMB control number: 0938–NEW); Frequency: Occasionally; Affected Public: State, Local, or Tribal Governments; Number of Respondents: 15; Total Annual Responses: 15; Total Annual Hours: 75. (For policy questions regarding this collection contact Cheryl Cooper at 410– 786–8624.) Dated: November 21, 2016. William N.
