Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 42 / Monday, March 6, 2017 / Rules and Regulations Register on January 24, 2017 (82 FR 8346) instructed federal agencies to delay the effective date of rules published in the Federal Register, but which have not yet taken effect, for a period of 60 days from the date of the memorandum. The final rule sets forth the calculation of the 340B ceiling price and application of civil monetary penalties (CMPs). The effective date of that rule, which would have been March 6, 2017, is now March 21, 2017. The temporary delay in the effective date of this final rule is necessary to give Department officials the opportunity for further review and consideration of new regulations, consistent with the Assistant to the President and Chief of Staff’s memorandum. Dated: February 23, 2017. James Macrae, Acting Administrator, Health Resources and Services Administration. Approved: March 1, 2017. Thomas E.

Background In FR Doc. 2016–31650 (82 FR 37 through 40), the correcting amendment entitled, ‘‘Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) Programs; Medicaid Managed Care, CHIP Delivered in Managed Care, and Revisions Related to Third Party Liability; Corrections’’ there were technical errors that are identified and corrected in this correcting document. These corrections are applicable immediately. II. Summary of Errors in Regulation Text On page 39, we made technical errors in the amendatory instructions amending the regulation text of § 438.358(c)(3) and (4). Therefore, the Office of the Federal Register was not able to properly correct the regulations text as intended. III. Waiver of Proposed Rulemaking and Delay in Effective Date Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), the agency is required to publish a notice of the proposed rule in the Federal Register before the provisions of a rule take effect. In addition, section 553(d) of the APA mandates a 30-day delay in effective date after issuance or publication of a rule. Sections 553(b)(B) and 553(d)(3) of the APA provide for exceptions from the APA requirement for notice and comment, and delay in effective date requirements. Section 553(b)(B) of the APA authorizes an agency to dispense with normal notice and comment rulemaking procedures for good cause if the agency makes a finding that the notice and comment process is impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest; and includes a statement of the finding and the reasons for it in the notice. In our view, this correcting document does not constitute a rulemaking that would be subject to these requirements. This document merely corrects technical errors in the Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) Programs; Medicaid Managed Care, CHIP Delivered in Managed Care, and Revisions Related to Third Party Liability; Corrections correcting amendment. The corrections contained in this document are consistent with, and do not make substantive changes to, the policies and payment methodologies that were adopted subject to notice and PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 12509 comment procedures in the Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) Programs; Medicaid Managed Care, CHIP Delivered in Managed Care, and Revisions Related to Third Party Liability final rule. As a result, the corrections made through this correcting document are intended to ensure that the Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) Programs; Medicaid Managed Care, CHIP Delivered in Managed Care, and Revisions Related to Third Party Liability final rule accurately reflects the policies adopted in that rule. Even if this were a rulemaking to which the notice and comment and delayed effective date requirements applied, we find that there is good cause to waive such requirements. Undertaking further notice and comment procedures to incorporate the corrections in this document into the Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) Programs; Medicaid Managed Care, CHIP Delivered in Managed Care, and Revisions Related to Third Party Liability final rule or delaying the effective date of the corrections would be contrary to the public interest because it could result in a period of confusion about the applicability of the rules while those procedures are pending. Further, such procedures would be unnecessary, because the corrections in this document do not make substantive changes in the underlying policies but are limited to technical errors. This correcting document is intended solely to ensure that the Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) Programs; Medicaid Managed Care, CHIP Delivered in Managed Care, and Revisions Related to Third Party Liability final rule accurately reflects the final policy determinations that were set forth in the overall rulemaking record. For these reasons, we believe there is good cause to waive the requirements for notice and comment and delay in effective date.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    In FR Doc. 2016-31650 (82 FR 37 through 40), the correcting 
amendment entitled, ``Medicaid and Children's Health Insurance Program 
(CHIP) Programs; Medicaid Managed Care, CHIP Delivered in Managed Care, 
and Revisions Related to Third Party Liability; Corrections'' there 
were technical errors that are identified and corrected in this 
correcting document. These corrections are applicable immediately.

II. Summary of Errors in Regulation Text

    On page 39, we made technical errors in the amendatory instructions 
amending the regulation text of Sec.  438.358(c)(3) and (4). Therefore, 
the Office of the Federal Register was not able to properly correct the 
regulations text as intended.

III. Waiver of Proposed Rulemaking and Delay in Effective Date

    Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), 
the agency is required to publish a notice of the proposed rule in the 
Federal Register before the provisions of a rule take effect. In 
addition, section 553(d) of the APA mandates a 30-day delay in 
effective date after issuance or publication of a rule. Sections 
553(b)(B) and 553(d)(3) of the APA provide for exceptions from the APA 
requirement for notice and comment, and delay in effective date 
requirements. Section 553(b)(B) of the APA authorizes an agency to 
dispense with normal notice and comment rulemaking procedures for good 
cause if the agency makes a finding that the notice and comment process 
is impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest; and 
includes a statement of the finding and the reasons for it in the 
notice.
    In our view, this correcting document does not constitute a 
rulemaking that would be subject to these requirements. This document 
merely corrects technical errors in the Medicaid and Children's Health 
Insurance Program (CHIP) Programs; Medicaid Managed Care, CHIP 
Delivered in Managed Care, and Revisions Related to Third Party 
Liability; Corrections correcting amendment. The corrections contained 
in this document are consistent with, and do not make substantive 
changes to, the policies and payment methodologies that were adopted 
subject to notice and comment procedures in the Medicaid and Children's 
Health Insurance Program (CHIP) Programs; Medicaid Managed Care, CHIP 
Delivered in Managed Care, and Revisions Related to Third Party 
Liability final rule. As a result, the corrections made through this 
correcting document are intended to ensure that the Medicaid and 
Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) Programs; Medicaid Managed 
Care, CHIP Delivered in Managed Care, and Revisions Related to Third 
Party Liability final rule accurately reflects the policies adopted in 
that rule.
    Even if this were a rulemaking to which the notice and comment and 
delayed effective date requirements applied, we find that there is good 
cause to waive such requirements. Undertaking further notice and 
comment procedures to incorporate the corrections in this document into 
the Medicaid and Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) Programs; 
Medicaid Managed Care, CHIP Delivered in Managed Care, and Revisions 
Related to Third Party Liability final rule or delaying the effective 
date of the corrections would be contrary to the public interest 
because it could result in a period of confusion about the 
applicability of the rules while those procedures are pending. Further, 
such procedures would be unnecessary, because the corrections in this 
document do not make substantive changes in the underlying policies but 
are limited to technical errors. This correcting document is intended 
solely to ensure that the Medicaid and Children's Health Insurance 
Program (CHIP) Programs; Medicaid Managed Care, CHIP Delivered in 
Managed Care, and Revisions Related to Third Party Liability final rule 
accurately reflects the final policy determinations that were set forth 
in the overall rulemaking record. For these reasons, we believe there 
is good cause to waive the requirements for notice and comment and 
delay in effective date.
