Download as PDF 20480 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 83 / Tuesday, May 2, 2017 / Notices Auction Financial Module, however, will not be considered the date of receipt by the winning bidder for purposes of implementing the Commission’s rules. Instead, the winning bidder will be considered to have received its payment five (5) business days after the date of the Ready to Pay Public Notice stating that the incentive payment for a particular station with a winning bid is ready to be disbursed. 9. The U.S. Treasury has authority to offset federal payments, including incentive payments, based on information not available to the Commission. Consequently, the Auction Payments component of the CORES Incentive Auction Financial Module cannot report information regarding any such offsets. A winning bidder needing information regarding any discrepancy between the amount of its winning bid and the incentive payment received that is not accounted for by offsets or withholdings identified by the Commission must seek the information directly from the U.S. Treasury by calling 1–800–304–3107. Hearing impaired callers may use the Federal Relay Service by dialing 1–800–877– 8339 to reach a communications assistant who will dial the toll free number. sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES III. Processing Reimbursement Payments A. Tracking Reimbursement Payments 10. The Commission does not control the precise date on which the U.S. Treasury makes each reimbursement payment or when each reimbursement payment is received in the account identified by the Eligible Entity or becomes available to the account holder. After a payment is in fact made, the Auction Payments component of the CORES Incentive Auction Financial Module separately will report the U.S. Treasury scheduled disbursement date for the payment being made. That date is provided for purposes of tracking payments. The Auction Payments component of the CORES Incentive Auction Financial Module will also show the 399 file number, reference code, and the amount that the FCC requested be disbursed with respect to the Facility ID/File Number. 11. The U.S. Treasury has authority to offset federal payments, including reimbursement payments, based on information not available to the Commission. Consequently, the Auction Payments component of the CORES Incentive Auction Financial Module cannot report information regarding any such offsets. An Eligible Entity needing VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:36 May 01, 2017 Jkt 241001 information regarding any discrepancy between its approved reimbursement payment and the amount it actually received must seek the information directly from the U.S. Treasury by calling 1–800–304–3107. Hearing impaired callers may use the Federal Relay Service by dialing 1–800–877– 8339 to reach a communications assistant who will dial the toll free number. B. Effects of Ownership Changes 12. Given that the Commission will be processing reimbursement payments for several years after the release of the Closing and Reassignment Public Notice, a licensee may assign or transfer a reassigned station before it has received all of its reimbursement allotment. If any reassigned station is the subject of a transaction (i.e., assignment or transfer of control) that is consummated after the release of the Closing and Reassignment Public Notice and results in a new FRN for that station (i.e., results in a new FRN-Facility ID relationship), FCC staff will deactivate the bank account information associated with the station’s pre-consummation FRN, and will hold the station’s inprocess reimbursement payment(s), if any, upon acceptance of the consummation. Once a reimbursement payment has been processed (i.e., submitted to the U.S. Treasury for disbursement) a freeze will not preclude transmittal of the processed payment. To facilitate future reimbursement payments, the assignee must file a new reimbursement request and timely submit a new FCC Form 1876, along with a bank account verification letter or redacted bank statement that confirms ownership of the bank account. Any delay in submission of a new FCC Form 1876 may cause a delay in the disbursement of a reimbursement payment as directed by the assignee. 13. The assignee also must submit bank account information in the Auction Bank Accounts component of the CORES Incentive Auction Financial Module even if the bank account information has not changed as a result of the ownership change. None of the station’s payment information associated with the pre-consummation FRN will transfer over to the station’s post-consummation FRN in the Auction Payments component of the CORES Incentive Auction Financial Module. Any pre-consummation payment information will, however, remain available to any authorized users via the pre-consummation FRN account. Therefore, the assignor and assignee should address in any transaction agreement the responsibilities and PO 00000 Frm 00025 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 expectations of each party with respect to reimbursement payments, use of the FRN accounts related to the transferred or assigned station(s), and any related matters. 14. Reimbursement payments will be disbursed only to an Eligible Entity— reimbursement payments will not be disbursed to third parties. As a result, once the assignment or transfer of a reassigned station has been consummated, reimbursement payments will only be disbursed to the assignee or transferee. Because an assignment or transfer of control application could be granted and the parties could consummate the transaction while a reimbursement request is pending, we strongly encourage licensees of reassigned stations to account for this possibility in their transaction agreements and to consider the status of pending reimbursement requests when deciding to consummate a transaction. Failure to do so may result in a delay in grant of the assignment or transfer of control application and/or delay the Commission’s reimbursement process. 15. Prior to granting and/or accepting consummation of a post-auction transaction involving one or more reassigned stations, the Media Bureau will provide additional procedural guidance to the parties involved in the transaction.

More detailed information can be found in each collection’s supporting statement and associated materials (see ADDRESSES). CMS–10418 Medical Loss Ratio Annual Reports, MLR Notices, and Recordkeeping Requirements 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 submitting the collection to OMB for approval. To comply with this requirement, CMS is publishing this notice. 1. Type of Information Collection Request: Revision of a currently approved collection; Title of Information Collection: Annual MLR and Rebate Calculation Report and MLR PO 00000 Frm 00026 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 20481 Rebate Notices; Use: Under Section 2718 of the Affordable Care Act and implementing regulation at 45 CFR part 158, a health insurance issuer (issuer) offering group or individual health insurance coverage must submit a report to the Secretary concerning the amount the issuer spends each year on claims, quality improvement expenses, nonclaims costs, Federal and State taxes and licensing and regulatory fees, the amount of earned premium, and beginning with the 2014 reporting year, the amounts related to the transitional reinsurance, risk corridors, and risk adjustment programs established under sections 1341, 1342, and 1343, respectively, of the Affordable Care Act. An issuer must provide an annual rebate if the amount it spends on certain costs compared to its premium revenue (excluding Federal and States taxes and licensing and regulatory fees) does not meet a certain ratio, referred to as the medical loss ratio (MLR). Each issuer is required to submit annually MLR data, including information about any rebates it must provide, on a form prescribed by CMS, for each State in which the issuer conducts business. Each issuer is also required to provide a rebate notice to each policyholder that is owed a rebate and each subscriber of policyholders that are owed a rebate for any given MLR reporting year. Additionally, each issuer is required to maintain for a period of seven years all documents, records and other evidence that support the data included in each issuer’s annual report to the Secretary. Under Section 1342 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and implementing regulation at 45 CFR part 153, issuers of qualified health plans (QHPs) must participate in a risk corridors program. A QHP issuer will pay risk corridors charges or be eligible to receive payments based on the ratio of the issuer’s allowable costs to the target amount. Each QHP issuer is required to submit an annual report to CMS concerning the issuer’s allowable costs, allowable administrative costs, premium, and proportion of market premium in QHPs. Risk corridors premium information that is specific to an issuer’s QHPs is collected through a separate plan-level data form, which is included in this information collection. Additionally, each QHP issuer is required to maintain for a period of ten years all documents, records and other evidence sufficient to enable the evaluation of the issuer’s compliance with applicable risk corridors standards. Based upon CMS’ experience in the MLR data collection and evaluation process, CMS is updating its annual E:\FR\FM\02MYN1.SGM 02MYN1
