Section 224(o) relates to employees, officers, and contractors at qualifying free clinics. The Free Clinics FTCA Program is administered by HRSA’s Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC). Sponsoring free clinics are required by law to submit deeming applications in the specified form and manner on behalf of named individuals for review and approval, resulting in a ‘‘deeming determination’’ that includes associated FTCA coverage for these individuals. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: Deeming applications must address certain specified criteria required by law for deeming determinations to be issued, and FTCA application forms are critical to BPHC’s deeming determination process. These forms provide BPHC with the information necessary to evaluate an application and determine whether an individual meets the requirements for deemed PHS employee status for the purposes of FTCA coverage. FTCA application forms for free clinics do not require any changes with this extension other than to update the applicable dates. Likely Respondents: Respondents include free clinics seeking deemed PHS employee status on behalf of their sponsored individuals for purposes of FTCA coverage. Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose, or provide the information requested.

    Need and Proposed Use of the Information: Deeming applications must 
address certain specified criteria required by law for deeming 
determinations to be issued, and FTCA application forms are critical to 
BPHC's deeming determination process. These forms provide BPHC with the 
information necessary to evaluate an application and determine whether 
an individual meets the requirements for deemed PHS employee status for 
the purposes of FTCA coverage. FTCA application forms for free clinics 
do not require any changes with this extension other than to update the 
applicable dates.

PHS employee status on behalf of their sponsored individuals for 
purposes of FTCA coverage.
