I. Background: The Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs administers the Federal Black Lung Workers’ Compensation Program. The Black Lung Benefits Act (30 U.S.C. 901, et seq.) and its implementing regulations necessitate this information collection. The regulations at 20 CFR 725.701 et seq., establish miner eligibility for medical services and supplies for the length of time required by the miner’s pneumoconiosis and related disability. 20 CFR 725.706 requires prior approval before ordering an apparatus where the purchase price exceeds $300.00. 20 CFR 725.707 provides for the ongoing supervision of the miner’s medical care, including the necessity, character and sufficiency of care to be furnished; gives the authority to request medical reports; and indicates the right to refuse payment for failing to submit any report required. Because of the above legislation and regulations, it was necessary to devise a form to collect the required information. The form is the CM–893, Certificate of Medical Necessity (CMN). The CM–893, Certificate of Medical Necessity is completed by the coal miner’s doctor and is used by the Division of Coal Mine Workers’ Compensation to determine if the miner meets impairment standards to qualify for durable medical equipment and home nursing. This information collection is currently approved for use through February 28, 2018. II. Review Focus: The Department of Labor is particularly interested in comments which: • Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; • evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E:\FR\FM\18OCN1.SGM 18OCN1 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 200 / Wednesday, October 18, 2017 / Notices proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; • enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and • minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submissions of responses.
