While the Secretary of HHS is named as the respondent in all proceedings brought by the filing of petitions for compensation under the Program, the United States Court of Federal Claims is charged by statute with responsibility for considering and acting upon the petitions.

SUMMARY: The program provides a system of no-fault compensation for certain individuals who have been injured by specified childhood vaccines. Subtitle 2 of Title XXI of the PHS Act, 42 U.S.C. 300aa– 10 et seq., provides that those seeking compensation are to file a petition with the U.S. Court of Federal Claims and to serve a copy of the petition on the Secretary of HHS, who is named as the respondent in each proceeding. The Secretary has delegated this responsibility under the Program to HRSA. The Court is directed by statute to appoint special masters who take evidence, conduct hearings as appropriate, and make initial decisions SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00033 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 as to eligibility for, and amount of, compensation. A petition may be filed with respect to injuries, disabilities, illnesses, conditions, and deaths resulting from vaccines described in the Vaccine Injury Table (the table) set forth at 42 CFR 100.3. This table lists for each covered childhood vaccine the conditions that may lead to compensation and, for each condition, the time period for occurrence of the first symptom or manifestation of onset or of significant aggravation after vaccine administration. Compensation may also be awarded for conditions not listed in the table and for conditions that are manifested outside the time periods specified in the Table, but only if the petitioner shows that the condition was caused by one of the listed vaccines. Section 2112(b)(2) of the PHS Act, 42 U.S.C. 300aa–12(b)(2), requires that ‘‘[w]ithin 30 days after the Secretary receives service of any petition filed under section 2111 the Secretary shall publish notice of such petition in the Federal Register.’’ Set forth below is a list of petitions received by HRSA on September 1, 2017, through September 30, 2017. This list provides the name of petitioner, city and state of vaccination (if unknown then city and state of person or attorney filing claim), and case number. In cases where the Court has redacted the name of a petitioner and/or the case number, the list reflects such redaction. Section 2112(b)(2) also provides that the special master ‘‘shall afford all interested persons an opportunity to submit relevant, written information’’ relating to the following: 1. The existence of evidence ‘‘that there is not a preponderance of the evidence that the illness, disability, injury, condition, or death described in the petition is due to factors unrelated to the administration of the vaccine described in the petition,’’ and 2. Any allegation in a petition that the petitioner either: a. ‘‘[S]ustained, or had significantly aggravated, any illness, disability, injury, or condition not set forth in the Vaccine Injury Table but which was caused by’’ one of the vaccines referred to in the Table, or b. ‘‘[S]ustained, or had significantly aggravated, any illness, disability, injury, or condition set forth in the Vaccine Injury Table the first symptom or manifestation of the onset or significant aggravation of which did not occur within the time period set forth in the Table but which was caused by a vaccine’’ referred to in the Table. In accordance with Section 2112(b)(2), all interested persons may E:\FR\FM\30OCN1.SGM 30OCN1 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 208 / Monday, October 30, 2017 / Notices submit written information relevant to the issues described above in the case of the petitions listed below.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) is publishing an updated monetary amount of the average cost of a health insurance policy as it relates to the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP). Section 100.2 of the VICP’s implementing regulation (42 CFR part 100) states that the revised amount of an average cost of a health insurance policy, as determined by the Secretary, is effective upon its delivery by the Secretary to the United States Court of Federal Claims (the Court), and will be published periodically in a notice in the Federal Register. This figure is calculated using the most recent Medical Expenditure Panel SurveyInsurance Component (MEPS–IC) data available as the baseline for the average monthly cost of a health insurance policy. This baseline is adjusted by the annual percentage increase/decrease obtained from the most recent annual Kaiser Family Foundation and Health Research and Educational Trust (KFF/ HRET) Employer Health Benefits survey or other authoritative source that may be more accurate or appropriate. In 2017, MEPS–IC, available at www.meps.ahrq.gov, published the annual 2016 average total single premium per enrolled employee at private-sector establishments that provide health insurance. The figure published was $6,101. This figure is divided by 12-months to determine the cost per month of $508.42. The $508.42 is increased or decreased by the percentage change reported by the most recent KFF/HRET Employer Health Benefits Survey, available at www.kff.org.

of Health and Human Services (HHS).

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: HRSA is publishing this notice of petitions received under the 
National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (the program), as required 
by the Public Health Service (PHS) Act, as amended. While the Secretary 
of HHS is named as the respondent in all proceedings brought by the 
filing of petitions for compensation under the Program, the United 
States Court of Federal Claims is charged by statute with 
responsibility for considering and acting upon the petitions.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For information about requirements for 
filing petitions, and the Program in general, contact Lisa L. Reyes, 
Acting Clerk, United States Court of Federal Claims, 717 Madison Place 
NW., Washington, DC 20005, (202) 357-6400. For information on HRSA's 
role in the Program, contact the Director, National Vaccine Injury 
Compensation Program, 5600 Fishers Lane, Room 08N146B, Rockville, MD 
20857; (301) 443-6593, or visit our Web site at: http://www.hrsa.gov/vaccinecompensation/index.html.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The program provides a system of no-fault 
compensation for certain individuals who have been injured by specified 
childhood vaccines. Subtitle 2 of Title XXI of the PHS Act, 42 U.S.C. 
300aa-10 et seq., provides that those seeking compensation are to file 
a petition with the U.S. Court of Federal Claims and to serve a copy of 
the petition on the Secretary of HHS, who is named as the respondent in 
each proceeding. The Secretary has delegated this responsibility under 
the Program to HRSA. The Court is directed by statute to appoint 
special masters who take evidence, conduct hearings as appropriate, and 
make initial decisions as to eligibility for, and amount of, 
compensation.
    A petition may be filed with respect to injuries, disabilities, 
illnesses, conditions, and deaths resulting from vaccines described in 
the Vaccine Injury Table (the table) set forth at 42 CFR 100.3. This 
table lists for each covered childhood vaccine the conditions that may 
lead to compensation and, for each condition, the time period for 
occurrence of the first symptom or manifestation of onset or of 
significant aggravation after vaccine administration. Compensation may 
also be awarded for conditions not listed in the table and for 
conditions that are manifested outside the time periods specified in 
the Table, but only if the petitioner shows that the condition was 
caused by one of the listed vaccines.
    Section 2112(b)(2) of the PHS Act, 42 U.S.C. 300aa-12(b)(2), 
requires that ``[w]ithin 30 days after the Secretary receives service 
of any petition filed under section 2111 the Secretary shall publish 
notice of such petition in the Federal Register.'' Set forth below is a 
list of petitions received by HRSA on September 1, 2017, through 
September 30, 2017. This list provides the name of petitioner, city and 
state of vaccination (if unknown then city and state of person or 
attorney filing claim), and case number. In cases where the Court has 
redacted the name of a petitioner and/or the case number, the list 
reflects such redaction.
    Section 2112(b)(2) also provides that the special master ``shall 
afford all interested persons an opportunity to submit relevant, 
written information'' relating to the following:
    1. The existence of evidence ``that there is not a preponderance of 
the evidence that the illness, disability, injury, condition, or death 
described in the petition is due to factors unrelated to the 
administration of the vaccine described in the petition,'' and
    2. Any allegation in a petition that the petitioner either:
    a. ``[S]ustained, or had significantly aggravated, any illness, 
disability, injury, or condition not set forth in the Vaccine Injury 
Table but which was caused by'' one of the vaccines referred to in the 
Table, or
    b. ``[S]ustained, or had significantly aggravated, any illness, 
disability, injury, or condition set forth in the Vaccine Injury Table 
the first symptom or manifestation of the onset or significant 
aggravation of which did not occur within the time period set forth in 
the Table but which was caused by a vaccine'' referred to in the Table.
    In accordance with Section 2112(b)(2), all interested persons may

the case of the petitions listed below. Any person choosing to do so
