Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Collection; Comment Request, 52304-52305 [2017-24524]

Download as PDF 52304 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 217 / Monday, November 13, 2017 / Notices This project aligns with National HIV/ AIDS Strategy 2020 and Health People 2020 objectives. This structural intervention aligns with the OMB’s emphasis on application of behavioral insights in that it restructures the context (i.e., after HIV testing) in which health-related decision-making (i.e., health insurance enrollment) occurs in order to promote the selection of beneficial options. The proposed health insurance enrollment assistance project has the potential for widespread health improvements for Black and Hispanic MSM and Transgender persons regardless of their HIV status. If eligible and interested in participating, individuals will complete the Participant Enrollment Form, which will take approximately 35 minutes to complete. Researchers then will offer inperson health insurance enrollment to randomized intervention arm participants. This enrollment will take a maximum of 60 minutes to complete. The study’s in-person health insurance enrollment assistance will take the same amount of time as standard practice health insurance enrollment assistance. The total estimated annualized hourly burden anticipated for this study is 1,458 hours. The study will enroll 1,000 participants over 12 months to reach adequate power calculations (500 into the intervention arm, and 500 into the control arm). After an HIV testing session at an outreach event or clinic visit, a partneragency staff person will invite an individual to participate in the study. If interested, participants will complete a consent form. Staff will screen individuals using the Eligibility Form, which will take approximately five minutes to complete. Researchers would need to screen approximately 1,500 individuals in order to identify and enroll 1,000 eligible study participants.

CAHs that have DPUs must comply with all of the hospital CoPs on these units.

Demonstration and Prior Authorization Demonstration

    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.

Information Collection

    1. Type of Information Collection Request: Reinstatement without 
change of a previously approved collection; Title of Information 
Collection: Hospital Conditions of Participation and Supporting 
Regulations; Use: The information collection requirements described in 
this information collection request are needed to implement the 
Medicare and Medicaid conditions of participation (CoP) for 4,890 
accredited and non-accredited hospitals and an additional 101 critical 
access hospitals (CAHs) that have distinct part psychiatric or 
rehabilitation units (DPUs). CAHs that have DPUs must comply with all 
of the hospital CoPs on these units. Thus, this package reflects the 
burden for a total of 4,991 hospitals (that is, 4,890 accredited/non-
accredited hospitals and 101 CAHs which include 81 CAHs that have 
psychiatric DPUs and 20 CAHs that have rehabilitation DPUs). The 
information collection requirements for the remaining 1,183 CAHs have 
been approved in a separate package under CMS-10239 (OMB control 
number: 0938-1043).
    The CoPs and accompanying regulatory requirements are used by our 
surveyors as a basis for determining whether a hospital qualifies for a 
provider agreement under Medicare and Medicaid. CMS and the health care 
industry believe that the availability to the facility of the type of 
records and general content of records is standard medical practice and 
is necessary to ensure the well-being and safety of patients and 
professional treatment accountability. Form Number: CMS-R-48 (OMB 
control number: 0938-0328); Frequency: Yearly; Affected Public: Private 
sector (Business or other for-profit); Number of Respondents: 4,991; 
Total Annual Responses: 1,342,424; Total Annual Hours: 18,840,617. (For 
policy questions regarding this collection contact Scott Cooper at 410-
786-9465.)
    2. Type of Information Collection Request: Extension of a currently 
approved collection; Title of Information Collection: Fee-for-Service 
Recovery Audit Prepayment Review Demonstration and Prior Authorization 
Demonstration; Use: OMB approved the collections required for two 
demonstrations of prepayment review and prior authorization. The first 
demonstration allows Medicare Recovery Auditors to review claims on a 
pre-payment basis in certain States. The second demonstration 
established a prior authorization program for Power Mobility Device 
claims in certain States. The first demonstration has ended, so we are 
only extending the collection of information for the second 
demonstration, prior authorization of power mobility devices.
    For the Prior Authorization of Power Mobility Devices (PMDs) 
Demonstration, we are piloting prior authorization for PMDs. Prior 
authorization will allow the applicable documentation that supports a 
claim to be submitted before the item is delivered. For prior 
authorization, relevant documentation for review is submitted before 
the item is delivered or the service is rendered. CMS will conduct this 
demonstration in California, Florida, Illinois, Michigan, New York, 
North Carolina, Texas, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Louisiana, Missouri, 
Maryland, New Jersey, Indiana, Kentucky, Georgia, Tennessee, 
Washington, and Arizona based on beneficiary address as reported to the 
Social Security Administration and recorded in the Common Working File 
(CWF). For the demonstration, a prior authorization request can be 
completed by the (ordering) physician or treating practitioner and 
submitted to the appropriate Durable Medical Equipment Medicare 
Administrative Contractor (DME MAC) for an initial decision. The 
supplier may also submit the request on behalf of the physician or 
treating practitioner. The physician, treating practitioner or supplier 
who submits the request on behalf of the physician or treating 
practitioner, is referred to as the ``submitter.'' Under this 
demonstration, the submitter will submit to the DME MAC a request for 
prior authorization and all relevant documentation to support Medicare 
coverage of the PMD item.
    Form Number: CMS-10421 (OMB control number: 0938-1169); Frequency: 
Occasionally; Affected Public: State, Local or Tribal Governments; 
Number of Respondents: 50,500; Total Annual Responses: 50,500; Total
