Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Collection; Comment Request, 54352-54354 [2018-23576]

Download as PDF 54352 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 209 / Monday, October 29, 2018 / Notices The annual burden for this information collection is estimated to be 572,791 hours. This represents an increase of 281,305 hours from the current burden estimate of 291,486 hours. This increase is not due to any new requirements imposed by the FDIC. Rather, it is due to FDIC’s reassessment of the burden hours associated with responding to the existing requirements of the Rule and to guidance, feedback, and additional requests for information by the FDIC as part of the iterative resolution planning process. The revised estimates are informed by feedback received from the CIDIs over the past year. Because submissions have been required no more frequently than biennially, the burden associated with the Annual Update has been multiplied by 2⁄3 to represent two Annual Update filings over the three-year period contemplated by this notice and renewal. Request for Comment Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the FDIC’s functions, including whether the information has practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the estimates of the burden of the information collection, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. All comments will become a matter of public record. Dated at Washington, DC, on October 23, 2018. Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. Robert E. Feldman, Executive Secretary.

Type of Information Collection Request: Extension without change of a currently approved collection; Title of Information Collection: Data Submission for the Federally-facilitated Exchange User Fee Adjustment; Use: Section 2713 of the Public Health Service Act requires coverage without cost sharing of certain preventive health services, including certain contraceptive services, in non-exempt, nongrandfathered group health plans and health insurance coverage. The final regulations establish rules under which the third party administrator of the plan would provide or arrange for a third party to provide separate contraceptive coverage to plan participants and beneficiaries without cost sharing, premium, fee, or other charge to plan participants or beneficiaries or to the eligible organization or its plan. Eligible organizations are required to self-certify that they are eligible for this accommodation and provide a copy of such self-certification to their third party administrators.

    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: Extension without change 
of a currently approved collection; Title of Information Collection: 
Data Submission for the Federally-facilitated Exchange User Fee 
Adjustment; Use: Section 2713 of the Public Health Service Act requires 
coverage without cost sharing of certain preventive health services, 
including certain contraceptive services, in non-exempt, non-
grandfathered group health plans and health insurance coverage. The 
final regulations establish rules under which the third party 
administrator of the plan would provide or arrange for a third party to 
provide separate contraceptive coverage to plan participants and 
beneficiaries without cost sharing, premium, fee, or other charge to 
plan participants or beneficiaries or to the eligible organization or 
its plan. Eligible organizations are required to self-certify that they 
are eligible for this accommodation and provide a copy of such self-
certification to their third party administrators. The final rules also 
set forth processes and standards to fund the payments for the 
contraceptive services that are provided for participants and 
beneficiaries in self-insured plans of eligible organizations under the 
accommodation described previously, through an adjustment in the FFE 
user fee payable by an issuer participating in an FFE.
    CMS will use the data collections from participating issuers and 
third party administrators to verify the total dollar amount for such 
payments for contraceptive services provided under this accommodation 
for the purpose of determining a participating issuer's user fee 
adjustment. The attestation that the payments for contraceptive 
services were made in compliance with 26 CFR 54.9815-2713A(b)(2) or 29 
CFR 2590.715-2713A(b)(2) will help ensure that the user fee adjustment 
is being utilized to provide contraceptive services for the self-
insured plans in accordance with the previously noted accommodation.
