Failure to register by the dates identified could result in the inability to attend the CPSTF meeting in person. Those unable to attend the meeting in person are able to do so via Webcast. CDC will send the Webcast URL to registrants upon receipt of their registration. All meeting attendees must register by February 8, 2019 to receive the webcast information. CDC will email webcast information from the CPSTF@ cdc.gov mailbox. To register for the meeting, whether to attend in person or via webcast, individuals should send an email to CPSTF@cdc.gov and include the following information: Name, title, organization name, organization address, phone, email, and whether attending in person or via webcast. Public Comment: A public comment period, limited to three minutes per person, will follow the CPSTF’s discussion of each systematic review. Individuals wishing to make public comments must indicate their desire to do so with their registration by providing their name, organizational affiliation, and the topic to be addressed (if known). Public comments will become part of the meeting summary. Public comment is not possible via Webcast. Background on the CPSTF: The CPSTF is an independent, nonfederal panel whose members are appointed by the CDC Director. CPSTF members represent a broad range of research, practice, and policy expertise in prevention, wellness, health promotion, and public health. The CPSTF was convened in 1996 by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to identify community preventive programs, services, and policies that increase healthy longevity, save lives and dollars, and improve Americans’ quality of life. CDC is mandated to provide ongoing administrative, research, and technical support for the operations of the CPSTF. During its meetings, the CPSTF considers the findings of systematic reviews on existing research and practice-based evidence and issues recommendations. CPSTF recommendations are not mandates for compliance or spending. Instead, they provide information about evidence-based options that decision makers and stakeholders can consider when they are determining what best meets the specific needs, preferences, available resources, and constraints of their jurisdictions and constituents. The CPSTF’s recommendations, along with the systematic reviews of the evidence on which they are based, are compiled in the The Community Guide. VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:23 Jan 31, 2019 Jkt 247001 Matters proposed for discussion: Cardiovascular Disease Prevention (Pharmacy-Based Interventions to Increase Medication Adherence); Mental Health (School-Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Programs for the Prevention of Depression and Anxiety Disorders); Cancer Prevention and Control (Community Health Worker Interventions to Improve Screening Rates for Breast, Colorectal, and Cervical Cancer); Health Equity (Supportive Housing Policies to Address Homelessness); Physical Activity (Effectiveness of eHealth Interventions for Increasing Physical Activity Among Older Adults and an Economic Review of Interventions to Increase Active Travel to School). The agenda is subject to change without notice. Roybal Campus Security Guidelines: The Edward R. Roybal Campus is the headquarters of the CDC and is located at 1600 Clifton Road NE, Atlanta, Georgia. The meeting is being held in a Federal government building; therefore, Federal security measures are applicable. All meeting attendees must register by the dates outlined under MEETING ACCESSABILITY. In planning your arrival time, please take into account the need to park and clear security. All visitors must enter the Edward R. Roybal Campus through the front entrance on Clifton Road. Vehicles may be searched, and the guard force will then direct visitors to the designated parking area. Upon arrival at the facility, visitors must present government-issued photo identification (e.g., a valid federal identification badge, state driver’s license, state non-driver’s identification card, or passport). Non-United States citizens must complete the required security paperwork prior to the meeting date and must present a valid passport, visa, Permanent Resident Card, or other type of work authorization document upon arrival at the facility. Instructions for completing the required security paperwork will be provided after registration. All persons entering the building must pass through a metal detector. CDC Security personnel will issue a visitor’s ID badge at the entrance to Building 19. Visitors may receive an escort to the meeting room. All items brought to HHS/CDC are subject to inspection.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (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 (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)) requires federal agencies to publish a 30-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 that summarizes the following proposed collection(s) of information for public comment: 1. Type of Information Collection Request: Reinstatement without change of a previously approved collection; Title of Information Collection: Generic Clearance for the Health Care Payment Learning and Action Network; Use: The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), through the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation, develops and tests innovative new payment and service delivery models in accordance with the requirements of section 1115A and in consideration of the opportunities and factors set forth in section 1115A(b)(2) of the Act. To date, CMS has built a portfolio of models (in operation or already announced) that have attracted participation from a broad array of health care providers, states, payers, and other stakeholders. During the development of models, CMS builds on ideas received from stakeholders—consulting with clinical and analytical experts, as well as with representatives of relevant federal and state agencies. CMS will continue to partner with stakeholders across the health care system to catalyze transformation through the use of alternative payment models. To this end, CMS launched the Health Care Payment Learning and Action Network, an effort to accelerate the transition to alternative payment VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:23 Jan 31, 2019 Jkt 247001 models, identify best practices in their implementation, collaborate with payers, providers, consumers, purchasers, and other stakeholders, and monitor the adoption of value-based alternative payment models across the health care system. A system wide transition to alternative payment models will strengthen the ability of CMS to implement existing models and design new models that improve quality and decrease costs for CMS beneficiaries. The information collected from LAN participants will be used by the CMS Innovation Center to potentially inform the design, selection, testing, modification, and expansion of innovative payment and service delivery models in accordance with the requirements of section 1115A, while monitoring the percentage of payments tied to alternative payment models across the U.S. health care system. In addition, the requested information will be made publically available so that LAN participants (payers, providers, consumers, employers, state agencies, and patients) can use the information to inform decision making and better understand market dynamics in relation to alternative payment models. Form Number: CMS–10575 (OMB control number: 0938–1297); Frequency: Occasionally; Affected Public: Individuals; Private Sector (Business or other For-profit and Not-for-profit institutions), State, Local and Tribal Governments; Number of Respondents: 30,110; Total Annual Responses: 23,110; Total Annual Hours: 25,917. (For policy questions regarding this collection contact Dustin Allison at 410–786–8830.) 2. Type of Information Collection Request: Extension of a currently approved collection; Title of Information Collection: Information Collection for Transparency in Coverage Reporting by Qualified Health Plan Issuers; Use: Section 1311(e)(3) of the Affordable Care Act requires issuers of Qualified Health Plans (QHPs), to make available and submit transparency in coverage data. This data collection would collect certain information from QHP issuers in Federally-facilitated Exchanges and State-based Exchanges that rely on the federal IT platform (i.e., HealthCare.gov). HHS anticipates that consumers may use this information to inform plan selection. As stated in the final rule Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act; Establishment of Exchanges and Qualified Health Plans; Exchange Standards for Employers (77 FR 18310; March 27, 2012), broader implementation will continue to be addressed in separate rulemaking issued PO 00000 Frm 00105 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 1151 by HHS, and the Departments of Labor and the Treasury (the Departments). Consistent with Public Health Service Act (PHS Act) section 2715A, which largely extends the transparency reporting provisions set forth in section 1311(e)(3) to non-grandfathered group health plans (including large group and self-insured health plans) and health insurance issuers offering group and individual health insurance coverage (non-QHP issuers), the Departments intend to propose other transparency reporting requirements at a later time, through a separate rulemaking conducted by the Departments, for nonQHP issuers and non-grandfathered group health plans. Those proposed reporting requirements may differ from those prescribed in the HHS proposal under section 1311(e)(3), and will take into account differences in markets, reporting requirements already in existence for non-QHPs (including group health plans), and other relevant factors. The Departments also intend to streamline reporting under multiple reporting provisions and reduce unnecessary duplication. The Departments intend to implement any transparency reporting requirements applicable to non-QHP issuers and nongrandfathered group health plans only after notice and comment, and after giving those issuers and plans sufficient time, following the publication of final rules, to come into compliance with those requirements.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 
(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 (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)) requires 
federal agencies to publish a 30-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 that 
summarizes the following proposed collection(s) of information for 
public comment:
    1. Type of Information Collection Request: Reinstatement without 
change of a previously approved collection; Title of Information 
Collection: Generic Clearance for the Health Care Payment Learning and 
Action Network; Use: The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services 
(CMS), through the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation, 
develops and tests innovative new payment and service delivery models 
in accordance with the requirements of section 1115A and in 
consideration of the opportunities and factors set forth in section 
1115A(b)(2) of the Act. To date, CMS has built a portfolio of models 
(in operation or already announced) that have attracted participation 
from a broad array of health care providers, states, payers, and other 
stakeholders. During the development of models, CMS builds on ideas 
received from stakeholders--consulting with clinical and analytical 
experts, as well as with representatives of relevant federal and state 
agencies.
    CMS will continue to partner with stakeholders across the health 
care system to catalyze transformation through the use of alternative 
payment models. To this end, CMS launched the Health Care Payment 
Learning and Action Network, an effort to accelerate the transition to 
alternative payment models, identify best practices in their 
implementation, collaborate with payers, providers, consumers, 
purchasers, and other stakeholders, and monitor the adoption of value-
based alternative payment models across the health care system. A 
system wide transition to alternative payment models will strengthen 
the ability of CMS to implement existing models and design new models 
that improve quality and decrease costs for CMS beneficiaries.
    The information collected from LAN participants will be used by the 
CMS Innovation Center to potentially inform the design, selection, 
testing, modification, and expansion of innovative payment and service 
delivery models in accordance with the requirements of section 1115A, 
while monitoring the percentage of payments tied to alternative payment 
models across the U.S. health care system. In addition, the requested 
information will be made publically available so that LAN participants 
(payers, providers, consumers, employers, state agencies, and patients) 
can use the information to inform decision making and better understand 
market dynamics in relation to alternative payment models. Form Number: 
CMS-10575 (OMB control number: 0938-1297); Frequency: Occasionally; 
Affected Public: Individuals; Private Sector (Business or other For-
profit and Not-for-profit institutions), State, Local and Tribal 
Governments; Number of Respondents: 30,110; Total Annual Responses: 
23,110; Total Annual Hours: 25,917. (For policy questions regarding 
this collection contact Dustin Allison at 410-786-8830.)
    2. Type of Information Collection Request: Extension of a currently 
approved collection; Title of Information Collection: Information 
Collection for Transparency in Coverage Reporting by Qualified Health 
Plan Issuers; Use: Section 1311(e)(3) of the Affordable Care Act 
requires issuers of Qualified Health Plans (QHPs), to make available 
and submit transparency in coverage data. This data collection would 
collect certain information from QHP issuers in Federally-facilitated 
Exchanges and State-based Exchanges that rely on the federal IT 
platform (i.e., HealthCare.gov). HHS anticipates that consumers may use 
this information to inform plan selection.
    As stated in the final rule Patient Protection and Affordable Care 
Act; Establishment of Exchanges and Qualified Health Plans; Exchange 
Standards for Employers (77 FR 18310; March 27, 2012), broader 
implementation will continue to be addressed in separate rulemaking 
issued by HHS, and the Departments of Labor and the Treasury (the 
Departments).
    Consistent with Public Health Service Act (PHS Act) section 2715A, 
which largely extends the transparency reporting provisions set forth 
in section 1311(e)(3) to non-grandfathered group health plans 
(including large group and self-insured health plans) and health 
insurance issuers offering group and individual health insurance 
coverage (non-QHP issuers), the Departments intend to propose other 
transparency reporting requirements at a later time, through a separate 
rulemaking conducted by the Departments, for non-QHP issuers and non-
grandfathered group health plans. Those proposed reporting requirements 
may differ from those prescribed in the HHS proposal under section 
1311(e)(3), and will take into account differences in markets, 
reporting requirements already in existence for non-QHPs (including 
group health plans), and other relevant factors. The Departments also 
intend to streamline reporting under multiple reporting provisions and 
reduce unnecessary duplication. The Departments intend to implement any 
transparency reporting requirements applicable to non-QHP issuers and 
non-grandfathered group health plans only after notice and comment, and 
after giving those issuers and plans sufficient time, following the 
publication of final rules, to come into compliance with those 
requirements. Form Number: CMS-10572 (OMB control number: 0938-1310); 
Frequency: Annually; Affected Public: Private Sector (Business or other 
for-profits); Number of Respondents: 160; Number of Responses: 160; 
Total Annual Hours: 10,880. (For questions regarding this collection 
contact Valisha Jackson at (301) 492- 5145.)
