(For policy questions regarding this collection contact Charlene Parks at 410–786–8684.) 2. Type of Information Collection Request: Extension of a currently approved collection; Title of Information Collection: Health Reimbursement Arrangements and Other Account-Based Group Health Plans; Use: On June 20, 2019, the Department of the Treasury, the Department of Labor, and the Department of Health and Human Services (collectively, the Departments) issued final regulations titled ‘‘Health Reimbursement Arrangements and Other Account-Based Group Health Plans’’ (84 FR 28888) under section 2711 of the PHS Act and the health nondiscrimination provisions of HIPAA, Public Law 104–191 (HIPAA nondiscrimination provisions). The regulations expand the use of health reimbursement arrangements and other account-based group health plans (collectively referred to as HRAs). In general, the regulations expand the use of HRAs by eliminating the current prohibition on integrating HRAs with individual health insurance coverage, thereby permitting employers to offer individual coverage HRAs to employees that can be integrated with individual health insurance coverage or Medicare. Under the regulations employees will be permitted to use amounts in an individual coverage HRA to pay expenses for medical care (including premiums for individual health insurance coverage and Medicare), subject to certain requirements. This information collection includes provisions related to substantiation of individual health insurance coverage (45 CFR 146.123(c)(5)), the notice requirement for individual coverage HRAs (45 CFR 146.123(c)(6)), and notification of termination of coverage (45 CFR 146.123(c)(1)(iii)). Form Number: CMS–10704 (OMB Control Number 0938–1361); Frequency: Annually; Affected Public: Private Sector, State Governments; Number of Respondents: 2,005; Total Annual Responses: 273,492; Total Annual Hours: 6,016. (For policy questions regarding this collection contact Usree Bandyopadhyay at 410–786–6650.) 3. Type of Information Collection Request: Extension without change of a currently approved collection; Title of Information Collection: Affordable Care Act Internal Claims and Appeals and External Review Procedures for Nongrandfathered Group Health Plans and Issuers and Individual Market Issuers; Use: The information collection requirements ensure that claimants receive adequate information regarding the plan’s claims procedures and the plan’s handling of specific benefit claims. Claimants need to understand plan procedures and plan decisions in order to appropriately request benefits and/or appeal benefit denials. The information collected in connection with the HHS-administered federal external review process is collected by HHS, and is used to provide claimants with an independent external review. Form Number: CMS–10338 (OMB control number: 0938–1099); Frequency: Occasionally; Affected Public: State, Local, or Tribal Governments; Number of Respondents: 109,653; Total Annual Responses: 4,711; Total Annual Hours: 1,195,626.

Casey: Final Debarment Order AGENCY: Food and Drug Administration, HHS. ACTION: Notice. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is issuing an order under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) debarring James R. Casey for a period of 5 years from importing articles of food or offering such articles for importation into the United States. FDA bases this order on a finding that Mr. Casey was khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:49 Nov 27, 2019 Jkt 250001 convicted, as defined in the FD&C Act, of a felony count under Federal law for conduct relating to the importation into the United States of an article of food. Mr. Casey was given notice of the proposed permanent debarment and an opportunity to request a hearing within the timeframe prescribed by regulation. As of June 30, 2019 (thirty days after receipt of the notice), Mr. Casey had not responded. Mr. Casey’s failure to respond and request a hearing constitutes a waiver of his right to a hearing concerning this matter. DATES: This order is applicable November 29, 2019. ADDRESSES: Submit applications for termination of debarment to the Division of Dockets Management, Food and Drug Administration, 5630 Fishers Lane, Rm. 1061, Rockville, MD 20852. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jaime Espinosa (ELEM–4029) Division of Enforcement, Office of Strategic Planning and Operational Policy, Office of Regulatory Affairs, Food and Drug Administration, 12420 Parklawn Dr., Rockville, MD 20857 or at debarments@ fda.hhs.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background Section 306(b)(1)(C) of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 335a(b)(1)(C)) permits FDA to debar an individual from importing an article of food or offering such an article for import into the United States if FDA finds, as required by section 306(b)(3)(A) of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 335a(b)(3)(A)), that the individual has been convicted of a felony for conduct relating to the importation into the United States of any food. On January 9, 2019, Mr. Casey was convicted as defined in section 306(l)(1)(B) of the FD&C Act, in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, when the court accepted his plea of guilty and entered judgment against him for the offense of conspiracy to violate the Lacey Act in violation of 18 U.S.C. 371 and 16 U.S.C. 3372(d) and 3373(d)(3)(A)(ii). FDA’s finding that the debarment is appropriate is based on the felony conviction referenced herein. The factual basis for this conviction is as follows: As contained in the Stipulation of Facts incorporated into Mr. Casey’s Plea Agreement, filed on September 26, 2018, from on or about 2010 to June 2015, while serving as the owner, operator, and President of Casey’s Seafood, Inc. (‘‘the company’’), Mr. Casey regularly purchased foreign crab meat from a variety of sources and from a number of different countries. Mr. PO 00000 Frm 00044 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 65819 Casey also purchased foreign crab meat that had been recalled, returned, or that was approaching or beyond its posted ‘‘best used by’’ dates. Mr. Casey directed company employees to unpack the foreign crab meat from containers and re-pack the crab meat into company containers, all of which were labeled ‘‘Product of USA.’’ During that time period, employees routinely emptied foreign crab meat onto tables, comingling crab meat from different sources, and then re-packaged the crab meat into company containers, all of which were labeled ‘‘Product of USA.’’ From on or about July 1, 2012 and continuing until June 17, 2015, Mr. Casey caused to be sold at least 367, 765 pounds of crab meat falsely labeled ‘‘Product of USA’’ with a total wholesale value of approximately $4, 324, 916. As a result of this conviction, FDA sent Mr. Casey by certified mail on May 22, 2019, a notice proposing to debar him a period of 5 years from importing articles of food or offering such articles for import into the United States. The proposal was based on a finding under section 306(b)(1)(C) of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 335a(b)(1)(C)) that Mr. Casey’s felony conviction of conspiracy to violate the Lacey Act in violation of 18 U.S.C. 371 and 16 U.S.C. 3372(d) and 3373(d)(3)(A)(ii) constitutes conduct relating to the importation into the United States of an article of food because the offense he committed involved falsely labeling crab meat that was imported from a number of foreign countries as ‘‘Product of USA.’’ The proposal was also based on a determination, after consideration of the relevant factors set forth in section 306(c)(3) of the FD&C Act, that Mr. Casey should be subject to a 5-year period of debarment. The proposal also offered Mr. Casey an opportunity to request a hearing, providing him 30 days from the date of receipt of the letter in which to file the request, and advised him that failure to request a hearing constituted a waiver of the opportunity for a hearing and of any contentions concerning this action. Mr. Casey failed to respond within the timeframe prescribed by regulation and has, therefore, waived his opportunity for a hearing and waived any contentions concerning his debarment (21 CFR part 12). II. Findings and Order Therefore, the Assistant Commissioner, Office of Human and Animal Food Operations, under section 306(b)(1)(C) of the FD&C Act, under authority delegated to the Assistant Commissioner, finds that Mr. Casey has E:\FR\FM\29NON1.SGM 29NON1
