(For policy questions regarding this collection contact Yaakov Feinstein at 410–786–3137.) 4. Type of Information Collection Request: Extension of a currently approved collection; Title of Information Collection: Notification of FLS and CMS of Co-Located Medicare Providers; Use: Many long-term care hospitals (LTCHs) are co-located with other Medicare providers (acute care hospitals, inpatient rehabilitation facilities (IRFs), skilled nursing facilities (SNFs), inpatient psychiatric facilities (IPFs)), which could lead to potential gaming of the Medicare system based on inappropriate patient shifting. In regulations at 42 CFR 412.22(e)(3) and (h)(6) CMS requires LTCHs to notify Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) and CMS of co-located providers. The requirement regarding collection of information at § 412.22 concerning a LTCH’s (or a LTCH satellite’s) notification to its MAC and CMS of its co-located status is needed in order for Medicare to appropriately pay co-located hospitals-withinhospitals (HwHs) and satellites. Under §§ 412.22(e)(3) and (h)(6), an LTCH or a satellite of an LTCH that occupies space in a building used by another hospital, or in one or more entire buildings located on the same campus as buildings used by another hospital must notify its MAC and CMS in writing of its co-location within 60 days of its first cost reporting period that began on or after October 1, 2002. Form Number: CMS–10088 (OMB control number: 0938–0897); Frequency: Yearly; Affected Public: Private Sector (Business or other for-profit, not-for-profit institutions); Number of Respondents: 25; Total Annual Responses: 25; Total Annual Hours: 6.
