Proposed Information Collection Activity; Tribal Budget and Narrative Justification Template (New Collection), 7308-7309 [2020-02386]

Download as PDF 7308 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 26 / Friday, February 7, 2020 / Notices relying on automated review systems for processing initial applications to become a PACE organization and expansion applications for existing PACE organizations. In addition, the final rule will modify the PACE regulations to eliminate the need for PACE organizations to request waivers for a number of the most commonly waived provisions. This latter change is expected to reduce burden and improve efficiency for POs, state administering agencies, and CMS. In addition to codifying the current automated processes for the submission and review of both initial and service area expansion applications, this rule modifies existing regulatory provisions and requirements. As a result, certain attestations associated with the application are no longer applicable, and others need to be updated to reflect updated regulatory requirements. We are also making minor tweaks to certain document upload requirements for clarification purposes based on experience reviewing applications.

In the final regulation, CMS addresses standards related to eligibility, including the verification and eligibility determination process, eligibility redeterminations, options for states to rely on HHS to make eligibility determinations for certificates of exemption, and reporting.

The audience for this training conference includes attendees from State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) and Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) programs, which are two nationally recognized programs that provide Medicare information and counseling to Medicare beneficiaries and help fight Medicare fraud through prevention and education. Grantee leadership is required to attend this training annually to ensure they receive critical information and technical assistance needed to help them successfully meet the requirements of their grant awards. Grantees are encouraged to bring up to three (3) people from each program. Programs operate in each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands.
