Agreement to Sell Property—20 CFR 416.1240–1245—0960–0127. Individuals or couples who are otherwise eligible for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments, but whose resources exceed the allowable limit, may receive conditional payments if they agree to dispose of the excess non-liquid resources and make repayments. SSA uses Form SSA–8060– U3 to document this agreement, and to ensure the individuals understand their obligations. Respondents are applicants for, and recipients of, SSI payments who will be disposing of excess non-liquid resources. Type of Request: Revision of an OMBapproved information collection.

VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:43 Apr 27, 2020 Jkt 250001 Sponsored by SSA, the SED builds on the success of the intervention designed PO 00000 Frm 00087 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 for the Mental Health Treatment Study (MHTS) previously funded by SSA. The E:\FR\FM\28APN1.SGM 28APN1 23588 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 82 / Tuesday, April 28, 2020 / Notices MHTS provides integrated mental health and vocational services to disability beneficiaries with mental illness. The SED offers the same services to individuals with mental illness who SSA denied Social Security disability benefits. SSA seeks to determine whether offering this evidence-based package of integrated vocational and mental health services to denied disability applicants fosters employment that leads to selfsufficiency, improved mental health and quality of life, and reduced demand for disability benefits. The SED uses a randomized controlled trial to compare the outcomes of two treatment groups, and a control group. Study participation spans 36 months beginning on the day following the date of randomization to one of the three study groups. The SED study population consists of individuals aged 18 to 50 who apply for disability benefits alleging a mental illness and the initial decision is a denial of benefits in the past 60 days. The SED will enroll up to 1,000 participants in each of the three study arms for a total of 3,000 participants: 40 participants in each of three study arms for the 20 urban sites equaling an n of 2,400 urban site participants; and 20 participants in each of three arms for the 10 rural sites equaling an n of 600 rural site participants. We randomly select and assign each enrolled participant to one of three study arms: • Full-Service Treatment (n = 1,000). The multi-component service model from the MHTS comprises the FullService Treatment. At its core are an Individual Placement and Support (IPS) supported employment specialist and behavioral health specialist providing IPS supported employment services integrated with behavioral health care. Participants in the full-service treatment group will also receive the services of a Nurse Care Coordinator who coordinates Systematic Medication Management services, as well assistance with: Out-of-pocket expenses associated with prescription behavioral health medications; work-related expenses; and services and treatment not covered by the participant’s health insurance. • Basic-Service Treatment (n = 1,000). The Basic-Service Treatment model leaves intact IPS supported employment integrated with behavioral health services as the centerpiece of the intervention arm. The Basic-Service Treatment is essentially the Full-Service model without the services of the Nurse Care Coordinator, Systematic Medication Management, and the funds associated with out-of-pocket expenses for prescription behavioral health medications. • Usual Services (n = 1,000). This study arm represents a control group against which the two treatment groups we can compare. Participants assigned to this group seek services as they normally would (or would not) in their community. However, at the time of randomization, each Usual Service participant will receive a comprehensive manual describing mental health and vocational services in their locale, along with state and national resources. This study will test the two treatment conditions against each other and against the control group on multiple outcomes of policy interest to SSA. The (1) Pre-visit environmental scans in order to understand the local context in which SED services are embedded; (2) independent fidelity assessments in conjunction with those carried out by state Mental Health/Vocational Rehabilitation staff; (3) key informant interviews with the IPS specialist, the nurse care coordinator, the case manager, and facility director; (4) focus groups with participants in the FullService and Basic-Service Treatment groups; and (5) ethnographic data collection consisting of observations in the natural environment and personcentered interviews with participants and non-participants. The respondents are study participants and nonparticipants, family members, IPS specialists, nurse care coordinators, case managers, and facility directors.

arms for the 20 urban sites equaling an n of 2,400 urban site 
participants; and 20 participants in each of three arms for the 10 
rural sites equaling an n of 600 rural site participants. We randomly 
select and assign each enrolled participant to one of three study arms:
     Full-Service Treatment (n = 1,000). The multi-component 
service model from the MHTS comprises the Full-Service Treatment. At 
its core are an Individual Placement and Support (IPS) supported 
employment specialist and behavioral health specialist providing IPS 
supported employment services integrated with behavioral health care. 
Participants in the full-service treatment group will also receive the 
services of a Nurse Care Coordinator who coordinates Systematic 
Medication Management services, as well assistance with: Out-of-pocket 
expenses associated with prescription behavioral health medications; 
work-related expenses; and services and treatment not covered by the 
participant's health insurance.
     Basic-Service Treatment (n = 1,000). The Basic-Service 
Treatment model leaves intact IPS supported employment integrated with 
behavioral health services as the centerpiece of the intervention arm. 
The Basic-Service Treatment is essentially the Full-Service model 
without the services of the Nurse Care Coordinator, Systematic 
Medication Management, and the funds associated with out-of-pocket 
expenses for prescription behavioral health medications.
     Usual Services (n = 1,000). This study arm represents a 
control group against which the two treatment groups we can compare. 
Participants assigned to this group seek services as they normally 
would (or would not) in their community. However, at the time of 
randomization, each Usual Service participant will receive a 
comprehensive manual describing mental health and vocational services 
in their locale, along with state and national resources.
    This study will test the two treatment conditions against each 
other and against the control group on multiple outcomes of policy 
interest to SSA. The key outcomes of interest include: (1) Employment; 
(2) earnings; (3) income; (4) mental status; (5) quality of life; (6) 
health services utilization; and (7) SSA disability benefit receipt and 
amount. SSA is also interested in the study take up rate 
(participation), knowing who enrolls (and who does not), and fidelity 
to evidence-based treatments, among other aspects of implementation. 
Data collection for the evaluation of the SED will consist of the 
following activities: Baseline in-person participant interviews; 
quarterly participant telephone interviews; receipt of SSA 
administrative record data; and collection of site-level program data. 
Evaluation team members will also conduct site visits involving:
    (1) Pre-visit environmental scans in order to understand the local 
context in which SED services are embedded; (2) independent fidelity 
assessments in conjunction with those carried out by state Mental 
Health/Vocational Rehabilitation staff; (3) key informant interviews 
with the IPS specialist, the nurse care coordinator, the case manager, 
and facility director; (4) focus groups with participants in the Full-
Service and Basic-Service Treatment groups; and (5) ethnographic data 
collection consisting of observations in the natural environment and 
person-centered interviews with participants and non-participants. The 
respondents are study participants and non-participants, family 
members, IPS specialists, nurse care coordinators, case managers, and 
facility directors.
    Type of Request: Revision of an OMB-approved information 
collection.

* We based these figures on average hourly wage for disabled workers and social and human service workers.
** This figure does not represent actual costs that SSA is imposing on recipients of Social Security payments to complete this application; rather,
  these are theoretical opportunity costs for the additional time respondents will spend to complete the application. There is no actual charge to
  respondents to complete the application.
