ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: This notice announces a $599.00 calendar year (CY) 2021 application fee for institutional SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:07 Nov 20, 2020 Jkt 253001 providers that are initially enrolling in the Medicare or Medicaid program or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP); revalidating their Medicare, Medicaid, or CHIP enrollment; or adding a new Medicare practice location. This fee is required with any enrollment application submitted on or after January 1, 2021 and on or before December 31, 2021. DATES: The application fee announced in this notice is effective on January 1, 2021. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Melissa Singer, (410) 786–0365. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background In the February 2, 2011 Federal Register (76 FR 5862), we published a final rule with comment period titled ‘‘Medicare, Medicaid, and Children’s Health Insurance Programs; Additional Screening Requirements, Application Fees, Temporary Enrollment Moratoria, Payment Suspensions and Compliance Plans for Providers and Suppliers.’’ This rule finalized, among other things, provisions related to the submission of application fees as part of the Medicare, Medicaid, and CHIP provider enrollment processes. As provided in section 1866(j)(2)(C)(i) of the Social Security Act (the Act) and in 42 CFR 424.514, ‘‘institutional providers’’ that are initially enrolling in the Medicare or Medicaid programs or CHIP, revalidating their enrollment, or adding a new Medicare practice location are required to submit a fee with their enrollment application. An ‘‘institutional provider’’ for purposes of Medicare is defined at § 424.502 as ‘‘any provider or supplier that submits a paper Medicare enrollment application using the CMS–855A, CMS–855B (not including physician and non-physician practitioner organizations), CMS–855S, CMS–20134, or associated internetbased PECOS enrollment application.’’ As we explained in the February 2, 2011 final rule (76 FR 5914), in addition to the providers and suppliers subject to the application fee under Medicare, Medicaid-only and CHIP-only institutional providers would include nursing facilities, intermediate care facilities for persons with intellectual disabilities (ICF/IID), psychiatric residential treatment facilities, and may include other institutional provider types designated by a state in accordance with their approved state plan. As indicated in § 424.514 and § 455.460, the application fee is not required for either of the following: PO 00000 Frm 00061 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 • A Medicare physician or nonphysician practitioner submitting a CMS–855I. • A prospective or revalidating Medicaid or CHIP provider— ++ Who is an individual physician or non-physician practitioner; or ++ That is enrolled in Title XVIII of the Act or another state’s Title XIX or XXI plan and has paid the application fee to a Medicare contractor or another state. II. Provisions of the Notice Section 1866(j)(2)(C)(i)(I) of the Act established a $500 application fee for institutional providers in calendar year (CY) 2010. Consistent with section 1866(j)(2)(C)(i)(II) of the Act, § 424.514(d)(2) states that for CY 2011 and subsequent years, the preceding year’s fee will be adjusted by the percentage change in the consumer price index (CPI) for all urban consumers (all items; United States city average, CPI U) for the 12 month period ending on June 30 of the previous year. Each year since 2011, accordingly, we have published in the Federal Register an announcement of the application fee amount for the forthcoming CY based on the formula noted previously. Most recently, in the November 12, 2019 Federal Register (84 FR 61058), we published a notice announcing a fee amount for the period of January 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020 of $595.00. The $595.00 fee amount for CY 2020 was used to calculate the fee amount for 2021 as specified in § 424.514(d)(2). According to Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) data, the CPU–U increase for the period of July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020 was 0.6 percent. As required by § 424.514(d)(2), the preceding year’s fee of $595 will be adjusted by the CPI–U of 0.6 percent. This results in a CY 2021 application fee amount of $598.57 ($595 × 1.006). As we must round this to the nearest whole dollar amount, the resultant application fee amount for CY 2021 is $599. III. Collection of Information Requirements This document does not impose information collection requirements, that is, reporting, recordkeeping, or third-party disclosure requirements. Consequently, there is no need for review by the Office of Management and Budget under the authority of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. However, it does reference previously approved information collections. The Forms CMS–855A, CMS–855B, and CMS–855I are approved under OMB control number 0938–0685; the Form E:\FR\FM\23NON1.SGM 23NON1
