Preventing Medicare improper payments requires the active involvement of every component of CMS and effective coordination with its partners including various Medicare contractors and providers.

Medicare contractors request the information from providers/ suppliers submitting claims for payment when data analysis indicates aberrant billing patterns or other information which may present a vulnerability to the Medicare program.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The IHS has requested emergency review of 
this information collection by OMB, as authorized by section 3507(j) of 
the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. The Agency gathers comments 
concerning: (a) The necessity of this information collection for the 
proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether 
the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the 
agency's estimate of the burden (hours and cost) of the collection of 
information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions 
used; (c) ways we could enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of 
the information to be collected; and (d) ways we could minimize the
