The term ‘‘collection of information’’ is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) and 5 CFR 1320.3(c) and includes agency requests or requirements that members of the public submit reports, keep records, or provide information to a third party. Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)) requires federal agencies to publish a 30-day notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including each proposed extension or reinstatement of an existing collection of information, before submitting the collection to OMB for approval. To comply with this requirement, CMS is publishing this notice that summarizes the following proposed collection(s) of information for public comment: 1. Type of Information Collection Request: Revision of a currently approved collection; Title of Information Collection: Transcatheter Valve Therapy (TVT) Registry; Use: The data collection is required by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) National Coverage Determination (NCD) entitled, ‘‘Transcatheter Edge-to-Edge Repair (TEER) for Mitral Valve Regurgitation’’ and was previously entitled ‘‘Transcatheter Mitral Valve Repair (TMVR)’’. Effective January 19, 2021, CMS updated this NCD to expand coverage to functional mitral regurgitation (MR). Previously, coverage was limited to degenerative MR. To more precisely define the treatment addressed in this NCD, we replaced the term TMVR with TEER. The TEER device is only covered when specific conditions are met including that the heart team and hospital are submitting data in a prospective, national, audited registry. The data includes patient, practitioner and facility level variables that predict outcomes such as all-cause mortality and quality of life. In order to remove the data collection requirement under this coverage with evidence development (CED) NCD or make any other changes to the existing policy, we must formally reopen and reconsider the policy. We are continuing to review and analyze the data collected since the original NCD was effective in 2014 and following the update in 2021.
