Proposed Information Collection Activity; Mother and Infant Home Visiting Program Evaluation (MIHOPE): Long-Term Follow-Up, Kindergarten Data Collection (MIHOPE-K) (OMB #0970-0402), 53061-53062 [2021-20798]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 183 / Friday, September 24, 2021 / Notices (SUPPORT) for Patients and Communities Act Section 1003 Demonstration Evaluation; Use: Section 1003 of the SUPPORT Act authorizes the Secretary of HHS, in consultation with the Director of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and the Assistant Secretary for Mental Health and Substance Use from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), to conduct a 54-month demonstration project (hereinafter, ‘‘the Demonstration’’) which is designed to increase the capacity of Medicaid providers to deliver substance use disorder (SUD) treatment and recovery services. Section 1003 also requires an evaluation of the demonstration. The evaluation is designed to assess: • The effectiveness of the Demonstration in increasing the capacity of providers participating under the Medicaid state plan (or a waiver of such plan) to provide substance use disorder treatment or recovery services under such plan (or waiver); • The activities carried out under the planning grants and demonstration project; • The extent to which participating states have achieved the stated goals; and • The strengths and limitations of the planning grants and demonstration project. This collection of information request is intended to satisfy the reporting requirements, defined in the statute, regarding the impact of the Demonstration. The evaluation of the Demonstration will assess the extent to which the participating states achieved the goals they established to increase substance use treatment or recovery provider capacity under the Medicaid program. This includes both the planning and post-planning periods of the demonstration, as evaluation during both phases will enable CMS and stakeholders to assess the effects of the additional support provided to states during the post-planning period, relative to the planning period only. Primary data collection will occur in two rounds in year two and year four of the evaluation. In both rounds, data collection will consist of: (1) A survey of providers in all 15 Planning Grant states who are eligible to prescribe and/ or administer either buprenorphine or methadone medication for opioid use disorder (OUD), and (2) focus groups of providers in five post-planning period states (two focus groups per state, with six to eight participants in each group) who treat SUD, including OUD. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:50 Sep 23, 2021 Jkt 253001 The survey will gather information on provider experiences related to Medicaid provider enrollment, SUD service delivery, and changes in OUD medication treatment, including barriers and enablers of prescribing and dispensing. The focus groups will examine the impact of key aspects of implementation, such as perceived burdens associated with Medicaid enrollment or MAT delivery, access to referral placements, value of stateprovided TA, and benefits and unanticipated outcomes experienced by providers during the Demonstration. Form Number: CMS–10786 (OMB control number: 0938–NEW); Frequency: Biennial; Affected Public: Private sector (Business or other forprofits and Not-for-profit institutions); Number of Respondents: 28,810; Total Annual Responses: 14,405; Total Annual Hours: 3,689. (For policy questions regarding this collection contact Melanie Brown at 410–786– 1095.) 2. Type of Information Collection Request: Revision of a currently approved collection; Title of Information Collection: Medicaid Drug Use Review (DUR) Program; Use: States must provide for a review of drug therapy before each prescription is filled or delivered to a Medicaid patient. This review includes screening for potential drug therapy problems due to therapeutic duplication, drug-disease contraindications, drug-drug interactions, incorrect drug dosage or duration of drug treatment, drug-allergy interactions, and clinical abuse/misuse. Pharmacists must make a reasonable effort to obtain, record, and maintain Medicaid patient profiles. These profiles must reflect at least the patient’s name, address, telephone number, date of birth/age, gender, history, e.g., allergies, drug reactions, list of medications, and pharmacist’s comments relevant to the individual’s drug therapy. The States must conduct RetroDUR which provides for the ongoing periodic examination of claims data and other records in order to identify patterns of fraud, abuse, inappropriate or medically unnecessary care. Patterns or trends of drug therapy problems are identified and reviewed to determine the need for intervention activity with pharmacists and/or physicians. States may conduct interventions via telephone, correspondence, or face-to-face contact. Annual reports are submitted to CMS for the purposes of monitoring compliance and evaluating the progress of States’ DUR programs. The information submitted by States is reviewed and results are compiled by PO 00000 Frm 00034 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 53061 CMS in a format intended to provide information, comparisons, and trends related to States’ experiences with DUR. States benefit from the information and may enhance their programs each year based on State reported innovative practices that are compiled by CMS from the DUR annual reports. In this 2021 collection of information request, we revised certain FFS, MCO, and Abbreviated MCO survey questions. While a few questions were added to the surveys to address GAO (U.S. Government Accountability Office) recommendations, other aspects of the survey changes include grammar and formatting edits. Overall, we are not revising our currently approved burden estimates. Form Number: CMS–R–153 (OMB control number: 0938–0659); Frequency: Yearly, quarterly, and occasionally; Affected Public: State, Local, or Tribal Governments; Number of Respondents: 51; Total Annual Responses: 663; Total Annual Hours: 41,004.
