Type of Information Collection Request: Reinstatement without change of a previously approved collection; Title of Information Collection: Organ Procurement Organization Histocompatibility Laboratory Cost Report; Use: The Form CMS–216–94 cost report is needed to determine Organ Procurement Organization (OPO)/ Histocompatibility Lab (HL) reasonable costs incurred in procuring and transporting organs for transplant into Medicare beneficiaries and reimbursement due to or from the provider. The reasonable costs of procuring and transporting organs cannot be determined for the fiscal year until the OPO/HL files its cost report and costs are verified by the Medicare contractor. During the fiscal year, an interim rate is established based on cost report data from the previous year. The OPO/HL bills the transplant hospital for services rendered. The transplant hospital pays interim payments, approximating reasonable cost, to the OPO/HL. The Form CMS–216–94 cost report is filed by each OPO/HL at the end of its fiscal year and there is a cost report settlement to take into account increases or decreases in costs. The cost report reconciliation and settlement take into consideration the difference between the total reasonable costs minus the total interim payments received or receivable from the transplant centers. Form Number: CMS– 216–94 (OMB Control number: 0938– 0102); Frequency: Annually; Affected Public: Private Sector—Business or other for-profits; Number of Respondents: 95; Total Annual Responses: 95; Total Annual Hours: 4,275 (For policy questions regarding this collection contact Luann Piccione at 410–786–5423) Dated: October 12, 2021.
