National Library of Medicine; Notice of Closed Meetings, 58918 [2021-23134]

Download as PDF jspears on DSK121TN23PROD with NOTICES1 58918 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 203 / Monday, October 25, 2021 / Notices economic threshold and is not considered a major notice. The RFA requires agencies to analyze options for regulatory relief of small businesses. For purposes of the RFA, small entities include small businesses, nonprofit organizations, and small governmental jurisdictions. Most hospitals and most other providers and suppliers are small entities, either by nonprofit status or by having revenues of less than $7.5 million to $38.5 million in any 1 year. Individuals and states are not included in the definition of a small entity. As we stated in the RIA for the February 2, 2011 final rule with comment period (76 FR 5952), we do not believe that the application fee will have a significant impact on small entities. In addition, section 1102(b) of the Act requires us to prepare a regulatory impact analysis if a rule may have a significant impact on the operations of a substantial number of small rural hospitals. This analysis must conform to the provisions of section 604 of the RFA. For purposes of section 1102(b) of the Act, we define a small rural hospital as a hospital that is located outside of a Metropolitan Statistical Area for Medicare payment regulations and has fewer than 100 beds. We are not preparing an analysis for section 1102(b) of the Act because we have determined, and the Secretary certifies, that this notice would not have a significant impact on the operations of a substantial number of small rural hospitals. Section 202 of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (UMRA) also requires that agencies assess anticipated costs and benefits before issuing any rule whose mandates require spending in any 1 year of $100 million in 1995 dollars, updated annually for inflation. In 2021, that threshold was approximately $158 million. The Agency has determined that there will be minimal impact from the costs of this notice, as the threshold is not met under the UMRA. Executive Order 13132 establishes certain requirements that an agency must meet when it promulgates a proposed rule (and subsequent final rule) that imposes substantial direct requirement costs on state and local governments, preempts state law, or otherwise has federalism implications. Since this notice does not impose substantial direct costs on state or local governments, the requirements of Executive Order 13132 are not applicable. B. Costs The costs associated with this notice involve the increase in the application VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:00 Oct 22, 2021 Jkt 256001 fee amount that certain providers and suppliers must pay in CY 2022. The CY 2022 cost estimates are as follows: 1. Medicare Based on CMS data, we estimate that in CY 2022 approximately— • 10,214 newly enrolling institutional providers will be subject to and pay an application fee; and • 42,117 revalidating institutional providers will be subject to and pay an application fee. Using a figure of 52,331 (10,214 newly enrolling + 42,117 revalidating) institutional providers, we estimate an increase in the cost of the Medicare application fee requirement in CY 2022 of $1,674,592 (or 52,331 × $32 (or $631 minus $599)) from our CY 2021 projections. 2. Medicaid and CHIP Based on CMS and state statistics, we estimate that approximately 30,000 (9,000 newly enrolling + 21,000 revalidating) Medicaid and CHIP institutional providers will be subject to an application fee in CY 2022. Using this figure, we project an increase in the cost of the Medicaid and CHIP application fee requirement in CY 2022 of $960,000 (or 30,000 × $32 (or $631 minus $599)) from our CY 2021 projections. 3. Total Based on the foregoing, we estimate the total increase in the cost of the application fee requirement for Medicare, Medicaid, and CHIP providers and suppliers in CY 2022 to be $2,634,592 ($1,674,592 + $960,000) from our CY 2021 projections. In accordance with the provisions of Executive Order 12866, this notice was reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget. The Administrator of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), Chiquita Brooks-LaSure, having reviewed and approved this document, authorizes Lynette Wilson, who is the Federal Register Liaison, to electronically sign this document for purposes of publication in the Federal Register. Dated: October 19, 2021. Lynette Wilson, Federal Register Liaison, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
