Indian Country: Air Quality Planning and Management; Federal Implementation Plan for the Kalispel Indian Community of the Kalispel Reservation, Washington; Redesignation to a PSD Class I Area
Document Number: 2019-15221
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-07-18
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
In this final rule, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is approving the May 11, 2017 proposal by the Kalispel Indian Community of the Kalispel Reservation (herein referred to as the Kalispel Tribe of Indians or Kalispel Tribe) to redesignate lands within the exterior boundaries of the Kalispel Indian Reservation located in the State of Washington to Class I under the Clean Air Act (Act or CAA) program for the prevention of significant deterioration (PSD) of air quality.

Concurrently, the EPA is codifying the redesignation through a revision to the Federal Implementation Plan (FIP) currently in place for the Kalispel Indian Reservation.

The Acting Administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is issuing this temporary scheduling order to schedule the synthetic cathinones, N-ethylhexedrone (2-(ethylamino)-1- phenylhexan-1-one); alpha-pyrrolidinohexanophenone (1-phenyl-2- (pyrrolidin-1-yl)hexan-1-one; alpha-pyrrolidinohexiophenone; trivial name: [alpha]-PHP); 4-methyl-alpha-ethylaminopentiophenone (2- (ethylamino)-1-(4-methylphenyl)pentan-1-one; trivial name: 4-MEAP); 4'- methyl-alpha-pyrrolidinohexiophenone (1-(4-methylphenyl)-2-(pyrrolidin- 1-yl)hexan-1-one; 4'-methyl-alpha-pyrrolidinohexanophenone; trivial name: MPHP); alpha-pyrrolidinoheptaphenone (1-phenyl-2-(pyrrolidin-1- yl)heptan-1-one; trivial name: PV8); and 4'-chloro-alpha- pyrrolidinovalerophenone (1-(4-chlorophenyl)-2-(pyrrolidin-1-yl)pentan- 1-one; 4'-chloro-alpha-pyrrolidinopentiophenone; trivial name: 4- chloro-[alpha]-PVP), and their optical, positional, and geometric isomers, salts, and salts of isomers in schedule I.

Partial Extension of Compliance Date for Entry-Level Driver Training
Document Number: 2019-14956
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-07-18
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
FMCSA proposes to amend its December 8, 2016, final rule, ``Minimum Training Requirements for Entry-Level Commercial Motor Vehicle Operators'' (ELDT final rule), by extending the compliance date for two provisions from the rule. The date for training providers to upload entry-level driver training (ELDT) certification information into the Training Provider Registry (TPR) and for State Driver Licensing Agencies (SDLAs) to receive driver-specific ELDT information would be extended from February 7, 2020, to February 7, 2022. This action would provide FMCSA additional time to complete development of the electronic interface that will receive and store ELDT certification information from training providers and transmit that information to the SDLAs. The proposed extension would also provide SDLAs with sufficient time to modify their information technology (IT) systems and procedures, as necessary, to accommodate their receipt of driver- specific ELDT data from the TPR.

Document Number: 2019-14946

Date: 2019-07-18

Medicare and Medicaid Programs; CY 2020 Home Health Prospective Payment System Rate Update; Home Health Value-Based Purchasing Model; Home Health Quality Reporting Requirements; and Home Infusion Therapy Requirements
Document Number: 2019-14913
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-07-18
Agency: Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, Department of Health and Human Services
This proposed rule would update the home health prospective payment system (HH PPS) payment rates and wage index for CY 2020; implement the Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM), a revised case-mix adjustment methodology, for home health services beginning on or after January 1, 2020. This proposed rule also implements a change in the unit of payment from 60-day episodes of care to 30-day periods of care, as required by section 51001 of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018, hereinafter referred to the ``BBA of 2018'', and proposes a 30-day payment amount for CY 2020. Additionally, this proposed rule proposes to: Modify the payment regulations pertaining to the content of the home health plan of care; allow physical therapy assistants to furnish maintenance therapy; and change the split percentage payment approach under the HH PPS. This proposed rule would also solicit comments on the wage index used to adjust home health payments and suggestions for possible updates and improvements to the geographic adjustment of home health payments. In addition, it proposes public reporting of certain performance data under the Home Health Value-Based Purchasing (HHVBP) Model. We are proposing to publicly report the Total Performance Score (TPS) and the TPS Percentile Ranking from the Performance Year 5 (CY 2020) Annual TPS and Payment Adjustment Report for each home health agency in the nine Model states that qualified for a payment adjustment for CY 2020. It also proposes changes with respect to the Home Health Quality Reporting Program to remove one measure, to adopt two new measures, modify an existing measure, adopt new standardized patient assessment data beginning with the CY 2022 HH QRP, codify the HH QRP policies in a new section, and to remove question 10 from all the HH Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) surveys. Lastly, it would set forth routine updates to the home infusion therapy payment rates for CY 2020 and propose payment provisions for home infusion therapy services for CY 2021 and subsequent years.
Medicare Program; Specialty Care Models To Improve Quality of Care and Reduce Expenditures
Document Number: 2019-14902
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-07-18
Agency: Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, Department of Health and Human Services
This proposed rule proposes to implement two new mandatory Medicare payment models under section 1115A of the Social Security Actthe Radiation Oncology Model (RO Model) and the End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Treatment Choices Model (ETC Model). The proposed RO Model would promote quality and financial accountability for providers and suppliers of radiotherapy (RT). The RO Model would test whether making prospective episode payments to hospital outpatient departments (HOPD) and freestanding radiation therapy centers for RT episodes of care preserves or enhances the quality of care furnished to Medicare beneficiaries while reducing Medicare program spending through enhanced financial accountability for RO Model participants. The proposed ETC Model would be a mandatory payment model focused on encouraging greater use of home dialysis and kidney transplants, in order to preserve or enhance the quality of care furnished to Medicare beneficiaries while reducing Medicare expenditures. The ETC Model would include ESRD facilities and certain clinicians caring for beneficiaries with ESRD or Managing Clinicianslocated in selected geographic areas as participants. CMS would assess the performance of participating Managing Clinicians and ESRD facilities on their rates of home dialysis and kidney and kidney-pancreas transplants during each Measurement Year (MY), and would subsequently adjust certain of their Medicare payments upward or downward during the corresponding performance payment adjustment period based on their home dialysis rate and transplant rate. CMS would also positively adjust certain Medicare payments to participating ESRD facilities and Managing Clinicians for home dialysis and home dialysis-related claims in the initial 3 years of the ETC Model. We believe that these two proposed models would test ways to further our goals of reducing Medicare expenditures while preserving or enhancing the quality of care furnished to beneficiaries.
