comment on the notice. Interested
persons are invited to send comments
regarding the burden estimate or any
other aspect of this collection of
information, including the necessity and
utility of the proposed information
collection for the proper performance of
the agency’s functions, the accuracy of

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
: Under the
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA)
(44 U.S.C. 3501–3520), federal agencies
must obtain approval from the Office of
Management and Budget (OMB) for each
collection of information they conduct
or sponsor. 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

change of a previously approved
collection; Title of Information
Collection: Hospice Facility Cost Report

§§ 1815(a) and 1833(e) of the Social
Security Act (the Act), CMS requires
that providers of services participating
in the Medicare program submit
information to determine costs for
health care services rendered to
Medicare beneficiaries. CMS requires
that providers follow reasonable cost
principles under 1861(v)(1)(A) of the
Act when completing the Medicare cost
report (MCR). The regulations at 42 CFR
413.20 and 413.24 require that providers
submit acceptable cost reports on an
annual basis and maintain sufficient
financial records and statistical data,
capable of verification by qualified
auditors. In addition, regulations require
that providers furnish such Information
to the contractor as may be necessary to
assure proper payment by the program,
receive program payments, and satisfy
program overpayment determinations.
CMS regulations at 42 CFR
413.24(f)(4) require that each hospice
submit an annual cost report to their
contractor in a standard American
Standard Code for Information
Interchange (ASCII) electronic cost
report (ECR) format. A hospice submits
the ECR file to contractors using a
compact disk (CD), flash drive, or the
CMS approved Medicare Cost Report E-
filing (MCREF) portal, [URL: https://

submission are included in the hospice
cost report instructions on page 43–3.
CMS requires the Form CMS–1984–14

costs incurred in furnishing medical
services to Medicare beneficiaries. CMS
uses the Form CMS–1984–14 for rate
setting; payment refinement activities,
including developing a market basket;
Medicare Trust Fund projections; and
program operations support.
Additionally, the Medicare Payment
Advisory Commission (MedPAC) uses
the hospice cost report data to calculate
Medicare margins (a measure of the
relationship between Medicare’s
payments and providers’ Medicare
costs) and analyze data to formulate
Medicare Program recommendations to
Congress. Form Number: CMS–1984–14

SUMMARY

Children and Families (ACF) is
requesting the federal Office of

their Supplemental Nutrition Assistance
Program (SNAP) provide the annual
performance report to OCSE in

agreement between state SNAP agencies
and OCSE. The current OMB approval
expires on February 28, 2022.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
:
Description: State agencies
administering SNAP are mandated to
participate in a computer matching
program with the federal OCSE. The
matching program compares SNAP
applicant and recipient information
with employment and wage information
maintained in the National Directory of
New Hires (NDNH). The outcomes of
the compared information help state
SNAP agencies with verifying and
determining an individual’s benefit
eligibility. To receive NDNH
information, state agencies enter into a
computer matching agreement and
adhere to its terms and conditions,
including providing OCSE with annual
performance outcomes that are
attributable to the use of NDNH
information.
To fulfill OMB requirements, OCSE
periodically reports performance
measurements demonstrating how the
use of information in the NDNH
supports OCSE’s strategic mission,
goals, and objectives. OCSE will provide
the annual SNAP performance outcomes
to OMB.
Respondents: State SNAP Agencies.
