comment on the notice. Interested
persons are invited to send comments
regarding the burden estimate or any

information, including the necessity and
utility of the proposed information
collection for the proper performance of
the agency’s functions, the accuracy of
the estimated burden, ways to enhance

information to be collected, and the use
of automated collection techniques or
other forms of information technology to
minimize the information collection
burden.

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
Request: Extension without change of a
currently approved collection; Title of
Information Collection: Bid Pricing Tool
(BPT) for Medicare Advantage (MA)
Plans and Prescription Drug Plans
(PDP); Use: This collection dates back to
2005. Under the Medicare Prescription
Drug, Improvement, and Modernization
Act of 2003 (MMA), and implementing
regulations at 42 CFR, Medicare
Advantage organizations (MAO) and
Prescription Drug Plans (PDP) are
required to submit an actuarial pricing
‘‘bid’’ for each plan offered to Medicare
beneficiaries for approval by the Centers
for Medicare & Medicaid Services
(CMS). MAOs and PDPs use the Bid
Pricing Tool (BPT) software to develop
their actuarial pricing bid. The
competitive bidding process defined by
the ‘‘The Medicare Prescription Drug,
Improvement, and Modernization Act’’
(MMA) applies to both the MA and Part
D programs. It is an annual process that
encompasses the release of the MA rate
book in April, the bid’s that plans
submit to CMS in June, and the release
of the Part D and RPPO benchmarks,
which typically occurs in August. Form
Number: CMS–10142 (OMB control
number: 0938–0944); Frequency: Yearly;
Affected Public: State, Local, or Tribal
Governments; Number of Respondents:
555; Total Annual Responses: 4,995;
