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

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
:
Information Collection Request Title:
Family-to-Family Health Information
Center Feedback Surveys OMB No.
0906–0040—Extension
Abstract: The Family-to-Family
Health Information Center (F2F HIC or
Center) program is authorized by the
Social Security Act, Title V, § 501(c) (42
U.S.C. 701(c)), as amended by the
Medicare Access and CHIP
Reauthorization Act of 2015 (Pub. L.
114–10), § 216, the Bipartisan Budget
Act of 2018 (Pub. L. 115–123), § 50501,
and the Sustaining Excellence in
Medicaid Act of 2019 (Pub. L. 116–39),
§ 5. The goal of the F2F HIC program is
to promote optimal health for children
and youth with special health care
needs (CYSHCN) by facilitating their
access to an effective health delivery
system and by meeting the health
information and support needs of
families of CYSHCN and the
professionals who serve them. HRSA’s
Maternal and Child Health Bureau
funds 59 F2F HICs in each of the 50
United States and the District of
Columbia, five U.S. Territories (Puerto
Rico, Guam, American Samoa, the U.S.
Virgin Islands and the Northern Mariana
Islands); and three F2F HICs who serve
American Indians/Alaska Natives. On
average, these Centers provide
information, education, technical
assistance, and peer support to
approximately 200,000 families of
CYSHCN and approximately 100,000
health professionals each year. F2F HICs
are staffed by families of CYSHCN who
are uniquely positioned to provide such
services, and by health professionals.
F2F HIC staff also assist in ensuring
families and health professionals are
partners in decision making at all levels
of care and service delivery.
In order to evaluate the F2F HIC
program, HRSA developed two Family-
to-Family Health Information Center
Feedback Surveys for family members of
CYSHCN and health professionals who
serve such families. Each F2F HIC
administers the surveys and reports data
back to HRSA. Survey respondents will
be asked to answer questions about how
useful they found the information,
assistance, or resources received from
the F2F HICs. The purpose of this notice
is to solicit comments regarding the
continuation of previously approved
feedback surveys; no changes will be
made to the survey instruments.
A 60-day notice published in the
Federal Register, 86, FR 60260
(November 1, 2021). There were no
public comments.
Need and Proposed Use of the
Information: Data from the feedback
surveys will provide mechanisms to
capture consistent performance data
from F2F HIC grant recipients. The data
will also allow F2F HICs to evaluate the
effectiveness of their interventions and
improve services provided to families
and the providers who serve CYSHCN
families.
Likely Respondents: Likely
respondents are users of F2F HIC
services, which include family members
of CYSHCN and health professionals
who serve such families.
Burden Statement: Burden in this
context means the time expended by
persons to generate, maintain, retain,
disclose, or provide the information
requested. This includes the time
needed to review instructions; to
develop, acquire, install, and utilize
technology and systems for the purpose
of collecting, validating and verifying
information, processing and
maintaining information, and disclosing
and providing information; to train
personnel and to be able to respond to
a collection of information; to search
data sources; to complete and review
the collection of information; and to
transmit or otherwise disclose the
information. The total annual burden
hours estimated for this ICR are
summarized in the table below.
