Under the 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
requires federal agencies to publish a
60-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
Information Collection
1. Type of Information Collection
Request: Extension of a currently
collection; Title of Information
Collection: Establishment of Exchanges
and Qualified Health Plans; Exchange
Standards for Employers; Use: Section
1321(a) requires HHS to issue
regulations setting standards for meeting
the requirements under title I of the
Affordable Care Act including the
offering of Qualified Health Plans
(QHPs) through the Exchanges. On
March 27, 2012, HHS published the rule
CMS–9989–F: Establishment of
Exchanges and Qualified Health Plans;
Exchange Standards for Employers. The
Exchange rule contains provisions that
mandate reporting and data collections
necessary to ensure that health
insurance issuers are meeting the
requirements of the Affordable Care Act.
These information collection
requirements are set forth in 45 CFR
part 156.
The reporting requirements and data
collection in the Exchange rule address
minimum requirements that health
insurance issuers must meet in order to
comply with provisions in the
Affordable Care Act with respect to
participation in a State-based or the
Federally-facilitated Exchange (FFE).
Information collected by the
Exchanges or Medicaid and CHIP
agencies will be used to determine
eligibility for coverage through the
Exchange and insurance affordability
programs (i.e., Medicaid, CHIP, and
advance payment of the premium tax
credits); evaluate how CMS can best
communicate eligibility and enrollment
updates to issuers; and assist consumers
in enrolling in a QHP if eligible.
Applicants include anyone who may be
eligible for coverage through any of
these programs. Form Number: CMS–
