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

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.
