Proposed Project: Uncompensated Services Assurance Report (OMB No. 0915-0077)—[Revision]

Under the Hill-Burton Act, the Government provides grants and loans for construction or renovation of health care facilities. As a condition of receiving this construction assistance, facilities are required to provide services to persons unable to pay. A condition of receiving this assistance requires facilities to provide assurances periodically that the required level of uncompensated care is being provided, and that certain notification and record keeping procedures are being followed. These standard requirements are referred to as the uncompensated services assurance.

The annual estimate of burden is as follows:
