Start Preamble

Title: National Medical Support Notice

OMB No.: 0970-0222

Description: The National Medical Support Notice (NMSN) is a two-part document that requires information from State child support enforcement agencies, employers, and health plan administrators to assist in enforcing health care coverage provisions in a child support order. The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), Administration for Children and Families (ACF) developed and maintains Part A of the NMSN, which is sent to an obligor's employer for completion; the Department of Labor (DOL) developed and maintains Part B of the NMSN, which is provided to health care administrators following completion of Part A.

DOL revised Part B to conform with changes to the currently approved Part A and is seeking a three year approval from OMB. To avoid burdening the State child support enforcement agencies with potential reprogramming at varying times due to future changes in either Part A or Part B, ACF is resubmitting an unchanged information collection package and requesting an extension to the current OMB approval of NMSN Part A to synchronize the expiration date with NMSN Part B.

Respondents: State child support enforcement agencies, employers, and health plan administrators.
