Contents

This notice sets out a summary of the use and burden associated with the following information collections. More detailed information can be found in each collection's supporting statement and associated materials (see ADDRESSES).

CMS-304/-304a Reconciliation of State Invoice (ROSI) and Prior Quarter Adjustment Statement (PQAS)

CMS-367a-d Medicaid Drug Rebate Program Labeler Reporting Format

CMS-368/-R-144 Medicaid Drug Rebate Program State Reporting Forms

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 notice.

Information Collection

1. Type of Information Collection Request: Revision of a currently approved collection; Title of Information Collection: Reconciliation of State Invoice (ROSI) and Prior Quarter Adjustment Statement (PQAS); Use: Form CMS-304 (ROSI) is used by manufacturers to respond to the state's rebate invoice for current quarter utilization. Form CMS-304a (PQAS) is required only in those instances where a change to the original rebate data submittal is necessary. Effective July 1, 2021, the Medicaid Drug Rebate Program (MDRP) is updating to a new Medicaid Drug Programs (MDP) system which will now accept a delimited text file format, Comma Separated Values (.CSV), in addition to the current Text (.TXT) file format. We have also increased several file format data field sizes in order to accommodate the higher priced drugs that are entering the market. These changes in conjunction with numerous edits to verbiage are applicable to Forms CMS-304 and -304a. Separately, we are also updating corresponding collection of information requests (OMB 0938-0578 and OMB 0938-0582) so that all the MDP file formats, field sizes, and verbiage will align across the MDRP. Form Number: CMS-304 and -304a (OMB control number: 0938-0676); Frequency: Quarterly; Affected Public: Private sector (Business or other for-profits); Number of Respondents: 749; Total Annual Responses: 5,841; Total Annual Hours: 248,584. (For policy questions regarding this collection contact Andrea Wellington at 410-786-3490.)

2. Type of Information Collection Request: Revision of a currently approved collection; Title of Information Collection: Medicaid Drug Rebate Program Labeler Reporting Format; Use: Labelers transmit drug product and pricing data to CMS within 30 days after the end of each calendar month and quarter. CMS calculates the unit rebate amount (URA) and the unit rebate offset amount (UROA) for each new drug application (NDC) and distributes to all State Medicaid agencies. States use the URA to invoice the labeler for rebates and the UROA to report onto CMS-64. The monthly data is used to calculate Federal Upper Limit (FUL) prices for applicable drugs and for states that opt to use this data to establish their pharmacy reimbursement methodology. Effective July 1, 2021, the MDRP is updating to a new Medicaid Drug Programs (MDP) system which will now accept a delimited text file format, Comma Separated Values (.CSV), in addition to the current Text Start Printed Page 76578(.TXT) file format. We have also increased several file format data field sizes in order to accommodate the higher priced drugs that are entering the market. These changes in conjunction with numerous edits to verbiage are applicable to Forms CMS-367a (Quarterly Pricing), CMS-367b (Monthly Pricing), CMS-367c (Product Data), and CMS-367d (Manufacturer Contact Form). Separately, we are also updating corresponding collection of information requests (OMB 0938-0582 and OMB 0938-0676) so that all the MDP file formats, field sizes, and verbiage will align across the MDRP. Form Number: CMS-367a, b, c, and d (OMB control number: 0938-0578); Frequency: Monthly, quarterly, and on occasion; Affected Public: Private sector (Business or other for-profits); Number of Respondents: 749; Total Annual Responses: 14,980; Total Annual Hours: 558,979. (For policy questions regarding this collection contact Andrea Wellington at 410-786-3490.)

3. Type of Information Collection Request: Revision of a currently approved collection; Title of Information Collection: Medicaid Drug Rebate Program State Reporting Forms; Use: Form CMS 368 is a report of contact for the State to name the individuals involved in the Medicaid Drug Rebate Program (MDRP) and is required only in those instances where a change to the originally submitted data is necessary. The ability to require the reporting of any changes to these data is necessary to the efficient operation of these programs. Form CMS-R-144 is required from States quarterly to report utilization for any drugs paid for during that quarter. Effective July 1, 2021, the MDRP is updating to a new Medicaid Drug Programs (MDP) system which will now accept a delimited text file format, Comma Separated Values (.CSV), in addition to the current Text (.TXT) file format. We have also increased several file format data field sizes in order to accommodate the higher priced drugs that are entering the market. These changes in conjunction with numerous edits to verbiage are applicable to Form CMS-R-144. Separately, we are also updating corresponding collection of information requests (OMB 0938-0578 and OMB 0938-0676) so that all the MDP file formats, field sizes, and verbiage will align across the MDRP. Form CMS-368 has been revised by removing the DUR State Contact information and description “Drug Utilization Review (DUR) Program.” This information is now accounted for under OMB 0938-0659. Form Number: CMS-368 and -R-144 (OMB control number: 0938-0582); Frequency: Quarterly and on occasion; Affected Public: State, Local, or Tribal Governments; Number of Respondents: 56; Total Annual Responses: 290; Total Annual Hours: 13,669. (For policy questions regarding this collection contact Andrea Wellington at 410-786-3490.)
