This ICR seeks approval under the PRA for revisions to the Provider Enrollment Form (Form OWCP-1168). The form requests profile information on providers that enroll in one or more of OWCP's benefit programs so its billing contractor can pay them for services rendered to beneficiaries using its automated bill processing system. In addition to the enrollment form information collection, the OWCP bill processing contractor currently collects electronic data interchange (EDI) information from the provider only if the provider chooses a data exchange submission method. Once the new OWCP-1168 form is in place, the existing EDI template will no longer be applicable. The current EDI template collects information that is duplicative to information collected on Form OWCP-1168, such as names, addresses, and NPI. Collecting EDI information with the enrollment information in one form will improve efficiency in collecting the information from providers, reduce the time required for processing by operational staff, and will significantly reduce errors associated with mismatching provider enrollments to their EDI information. This information collection will be submitted to OMB under the emergency processing request procedures, as outlined by 5 C.F.R. Part 1320 Section 13, to allow for implementation of the revisions to the Provider Enrollment Form as soon as possible, and to incorporate regulatory updates implementing the Black Lung benefits Act which becomes applicable on April 26, 2020.

There has been an increase in the number of respondents seeking to provide medical or vocational services to beneficiaries. Accordingly, the burden hours increased from 8,555 to 32,162.50, an adjustment of 23,608 hours and the operational and maintenance costs increased from $33,449 to $37,309, an adjustment of $3,860. In addition, the final BLBA rule continues the current information collection requirements but would change where the regulatory authorities are codified. This ICR updates the regulatory citation for the BLBA program’s authority to collect the information.
