This significant increase is a result of improved data provided by SSA, in addition to the transfer of the information technology collection instruments from SSA to CMS. CMS will begin reporting for additional collection instruments, including the Internet Claim System (iClaim) and the Modernized Claims System (MCS) soon to be upgraded to the Consolidated Claims Experience (CCE). The hourly burden from the 2017 approved submission increased from 12,500 hours to 146,673 hours -- a change of 134,173.
