Initial application requirements for the PACE program are currently set forth in 42 CFR 460.12 and in the PACE Manual, Ch. 17. Until recently, the submission of initial and SAE PACE applications and supporting information was in paper format. These applications are often hundreds of pages long, expensive to reproduce and transmit, and administratively inefficient, as staff reviewing different parts of the application are located in different physical locations and must receive hard copies of the material. However, beginning in 2016, initial PACE applications are being submitted via a new automated, electronic submission process. As with initial applications, an application also must be submitted for a PO that seeks to expand its service area and/or add a new service site, and with OMB approval, an automated application process will now also be required of PACE organizations submitting service area expansion applications. In pursuing this new information collection package, we are extracting this component only from the existing OMB approval for the PACE program (CMS-R-244, OMB Control Number 0938-0790).

The number of attestations associated with the most recent updated PACE rule resulted in an increase of required attestations, from approximately 175 to about 190. Therefore, instead of 15 hours associated with this part of the application (approximately 5 minutes per attestation (~ 190 total), we now estimate 16 hours to complete all attestations associated with the application. CMS added estimated burden associated with the completion of required attestations, we now estimate a total annual burden of 2,595 applicant hours to complete the application. This resulted in a total increase in burden from 7,226 hours to 7,271 hours.
