We are soliciting public comment on each of these issues, which contain ICRs. All comments received on these ICRs will be addressed at the time the 30-day notice is published to solicit public comments.

A. ICRs Regarding Recertification for Certified Application Counselors (§155.225) Under §155.225(d)(7), certified application counselors are required to be recertified on at least an annual basis after successfully completing recertification training as required by the Exchange. Each Exchange is required to establish its own recertification process and standards consistent with these requirements. We expect that establishing a process for recertification will include creating a recertification request form (or similar document) in Exchanges that directly certify certified application counselors. We estimate that up to 18 State Exchanges will develop their own recertification request form.41 We estimate that the development of a recertification request form, as may be applicable for Exchanges that directly certify certified application counselors, will take a health policy analyst (at $49.35 labor cost per hour) up to 1 hour to create, a senior manager (at $79.08 cost per hour) up to.5 hours (30 minutes) for review, and an attorney up to.5 hours (at $90.15 labor cost per hour) for legal review. We estimate that the onetime burden will be two hours with a cost burden of $134 for each Exchange, and the total burden for 18 State Exchanges will be 36 hours with a cost burden of $2,412.

There are recordkeeping requirements associated with developing and maintaining a request form. We estimate that the time burden associated with maintaining a copy of the request form will be.016 hours (1 minute); we assume that a mid-level health policy analyst will maintain electronic copies of the form at minimal cost, which we estimate as $0.79 as a one-time

requirement for the Exchange. The total burden for 18 Exchanges is estimated to be 1.08 hours and the total cost burden will be $14.22.

There will also be third-party disclosure requirements for 18 State Exchanges associated with reviewing each certified application counselor’s recertification request, which will require the Exchange to notify the individual of the result of its review and issue a new certificate for each individual who successfully completes recertification. This notice requirement will apply to the Exchange on an annual basis. We estimate that it will take a mid-level health policy analyst in the Exchange up to.08 hours (5 minutes) to notify an individual. The estimated cost burden is $4.11 for each individual notice, including the certificate. For purposes of this analysis, we estimate that there will be approximately 30,000 certified application counselors nationwide, or approximately 10,600 application counselors in 18 State Exchanges. The total cost burden will be approximately $2,422 for each State Exchange. The total burden for 18 State Exchanges will be approximately 883 hours and the total cost burden will be $43,593. There will be recordkeeping requirements associated with issuing each individual notice. We estimate that the time burden associated with maintaining a copy of the notice and certificate will be.016 hours (1 minute); we assume that a mid-level health policy analyst, with a labor cost of $49.35 an hour, will maintain electronic copies of the form at minimal cost, which we estimate as $0.79 per notice for each individual certified application counselor. The total recordkeeping burden for 10,600 certified application counselors in 18 State Exchanges is estimated to be 170 hours and the total cost burden will be $8,374, or $265 per Exchange.

For Exchanges that designate organizations to directly certify certified application counselors under §155.225(b)(1), there will be requirements associated with implementing a

–  –  –

will include creating and issuing a recertification request form (or similar document) for an organization’s certified application counselors to submit to indicate their intention to be recertified and provide an updated conflicts of interest disclosure or other attestations as may be required. We estimate that up to 5,000 designated organizations will develop their own recertification request form. We estimate that the development of a recertification request form will take a health policy analyst (at $49.35 labor cost per hour) up to 1 hour to create, a senior manager (at $79.08 labor cost per hour) up to.5 hours (30 minutes) for review, and an attorney (at $90.15 labor cost per hour) up to.5 hours (30 minutes) for legal review. We estimate that the one-time cost burden will be $134 for each organization. The total one-time burden for 5,000 organizations nationwide will be 10,000 hours and the total cost burden will be $670,000.

There will be recordkeeping requirements associated with developing and maintaining a request form. We estimate that the time burden associated with maintaining a copy of the request form will be.016 hours (1 minute); we assume that a mid-level health policy analyst with a labor cost of $49.35 an hour will maintain electronic copies of the form at minimal cost, which we estimate as $0.79 as a one-time requirement for each organization. The total one-time burden for 5,000 organizations nationwide is estimated to be 80 hours and the total cost burden will be $3,950.





There will also be third-party disclosure requirements for designated organizations associated with reviewing each certified application counselor’s recertification request, which will require the organization to notify the individual of the result of its review and issue a new certificate as appropriate. This notice requirement will apply to the organization on an annual basis. For purposes of estimating the burden on designated organizations, we assume that of the

–  –  –

directly certified by designated organizations, or four certified applications counselors on average per designated organization. We estimate that it will take a mid-level health policy analyst up to.08 hours (5 minutes) to notify an individual and issue a new certificate. The estimated cost burden is $4.11 for each individual notice. For an estimated 19,400 certified application counselors nationwide, or approximately four certified application counselors on average in each organization, the total cost burden will be approximately $16.44 for each organization. The total burden for 5,000 designated organizations nationwide will be approximately 1,617 hours and the total cost burden will be approximately $79,734.

There will be recordkeeping requirements associated with issuing a certificate. We estimate that the time burden associated with maintaining a copy of each certificate issued at recertification will be.016 hours (1 minute). We assume that a mid-level health policy analyst with a labor cost of $49.35 an hour will maintain electronic copies of the form at minimal cost, which we estimate as $0.79 per certificate for each organization. The total recordkeeping cost per organization will be $3.16. The total burden for 5,000 organizations nationwide will be 323 hours and the total cost burden will be approximately $ 15,326.

There will be third-party disclosure requirements for individual certified application counselors associated with completing the requirements for recertification, whether done directly through the Exchange or through an Exchange-designated certified application counselor organization. Such recertification requirements will include completing Exchange required training and might also include satisfying other requirements consistent with the Exchangeestablished processes, such as providing conflicts of interest disclosures, other attestations and submitting a recertification request form (or similar document) and other attestations. These

–  –  –

prohibits individual certified application counselors or organizations from being funded through sources such as applicable private, State, or Federal programs, we expect that certified application counselors will not be guaranteed any specific funding. We estimate the professional wage of certified application counselors for this type of work as equivalent to that of an eligibility interviewer for assistance from government programs and agency resources. We estimate that it will take a certified application counselor with a labor cost of $26.65 an hour up to 0.17 hours (10 minutes) to complete and submit the recertification request to the organization or Exchange, as applicable. The estimated cost burden will be $4.53 for each individual seeking recertification. We estimate that there will be approximately 30,000 recertification requests provided, for a total burden of 5,000 hours and a total cost burden of $135,915 for all certified application counselors nationwide.

There will be third-party disclosure requirements associated with taking recertification training. We expect that an individual certified application counselor will provide proof to the organization or Exchange that he or she has successfully completed the recertification training, in accordance with the Exchange’s process. We estimate that it will take a certified application counselor with a labor cost of $26.65 an hour up to.03 hours (2 minutes) to provide the training certificate to the organization or Exchange, as may be required. The total estimated cost burden is $0.80 for each individual seeking recertification. We estimate that there will be approximately 30,000 training certificates provided, and the total burden will be 1,000 hours, with a total cost burden of $24,000 for all certified application counselors nationwide.

In addition, there will be recordkeeping requirements associated with the training certification. We expect each person who receives training will obtain and maintain a record of

–  –  –

training certification is.016 hours (1 minute), since we assume this proof will be maintained through electronic copies, at minimal cost. The total cost estimated for each individual to maintain proof of training certification will be $0.43. The total burden will be 500 hours and the total cost burden will be $12,900 for all certified application counselors nationwide.

B. ICRs Regarding Consumer Authorization (§§ 155.210 and 155.215) For purposes of the ICRs associated with these provisions, we use the same labor cost estimates that were used in the final Navigator and non-Navigator assistance personnel standards rule (Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act; Exchange Functions: Standards for Navigators and Non-Navigator Assistance Personnel, July 17, 2013, 78 FR 42842). Navigator personnel and non-Navigator assistance personnel to which §155.215 applies are estimated to have a labor cost of $20 per hour. Project leads for Navigator and non-Navigator assistance entities to which §155.215 applies are estimated to have a labor cost of $29 per hour. Senior executives for Navigator and non-Navigator assistance entities to which §155.215 applies are estimated to have a labor cost of $48 per hour. These are estimates commonly used for estimating paperwork burden and do not represent a recommendation or a requirement of how much Navigator and non-Navigator personnel to which §155.215 applies are to be paid. There is nothing in the regulations that require any of these workers to be paid any specific amount.

In the ICR currently approved under OMB control number 0938-1220, we noted that there were 105 Navigator grantee organizations at that time in FFEs, including SPEs, and we estimated that there were 3,000 individuals working as Navigators. We estimated the number of non-Navigator assistance project leads to be 300 and 1,800 for personnel and we use those

–  –  –

In accordance with §155.210(e)(6) and §155.215(g), Navigators, as well as those nonNavigator personnel to whom §155.215 applies, will be required to maintain procedures to inform consumers of the functions and responsibilities of Navigators and non-Navigator assistance personnel (as applicable), and to obtain authorization for the disclosure of consumer information to the Navigator or non-Navigator assistance personnel (as applicable). This will be a one-time requirement for the organization. We estimate that it will take a Navigator or nonNavigator assistance personnel project lead up to 2 hours to create the form for providing authorization to applicants, and a Navigator or non-Navigator senior executive up to 1 hour to review the procedure, for a total time burden of up to 3 hours. We estimate the cost burden associated with creating this procedure will be $106 per organization. The total cost for all 105 Navigator grantee organizations is estimated to be $11,130. The total cost for all 300 nonNavigator assistance personnel organizations is estimated to be $31,800.

There are also recordkeeping requirements associated with developing and maintaining a model agreement and authorization form. Each organization is expected to maintain a copy of the executed forms. We estimate that the time burden associated with maintaining a copy of executed agreement and authorization forms for each consumer will be 0.016 hours (1 minute);

we assume these will be maintained through electronic copies with minimal cost.

In addition, there will be burdens on individual Navigators, as well as those nonNavigator assistance personnel to whom §155.215 applies. Under §155.210(e)(6) and §155.215(g), respectively, Navigators and non-Navigator assistance personnel will be required to inform consumers of the functions and responsibilities of Navigators and non-Navigator assistance personnel and obtain authorization for the disclosure of consumer information to a
