In commenting, please refer to file code CMS-1471-P. Because of staff and resource limitations, we cannot accept comments by facsimile (FAX) transmission or e-mail. Mail written comments (one original and two copies) to the following address ONLY:Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, Department of Health and Human Services, Attention: CMS-1471-P, P.O. Box 8018, Baltimore, MD 21244-8018. Please allow sufficient time for mailed comments to be timely received in the event of delivery delays.

Humphrey Building, 200 Independence Avenue, SW., Washington, DC 20201, or Room C5-14-03, 7500 Security Boulevard, Baltimore, MD 21244-1850. (Because access to the interior of the HHH Building is not readily available to persons without Federal Government identification, commenters are encouraged to leave their comments in the CMS drop slots located in the main lobby of the building. A stamp-in clock is available for persons wishing to retain a proof of filing by stamping in and retaining an extra copy of the comments being filed.) Comments mailed to the addresses indicated as appropriate for hand or courier delivery may be delayed and could be considered late. We encourage commenters submitting as comments information that contains beneficiary specific information (for example, medical records, or invoices with beneficiary identification) to remove any individually identifiable information, such as information that identifies an individual, diagnoses, addresses, telephone numbers, attending physician, medical record number, or Medicare or other insurance number. Moreover, individually identifiable beneficiary medical records, including progress notes, medical orders, test results, consultation reports, and photocopies of checks from hospitals or other documents that contain bank routing numbers should not be submitted to us. Persons or organizations submitting proprietary information as public comments must designate in writing if part or all of the information contained in such comments should be considered as exempt from disclosure under Exemption 4 of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). Generally, Exemption 4 of the FOIA protects trade secrets and commercial or financial information that is privileged or confidential, and affords the same protections as the Trade Secrets Act, which is also applicable. We will attempt to keep confidential and protect from disclosure information that qualifies under Exemption 4. However, only data that can be available for public inspection would be used for the final rule. For information on viewing public comments, see the beginning of the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section.
