The information collection request is being revised to include one additional data element for PACE organizations only, Total Subordinated Liabilities. The addition of the new data element will actually reduce the time to analyze the financial standing of PACE organizations because we will no longer have to contact the PACE organizations to establish whether or not the organization's total liabilities calculation includes subordinated debt.Form Number:CMS-906 (OCN: 0938-0469);Frequency:Annually, Quarterly;Affected Public:Private Sector: Business or other for-profits and Not-for-profit institutions;Number of Respondents:648;Total Annual Responses:1,281;Total Annual Hours:428. (For policy questions regarding this collection contact Joe Esposito at 410-786-1129. For all other issues call 410-786-1326.)
