SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OWCP and contractor bill payment staff use Form OWCP-1500 to process bills for medical services provided by medical professionals other than medical services provided by hospitals, pharmacies, or certain other medical providers. This information is required to pay health care providers for services rendered to injured employees covered under OWCP-administered programs. Appropriate payment cannot be made without documentation of the medical services provided by the health care provider billing the OWCP. The OWCP uses information obtained to identify the patient and determine benefit eligibility. The OWCP also uses the information to decide whether services and supplies received are covered by OWCP programs and to assure that proper payment is made.
This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information if the collection of information does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection under Control Number 1240-0044. The current approval is scheduled to expire on
Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB,

* Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
* Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and
