I. Background

    In FR Doc. 2013-15766, published on Wednesday, July 3, 2013 (78 FR 
40272), there was an error that is identified and corrected in the 
Correction of Errors section below.

II. Summary of Errors

    In section ``VI.G. Accounting Statement and Table'' of the 
Regulatory Impact Analysis section, in the Transfers column of Table 
31, under the heading Medicare HH Survey & Certification Costs, we

amount was ``-$18.6 Million'' instead of ``$18.6 Million.''

the Transfers column of Table 31, under the heading Medicare ``HH 
Survey & Certification Costs'', the amount ``-$18.6 Million'' is 
corrected to read ``$18.6 Million.''
