Communications

From: Jason Smathers

To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

1) All emails to or from Julie Bataille where the email contains the name "Sebelius" anywhere in the subject or body.
2) All emails to or from Julie Bataille where Kathleen Sebelius was the sender, receiver, or carbon copied on the email.

You may limit responsive records in both of the above to those created in September, October, or November 2013.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Jason Smathers

From: Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services

Hello,

I cannot confirm whether 111420137089 and 2014-0335-KG respond to the same request. HHS assigns one number and CMS/FOIA assigns yet another number. You may want to contact HHS regarding your initial request.

Thank you,

1) All emails to or from Julie Bataille where the email contains the name "Sebelius" anywhere in the subject or body.

From: CMS FOIA Request

Hello Again,

For future reference, you may want to locate the "Dept. MR" number given by you for responses. The letter that you attached and the "Dept. MR" number on the request are identical. More than likely, this refers to the request you are possibly seeking.
Thanks,

From: CMS FOIA Request

Yes.

From: MuckRock

Hello,

Could you verify that the subject matter corresponds appropriately? There have been a number of cases where CMS has failed to use the correct MR tracking number. We want to ensure that requests are tracking appropriately.

Thank you.

From: MuckRock

Excellent. Thank you!
