Medicaid Title XIX Advisory Committee Understand CHP+ Blue Cross offers Cost, PPO and PDP plans with Medicare contracts. Enrollment in these Blue Cross plans depends on contract renewal. When you're first eligible for Medicare, you have a 7-month Initial Enrollment Period to sign up for Part A and/or Part B. File a claim The proposed revision of 423.265 eliminates the requirement for two enhanced benefit plans offered by a PDP organization in a service area to be “substantially different”. If finalized this will result in increased plan flexibilities and a potential increase in beneficiary plan choice. We expect this provision to reduce plan burden and could provide a very modest savings to plans sponsors of approximately $60,000. The savings represent an estimate of the time not spent by certifying actuaries to ensure that a meaningful difference threshold is met between two PDP EA offerings. Based on the preliminary CY 2018 landscape, if all PDP organizations that submitted an EA benefit design had also submitted the maximum of two EA plans, the result would be approximately 275 EA to EA plan pairings that would have required actuary time spent in evaluation of the meaningful difference requirement. We further estimate that it would take an actuary 2 hours to write a meaningful difference requirement. Based on the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) latest wage estimates, https://www.bls.gov/​oes/​current/​oes152011.htm, the mean hourly wage for actuaries, occupation code 15-2011 is $54.87 which when multiplied by 2 to allow 100 percent for overhead and fringe benefits is $109.74 an hour. Thus our total estimated burden is 275 EAs × 2 Hours per EA = 550 hours at a cost of 550 × $109.74 = $60357. While there is potential savings for PDP plan sponsors under this proposal, these savings could be offset for organizations who make the business decision to prepare and submit additional bids if this proposal is finalized. If the EA to EA threshold was the sole barrier to a PDP sponsor offering a second EA plan, (that is, the sponsor currently only offers one enhanced plan), based on the CY2018 PDP landscape, we could anticipate a modest increase of approximately 125 additional enhanced plans (15 percent increase). Although we believe it unlikely that all PDP sponsors would opt to add an additional plan. 3 A contract is assigned three stars if it meets at least one of these three criteria: (a) Its average CAHPS measure score is at or above the 30th percentile and lower than the 60th percentile, AND it is not statistically significantly different from the national average CAHPS measure score; OR (b) its average CAHPS measure score is at or above the 15th percentile and lower than the 30th percentile, AND the reliability is low, AND the score is not statistically significantly lower than the national average CAHPS measure score; OR (c) its average CAHPS measure score is at or above the 60th percentile and lower than the 80th percentile, AND the reliability is low, AND the score is not statistically significantly higher than the national average CAHPS measure score.

Early psychosis You start dialysis again, or you get a kidney transplant within 12 months after the month you stopped getting dialysis. Third, we believe the two-pronged approach of the proposed provision would provide appropriate notice for this type of formulary change. The general notice requirement of proposed § 423.120(b)(iv)(C) would require that, before making any generic substitutions, a Part D sponsor provide all prospective and current enrollees with notice in the formulary and other applicable beneficiary communication materials stating that the Part D sponsor can remove, or change the preferred or tiered cost-sharing of, any brand name drug immediately without additional advance notice (beyond the general advance notice) when a new equivalent generic is added. This would, for instance, include the Evidence of Coverage (EOC). Proposed § 423.120(b)(iv)(C) would also require that this general notice advise prospective and current enrollees that they will get direct notice about any specific drug substitutions made that would affect them and that the direct notice would advise them of the steps they could take to request coverage determinations and exceptions. Therefore, the general notice would advise enrollees about what might take place before any changes occur.

This can cause delays. Use the phone enrollment option only if you have a month or two lead time before your intended Medicare effective date.
