Worksheets, Forms, and Guides Latest Articles Individual Medical Plans Medicare eligibility As discussed later in this section, CMS believes that it is challenging to apply the current standardized meaningful difference evaluation (which is applied consistently to all plans) in a manner that accommodates and evaluates important considerations objectively. CMS is concerned that the current evaluation may create unintended consequences related to innovative benefit designs. In addition, CMS's efforts in implementing more sophisticated approaches to consumer engagement and decision-making should help beneficiaries, caregivers, and family members make informed plan choices. For example, in MPF, plan details have been expanded to include MA and Part D benefits and a new consumer friendly tool for the CY 2018 Medicare open enrollment period which will assist beneficiaries in choosing a plan that meets their unique and financial needs based on a set of 10 quick questions.

Navigators October 2012 ++ We propose to revise § 417.478(e) to state as follows: Your Benefit Plan A: If you’re unhappy with the medical care or services you are receiving, or if you’re unhappy with our processes, you can make a complaint. This is also known as filing a grievance. Call or write to Member Services within 60 days of the incident. We’ll look into your complaint and give you our answer within 30 calendar days.

The cost of Medicare Advantage plans varies by carrier, county of residence, and plan selected. We estimate that it would take all 30 sponsors and PBMs with Part D adjudication systems a total of approximately 93,600 hours in 2019 for software developers and programmers to program their systems to comply with the requirements of § 423.120(c)(6). In 2020 and 2021, we do not anticipate any system costs. The sponsors and PBMs would need approximately 6 to 12 months to perform system changes and testing. The total hour figures are based on a 6-month preparation and testing period. There are roughly 1,040 full-time working hours in a 6-month period. Using an estimate of 3 full-time software developers and programmers at $96.22/hour resulted in the aforementioned 93,600 hour figure (3 workers × 1,040 hour × 30 sponsors/PBMs) at a cost of $9,006,192 (93,600 × $96.22/hour) for 2019. There would be no burden associated with 2020 and 2021.

This comprehensive booklet is published by the Minnesota Board on Aging and is available on line and through the Senior LinkAge Line 1-800-333-2433. If MA plans substantially expand coverage of non-medical care, the gap between the plans and original Medicare would widen, likely drawing more people into MA plans.

The driver of the savings is the removal of burden for federal employees to review Quality Improvement Project (QIP) attestations. MA organizations are required to annually attest that they have an ongoing QIP in progress and the Central Office reviews these attestation submissions. To estimate amounts, we considered how many QIP attestations are performed annually.
