In cases in which the Part D sponsor would necessarily have to send notice after the fact, for example instances in which a drug is not released to the market until after the beginning of the plan year and the Part D sponsor then immediately makes a generic substitution, the proposed general notice would have already advised enrollees that they would receive information about any specific drug generic substitutions that affected them and that they would still be able to request coverage determinations and exceptions. While the timing would most likely mean most enrollees would only be able to make such requests after receiving a generic drug fill, in the vast majority of cases, an enrollee could not be certain that a generic substitution would not work unless he or she actually tried the generic drug. Additionally, we are strongly encouraging Part D sponsors to provide the retrospective direct notices of these generic substitutions (including direct notice to affected enrollees and notice to entities including CMS) no later than by the end of the month after which the change becomes effective. While sponsors are required to report this information to both enrollees and entities including CMS, we currently are not proposing to codify the end of month timing requirement; however, if we were to finalize this provision and thereafter find that Part D sponsors were not timely providing retrospective notice, we would reexamine this policy.

Jump up ^ https://www.cms.gov/ReportsTrustFunds/downloads/tr2010.pdf Medicare's annual open enrollment is months away, but there are still opportunities to change your coverage Original Medicare is largely a fee-for-service program that pays for health care regardless of how successful the treatments are for patients. People are covered for care from any doctor or hospital that accepts Medicare, and nearly all do. If you’re paying a premium for Part A. In this case you can drop your Part A and Part B coverage and get a Marketplace plan instead. As provided at § 422.100(f)(4) and (5) and § 422.101(d)(2) and (3), all Medicare Advantage (MA) plans (including employer group waiver plans (EGWPs) and special needs plans (SNPs)), must establish limits on enrollee out-of-pocket cost sharing for Parts A and B services that do not exceed the annual limits established by CMS. CMS added §§ 422.100(f)(4) and (f)(5), effective for coverage in 2011, under the authority of sections 1852(b)(1)(A), 1856(b)(1), and 1857(e)(1) of the Act in order not to discourage enrollment by individuals who utilize higher than average levels of health care services (that is, in order for a plan not to be discriminatory) (75 FR 19709-11). Section 1858(b)(2) of the Act requires a limit on in-network out-of-pocket expenses for enrollees in Regional MA Plans. In addition, Local Preferred Provider Organization (LPPO) plans, under § 422.100(f)(5), and Regional PPO (RPPO) plans, under section 1858(b)(2) of the Act and § 422.101(d)(3), are required to have a “catastrophic” limit inclusive of both in- and out-of-network cost sharing for all Parts A and B services, the annual limit which is also established by CMS. All cost sharing (that is, deductibles, coinsurance, and copayments) for Parts A and B services, excluding plan premium, must be included in each plan's Maximum Out-of-Pocket (MOOP) amount subject to these limits. In the Advance Notice of Methodological Changes for Calendar Year (CY) 2016 for Medicare Advantage (MA) Capitation Rates, Part C and Part D Payment Policies and 2016 Call Letter, we explained how entities that sponsor Medicaid managed care organizations (MCOs) and affiliated D-SNPs can promote coverage of an integrated Medicare and Medicaid benefit through existing authority for seamless continuation of coverage of Medicaid MCO members as they become eligible for Medicare. We received positive comments from state Medicaid agencies that supported this enrollment mechanism and requested that we clarify the process for approval of seamless continuation of coverage as a mechanism to promote enrollment in integrated D-SNPs that deliver both Medicare and Medicaid benefits. We also received comments from beneficiary advocates asking that additional consumer protections, including requiring written beneficiary confirmation and a special enrollment period for those individuals who transition from non-Medicare products to Medicare Advantage. We believe that our proposal, described later in this section, adequately addresses the concerns on which these requests are based, given that the default enrollment process would be permissible only for individuals enrolled in a Medicaid managed care plan in states that support this process. This means that the Medicare plan into which individuals would be defaulted would be one that is offered by the same parent organization as their existing Medicaid plan, such that much of the information needed by the MA plan would already be in the possession of the MA organization to facilitate the default enrollment process. Also, default enrollment would not be permitted if the state does not actively support this process, ensuring an accurate source of data for use by MA organizations to appropriately identify and notify individuals eligible for default enrollment. b.
