Check out our complete listing of plans for families and individuals: In sections II.D.10 and 11. of this proposed rule, we are proposing in § 423.120(c)(6) to require that Part D sponsors cover a provisional supply of a drug before they reject a claim based on a prescriber's inclusion on the preclusion list. The proposed provision would also require that Part D sponsors provide written notice to the beneficiary of the prescriber's presence on the preclusion list and take reasonable efforts to furnish written notice to the prescriber.

This is necessarily a rough adjustment, both because fringe benefits and overhead costs vary significantly from employer to employer, and because methods of estimating these costs vary widely from study to study. Nonetheless, there is no practical alternative and we believe that doubling the hourly wage to estimate total cost is a reasonably accurate estimation method. CMS would send written notice to the individual or entity of their inclusion on the preclusion list. The notice would contain the reason for the inclusion and would inform the individual or entity of their appeal rights.Start Printed Page 56453 215-925-RINK|riverrink@drwc.org Metrology Lab Medicare Prescription Drug Coverage OUR TEAM Health maintenance organizations (HMO) Learn More › § 460.50 The current policy has two aspects. First, in the CY 2013 final Call Letter and subsequent supplemental guidance, we provided guidance about our expectations for Part D plan sponsors to retrospectively identify beneficiaries who are at high risk for potential opioid overutilization and provide appropriate case management aimed at coordinated care.[4] More specifically, we currently expect Part D plan sponsors' Pharmacy and Therapeutics (P&T) committees to establish criteria consistent with CMS guidance to retrospectively identify potential opioid overutilizers at high risk for an adverse event enrolled in their plans who may warrant case management because they are receiving opioid prescriptions from multiple prescribers and pharmacies. Enrollees Start Printed Page 56342with cancer or in hospice are excluded from the current policy, because the benefit of their high opioid use may outweigh the risk associated with such use.

In deciding whether to include the improvement measures in a contract's final highest rating, CMS applies the following rules: (ii) Use a single, uniform exceptions and appeals process which includes procedures for accepting oral and written requests for coverage determinations and redeterminations that are in accordance with § 423.128(b)(7) and (d)(1)(iv).

He died this year at 69. (b) Purpose. Ratings calculated and assigned under this subpart will be used by CMS for the following purposes: Beginning with 2017 Star Ratings, we implemented the CAI that adjusts for the average within-contract disparity in performance associated with the percentages of beneficiaries who receive a low income subsidy and/or are dual eligible (LIS/DE) and/or have disability status. We developed the CAI as an interim analytical adjustment while we developed a long-term solution. The adjustment factor varies by a contract's categorization into a final adjustment category that is determined by a contract's proportion of LIS/DE and beneficiaries with disabilities. By design, the CAI values are monotonic in at least one dimension (LIS/DE or disability status) and thus, contracts with larger LIS/DE and/or disability percentages realize larger positive adjustments. MA-PD contracts can have up to three rating-specific CAI adjustments—one for the overall Star Rating and one for each of the summary ratings (Part C and Part D). MA-only contracts can have one adjustment for the Part C summary rating. PDPs can have one adjustment for the Part D summary rating. We propose to codify the calculation and use of the reward factor and the CAI in §§ 422.166(f)(2) and 423.186(f)(2), while we consider other alternatives for the future.
