As is currently done today, the adjusted measure scores of a subset of the Star Ratings measures would serve as the foundation for the determination of the index values. Measures would be excluded as candidates for adjustment if the measures are already case-mix adjusted for SES (for example, CAHPS and HOS outcome measures), if the focus of the measurement is not a beneficiary-level issue but rather a plan or provider-level issue (for example, appeals, call center, Part D price accuracy measures), if the measure is scheduled to be retired or revised during the Star Rating year in which the CAI is being applied, or if the measure is applicable to only Special Needs Plans (SNPs) (for example, SNP Care Management, Care for Older Adults measures). We propose to codify these paragraphs for determining the measures for CAI values at paragraph (f)(2)(ii).The categorization of a beneficiary as LIS/DE for the CAI would rely on the monthly indicators in the enrollment file. For the determination of the CAI values, the measurement period would correspond to the previous Star Ratings year's measurement period. For the identification of a contract's final adjustment category for its application of the CAI in the current year's Star Ratings Program, the measurement period would align with the Star Ratings year. If a beneficiary was designated as full or partially dually eligible or receiving a LIS at any time during the applicable measurement period, the Start Printed Page 56405beneficiary would be categorized as LIS/DE. For the categorization of a beneficiary as disabled, we would employ the information from the Social Security Administration (SSA) and Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) record systems. Disability status would be determined using the variable original reason for entitlement (OREC) for Medicare. The percentages of LIS/DE and disability per contract would rely on the Medicare enrollment data from the applicable measurement year. The counts of beneficiaries for enrollment and categorization of LIS/DE and disability would be restricted to beneficiaries that are alive for part or all of the month of December of the applicable measurement year. Further, a beneficiary would be assigned to the contract based on the December file of the applicable measurement period. We propose to codify these paragraphs for determining the enrollment counts at paragraph (f)(2)(i)(B).
By Jamie Leventhal Part D plan sponsors are required to upload these new notice templates into their internal claims systems. We estimate that 219 Part D plan sponsors (31 PDP parent organizations and 188 MA-PD parent organizations) will be subject to this requirement. We estimate that it will take on average 5 hours at $81.90/hour for a computer programmer to upload the notices into their claims systems. This would result in a total burden of 1,095 hours (5 hours × 219 sponsors) at a cost of $89,680.50 (1,095 hour × $81.90/hr). In aggregate, the burden to prepare and upload these additional notices was estimated as 1,402 hours (307 hours + 1,095 hours) at a cost of $101,721 ($12,040 + $89,681) in 2019 in section III. of this proposed rule.
