August 2015 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. expand icon I have End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD).

MedPlus Medicare Supplement Policies are underwritten by First Care, Inc. Metrology Lab Lee Schafer House Small Business Committee Section 17005 of the 21st Century Cures Act (the Cures Act) modified section 1851(e)(2) of the Act to eliminate the MADP and to establish, beginning in 2019, a new OEP—hereafter referred to as the “new OEP”—to be held from January 1 to March 31 each year. Subject to the MA plan being open to enrollees as provided under § 422.60(a)(2), this new OEP allows individuals enrolled in an MA plan to make a one-time election during the first 3 months of the calendar year to switch MA plans or to disenroll from an MA plan and obtain coverage through Original Medicare. In addition, this provision affords newly MA-eligible individuals (those with Part A and Part B) who enroll in a MA plan, the opportunity to also make a one-time election to change MA plans or drop MA coverage and obtain Original Medicare. Newly eligible MA individuals can only use this new OEP during the first 3 months in which they have both Part A and Part B. Similar to the old OEP, enrollments made using the new OEP are effective the first of the month following the month in which the enrollment is made, as outlined in § 422.68(c). In addition, an MA organization has the option under section 1851(e)(6) of the Act to voluntarily close one or more of its MA plans to OEP enrollment requests. If an MA plan is closed for OEP enrollments, then it is closed to all individuals in the entire plan service area who are making OEP enrollment requests. All MA plans must accept OEP disenrollment requests, regardless of whether or not it is open for enrollment.
