Part D Tiering Exceptions (§§ 423.560, 423.578(a) and (c)) Prescription Drug Lists Global Coverage Plan-Level Average: We are considering requiring that average rebate amounts be calculated separately for each plan (that is, calculated at the plan-benefit-package level). In other words, the same average rebate amount would not apply to the point-of-sale price for a covered drug across all plans under one contract, nor across all contracts under one sponsor. We believe this approach would result in the calculation of more accurate average rebates because the PDE and rebate data that are submitted by sponsors demonstrate that gross drug costs and rebate levels are not the same across all plans under one contract, nor across all contracts under one sponsor. This approach would also largely be consistent with how sponsors develop cost estimates for their Part D bids because benefit designs, including formulary structure, and assumptions about enrollee characteristics and utilization vary by plan, even for multiple plans under one contract. Similarly, final payments are calculated by CMS at the plan level, based on the data submitted by the sponsor. We solicit comment on whether the most appropriate approach for calculating the average rebate amount for point-of-sale application would be to do so at the plan level, using plan-specific information, given that moving a portion of manufacturer rebates to the point of sale would impact plan liability and payments, or if another approach would be more appropriate. § 423.2410 CPT Current Procedural Terminology Cancel prescription request transaction.

Shop toggle menu Most stakeholders recommended designating opioids as frequently abused drugs. In this regard, we note Start Printed Page 56344that our current policy applies only to opioids and that we are integrating the drug management provisions of CARA with our current policy. Therefore, designating opioids as frequently abused drugs, at least in the initial implementation of drug management programs, would have the added benefit of allowing CMS and stakeholders to gain experience with the use of lock-in in the Part D program, before potentially designating other controlled substances as frequently abused drugs. Certain aged, blind, or disabled adults with incomes below the FPL Value-Based Programs CREDITABLE COVERAGE [FR Doc. 2017-25068 Filed 11-16-17; 4:15 pm] 11:24 AM ET Wed, 1 Aug 2018 Cancel Continue Considering the program integrity risk that the two previously mentioned sets of prescribers present, we must be able to accordingly protect Medicare beneficiaries and the Trust Funds. We thus propose to revise § 423.120(c)(6), as further specified in this proposed rule, to require that a Part D plan sponsor must reject, or must require its PBM to reject, a pharmacy claim (or deny a beneficiary request for reimbursement) for a Part D drug prescribed by an individual on the preclusion list. We believe we have the legal authority for such a provision because sections 1102 and 1871 of the Act provide general authority for the Secretary to prescribe regulations for the efficient administration of the Medicare program; also, section 1860D-12(b)(3)(D) of the Act authorizes the Secretary to add additional Part D contract terms as necessary and appropriate, so long as they are not inconsistent with the Part D statute. We note also that our proposal is of particular importance when considering the current nationwide opioid crisis. We believe that the inclusion of problematic prescribers on the preclusion list could reduce the amount of opioids that are improperly or unnecessarily prescribed by persons who pose a heightened risk to the Part D program and Medicare beneficiaries. In the Contract Year 2012 Final Rule for Changes to the Medicare Advantage and the Medicare Prescription Drug Benefit Programs rule (79 FR 21486), we stated that scoring methodologies should also consider improvement as an independent goal. To this end, we implemented in the CY 2013 Rate Announcement the Part C and D improvement measures that measure the overall improvement or decline in individual measure scores from the prior to the current year. Given the importance of recognizing quality improvement as an independent goal, for the 2015 Star Ratings, we proposed and subsequently finalized through the 2015 Rate Announcement and final Call Letter an increase in the weight of the improvement measure from 3 times to 5 times that of a process measure. This weight aligns the Part C and D Star Ratings program with value-based purchasing programs in Medicare fee-for-service which heavily weight improvement.
