Sections 1860D-4(g) and (h) of the Act require the Secretary to establish processes for initial coverage determinations and appeals similar to those used in the Medicare Advantage program.

Members Only Non-governmental links[edit] President Bill Clinton attempted an overhaul of Medicare through his health care reform plan in 1993–1994 but was unable to get the legislation passed by Congress. While our concerns about the needed timeframe for transition in the LTC setting do not seem to have materialized, we have continuing concerns about drug waste and the costs associated with such waste in the LTC setting. Some of these concerns have been addressed by our rule requiring the short-cycle dispensing of brand drugs to Part D beneficiaries in LTC facilities in the April 2011 final rule. That rule, codified at 42 CFR 423.154, requires that all Part D sponsors require all network pharmacies servicing LTC facilities to dispense certain solid oral doses of covered Part D brand-name drugs to enrollees in such facilities in no greater than 14-day increments at a time to reduce drug waste. However, we now believe that CMS could eliminate additional drug waste and cost by no longer requiring a longer transition days' supply in the LTC setting. Therefore, we are proposing that the transition days' supply in the LTC setting be the same as it is in the outpatient setting.

She and her husband, Edward, had good coverage through her employer, so he signed up for Part A at 65, and she waited to sign up for benefits. A few months before she retired in July 2014, she applied for parts A and B and Edward applied for Part B. Doing so was complicated because they had to provide evidence that they had been covered by her employer since age 65. “It took several months to go through the process,” she says. She recommends starting the paperwork six months before you plan to retire, so you don’t have a gap in coverage. 92 Notices (ii) The necessary and appropriate contents of files for case management required under paragraph (f)(2) of this section. Provider Notices 2012 Once you lose employer coverage, you have eight months in which to sign up for Part B (you should do so because both retiree health benefits and coverage through COBRA are secondary to Medicare as soon as you're eligible, whether you sign up or not). If you don't sign up for Part B within that window, you'll have to wait until the next open-enrollment period (January 1 to March 31), and your monthly premium will permanently increase by 10% for each 12-month period you delay.

We are also interested in feedback on what particular effects requiring Part D sponsors to apply some manufacturer rebates at the point of sale would have on the EGWP market, as well as on how such a requirement might impact the retiree drug subsidy program.
