Energy Efficiency Second, we revised paragraph § 423.120(c)(6)(ii) to address a gap in § 423.120(c)(6) regarding certain types of prescribers; such prescribers included pharmacists who may be authorized under state law to prescribe medications but are ineligible to enroll in Medicare and thus, under § 423.120(c)(6), would not have their prescriptions covered. Revised paragraph (c)(6)(ii) stated that pharmacy claims and beneficiary requests for reimbursement for Part D prescriptions written by prescribers other than physicians and eligible professionals who are nonetheless permitted by state or other applicable law to prescribe medications (defined in § 423.100 as “other authorized prescribers”) will not be rejected or denied, as applicable, by the pharmacy benefit manager (PBM) if all other requirements are met. This meant that Start Printed Page 56442the enrollment requirement specified in § 423.120(c)(6) would not apply to other authorized prescribers—that is, to individuals who are ineligible to enroll in or opt out of Medicare because they do not meet the statutory definition of “physician” or “eligible professional” yet who are otherwise legally authorized to prescribe drugs.

It has been our longstanding policy that Part D plans cannot restrict access to certain Part D drugs to specialty pharmacies within their Part D network in such a manner that contravenes the convenient access protections of section 1860D-4(b)(1)(C) of the Act and § 423.120(a) of our regulations. (See Q&A at https://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Prescription-Drug-Coverage/PrescriptionDrugCovContra/Downloads/QASpecialtyAccess_051706.pdf). In 2006, we informed sponsors they cannot restrict access to drugs on the “specialty/high cost” tier to a subset of network pharmacies, except when necessary to meet FDA-mandated limited dispensing requirements (for example, Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategies (REMS) processes) or to ensure the appropriate dispensing of Part D drugs that require extraordinary special handling, provider coordination, or patient education when such extraordinary requirements cannot be met by a network pharmacy (that is, a contracted network pharmacy that does not belong to the restricted subset). Since 2006, it has been our general policy that these types of special requirements for Part D plan sponsors to limit dispensing of specialty drugs be directly linked to patient safety or regulatory reasons.

Health Conditions We received feedback in response to the Request for Information included in the 2018 Call Letter related to simplifying and streamlining appeals processes. To that end, we believe this proposed change will help further these goals by easing burden on MA plans without compromising informing the beneficiary of the progress of his or her appeal. If this proposal is finalized, and plans are no longer required to notify an enrollee that his or her case has been sent to the IRE, we would expect plans to redirect resources previously allocated to issuing this notice to more time-sensitive activities such as review of pre-service and post-service coverage requests, improved efficiency in appeals processing, and provision of health benefits in an optimal, effective, and efficient manner.
