MA plans are popular, in part, because some of them cover things that are not covered by original Medicare — primarily limited coverage of routine dental, hearing, and vision expenses, and memberships in health clubs. People using original Medicare must pay for these items, often by purchasing specialized insurance.

Message Hi, Nondiscrimination Notice & Translations Plain Language We are aware that some may be concerned about not requiring advance CMS approval or advance direct notice to enrollees prior to making the permitted generic substitutions, or requiring a transition fill. But we would only permit immediate substitution when the generics are deemed therapeutically equivalent to the brand name drug being removed by the Federal Drug and Food Administration (FDA) and meet other requirements specified later in this section. This would not apply to follow-on biological products under current FDA guidance. The FDA has, in fact noted that, “A generic drug is a medication created to be the same as an existing approved brand-name drug in dosage form, safety, strength, route of administration, quality, and performance characteristics.” (“Generic Drug Facts,” see FDA Web site, https://www.fda.gov/​Drugs/​ResourcesForYou/​Consumers/​BuyingUsingMedicineSafely/​UnderstandingGenericDrugs/​ucm167991.htm, accessed September 19, 2017, hereafter FDA, “Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA): Generics”.) Additionally, immediate generic substitution has long been an established bedrock of commercial insurance, and we are not aware of any harm to the insured resulting from such policies. Generally, no. It’s against the law for someone who knows you have Medicare to sell you a Marketplace plan. 11:24 AM ET Wed, 1 Aug 2018 Part B Late Enrollment Penalty If you don't sign up for Part B when you're first eligible, you may have to pay a late enrollment penalty for as long as you have Medicare. Your monthly premium for Part B may go up 10% for each full 12-month period that you could have had Part B, but didn't sign up for it. Usually, you don't pay a late enrollment penalty if you meet certain conditions that allow you to sign up for Part B during a special enrollment period.[71] A. Contact Member Services.

Heating & Cooling The costs and savings, as reflected in the total net savings, associated with our preclusion list proposals would be those identified in the collection of information section of this rule: Specifically, (1) the system costs associated with the Part D preclusion list; (2) costs associated with the preparation and sending of written notices to affected Part D prescribers and beneficiaries; and (3) the savings that would accrue from individuals and entities no longer being required to enroll in or opt-out of Medicare to prescribe Part D drugs or furnish Part C services and items. Specifically, we project a total net savings, as described in detail in the collection of information portion of this rule, over the first 3 years of this rule of $35,526,652 ($3,423,852 for Part D + $32,102,800 for Part C), or a 3-year annual average of $11,842,217). Costs associated with an alternative approach are found in the Alternatives Considered portion of this section. We would be responsible for the development and monitoring of the preclusion list using its own resources. This would be funded as part of our screening activities. We do not anticipate a change in the number of individuals or entities billing for service, for we would only be denying payment to those parties that meet the conditions of the preclusion list. Costs associated with an alternative approach are found in the Alternatives Considered section of this rule.
