KMedicare Enrollment Articles Skip To Main Content In 2003 Congress passed the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act, which President George W. Bush signed into law on December 8, 2003. Part of this legislation included filling gaps in prescription-drug coverage left by the Medicare Secondary Payer Act that was enacted in 1980. The 2003 bill strengthened the Workers' Compensation Medicare Set-Aside Program (WCMSA) that is monitored and administered by CMS. (9) The individual is making an election within 2 months of a gain, loss, or change to Medicaid or LIS eligibility, or notification of such a change, whichever is later. MembersMembers Plan Information Financing Medicare Extra This feature is not available for this document. As discussed previously, in the November 15, 2016 final rule, we added or updated a number of other MA regulatory provisions (for example, § 422.501 and 422.510) in order to fully incorporate our new enrollment requirements. Because we are proposing to replace these enrollment requirements with an approach centered upon a preclusion list—and to help Start Printed Page 56450ensure that providers, suppliers, MA organizations, PACE organizations, and other applicable stakeholders comply with our proposed requirements—we believe that these other MA regulatory provisions must also be revised to reflect this change. To this end, we propose the following revisions: Section 704(a)(3) of CARA gives the Secretary the discretion to limit the SEP for FBDE beneficiaries outlined in section 1860D-1(b)(3)(D) of the Act. This limitation is related to, but distinct from, other changes to the duals' SEP proposed in section III.A.11 of this proposed rule (as discussed later). A limitation under a sponsor's drug management program can only be effective as long as the individual is enrolled in that plan or another plan that also has a drug management program. Therefore, this proposed SEP limitation would be an important tool to reduce the opportunities for LIS-eligible beneficiaries designated as at-risk to switch plans. If an individual is determined to be an at-risk beneficiary, and is permitted to change plans using the duals' SEP, he or she could avoid the drug management program by leaving the plan before the program can be started or by enrolling in a PDP that does not have a drug management program. This would allow the beneficiary to circumvent the lock-in program and not receive the care coordination such a program provides. Even if an-risk beneficiary joined another plan that had a drug management program in place, there would be challenges in terms of preventing a gap managing their potential or actual overutilization of frequently abused drugs due to timing of information sharing between the plans and possible difference in provider networks. Employee Handbooks Rebated Drugs: We are considering requiring that the average rebate amount be calculated using only drugs for which manufacturers provide rebates. We believe including non-rebated drugs in this calculation would serve only to drive down the average manufacturer rebates, which would dampen the intended effects of any change. MEDIA RELATIONS Since 2013, there have been 4,617 POS edits submitted into MARx by plan sponsors for 3,961 unique beneficiaries as a result of the drug utilization review policy. That results in approximately 923 edits annually. If we assume that the number of edits or access to coverage limitations will double due to the addition of pharmacy and prescriber “lock-in” to OMS, to approximately 1,846 such limitations, we estimate 3,692 initial and second notices (number of limitations (1,846) multiplied by the number of notices (2)) total corresponding to such edits/limitations. For purposes of this estimate, we assume that all beneficiaries who receive initial notices will be placed on an access limitation. We estimate it would take an average of 5 minutes (0.083 hours) at $39.22/hour for an insurance claim and policy processing clerk to prepare each notice. The burden of 307 hours (3,692 notices × 0.083 hour) at a cost of $12,040.54 (307 hour × $39.22/hr) in 2019 was estimated in section III of this rule. Provider Notices 2013 • Did not enroll in a Medicare prescription drug plan when first eligible for Medicare; or On the other hand, those who are 65 and who are receiving Social Security benefits must have Medicare Part A, which covers hospital insurance. If you are receiving Social Security benefits, you will be enrolled automatically. The penalty for Part D equals 1% of the cost of a standard Medicare drug plan premium for every month you delay enrolling.

Family premiums reflect the premiums for each covered adult plus the premiums for each of the three oldest covered children younger than 21. Therefore, consumers with family coverage who experience a change in family composition could face a premium change. Family contracts with dependents under age 21 will experience the full impact of the change in the age factors discussed above. ++ Paragraph (b) would state: “If an MA organization receives a request for payment by, or on behalf of, an individual or entity that is excluded by the OIG or an individual or entity that is included on the preclusion list, defined in § 422.2, the MA organization must notify the enrollee and the excluded individual or entity or the individual or entity included on the preclusion list in writing, as directed by contract or other direction provided by CMS, that payments will not be made. Payment may not be made to, or on behalf of, an individual or entity that is excluded by the OIG or is included on the preclusion list.” Fill status notification. Q.
