Accessibility / Nondiscrimination Bookmark (iii) If, as a result of the redetermination, a Part D plan sponsor affirms, in whole or in part, its adverse coverage determination or at-risk determination, the right to a reconsideration or expedited reconsideration by an independent review entity (IRE) contracted by CMS, as specified in § 423.600. Medical Record Submission About CBS Forgot Password ++ In paragraph (n)(2), we propose that if CMS or the prescriber under paragraph (n)(1) is dissatisfied with a reconsidered determination under § 498.5(n)(1), or a revised reconsidered determination under § 498.30, CMS or the prescriber is entitled to a hearing before an administrative law judge (ALJ).

(2) The Part D summary rating for MA-PDs will include the Part D improvement measure. We will continue to hold MA organizations and Part D sponsors accountable for the failures of their FDRs to comply with Medicare program requirements, even with these proposed changes. Existing regulations at § 422.503(b)(4)(vi) and § 423.504(b)(4)(vi) require that every sponsor's contract must specify that FDRs must comply with all applicable federal laws, regulations and CMS instructions. Additionally, we audit sponsors' compliance programs when we conduct routine program audits, and our audit process includes evaluations of sponsoring organizations' monitoring and auditing of their FDRs as well as FDR oversight. Our audits also evaluate formulary administration and processing of coverage and appeal requests in the Part C and Part D programs. FDRs often perform some or all of these functions for sponsors, so if they are non-compliant, it will come to light during the program audit and the sponsoring organization is ultimately held responsible for the FDRs' failure to comply with program requirements.

"Employers pay the majority of these costs, but the employees' share of these costs has been growing faster," creating a "hidden pay cut" for employees each year, he noted, since a worker's salary increase is offset by the increase in the cost of his or her health care premiums.
