Most stakeholders recommended designating opioids as frequently abused drugs. In this regard, we note Start Printed Page 56344that our current policy applies only to opioids and that we are integrating the drug management provisions of CARA with our current policy. Therefore, designating opioids as frequently abused drugs, at least in the initial implementation of drug management programs, would have the added benefit of allowing CMS and stakeholders to gain experience with the use of lock-in in the Part D program, before potentially designating other controlled substances as frequently abused drugs.
Medicare Extra for All But you must pay for parts of its coverage, which may not be cheap. So not everyone should sign up right away. Here's advice about how to decide whether you should join the program, when and how.
Me/My Family Where can I get covered medical items? Initial enrollment period under age 65: If you qualify for Medicare through disability, the fourth month of your IEP is usually the one in which you receive your 25th disability payment. Social Security will let you know when your Medicare coverage starts. You get a second seven-month IEP when you turn 65 and become eligible for Medicare based on age instead of disability — but your coverage continues automatically, without your having to reapply.
The IFR had established the previous compensation structure for agents/brokers as it applied to the MA and Part D programs. In particular, the IFR limited compensation for renewal enrollments to no greater than 50 percent of the rate paid for the initial enrollment on a 6-year cycle. This structure had proven to be complicated to implement and monitor, as it required the MA organization or Part D sponsor to track the compensation paid for every enrollee's initial enrollment and calculate the renewal rate based on that initial payment. To the extent that there was confusion about the required levels of compensation or the timing of compensation, it seemed that there was an uneven playing field for MA organizations and Part D sponsors operating in the same geographic area.

The PPACA instituted a number of measures to control Medicare fraud and abuse, such as longer oversight periods, provider screenings, stronger standards for certain providers, the creation of databases to share data between federal and state agencies, and stiffer penalties for violators. The law also created mechanisms, such as the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation to fund experiments to identify new payment and delivery models that could conceivably be expanded to reduce the cost of health care while improving quality.
(1) Written policies and procedures. A sponsor must document its drug management program in written policies and procedures that are approved by the applicable P&T committee and reviewed and updated as appropriate.

The overall rating with the improvement measures used in the comparison would include up to two adjustments, the reward factor (if applicable) and the CAI. The overall rating without the improvement measures used in the comparison would include up to two adjustments, the reward factor (if applicable) and the CAI.

Find your plan a. By revising paragraph (b)(18); See what plan type your peers might select In the May 23, 2013 final rule (78 FR 31294), we stated that Medication Therapy Management (MTM) activities (defined at § 423.153(d)) qualify as QIA, provided they meet the requirements set forth in §§ 422.2430 and 423.2430. To meet these requirements, the activity must fall into one of the categories listed in current paragraph (a)(1) of those regulations, which means the activity must: (1) Improve health quality; (2) increase the likelihood of desired health outcomes in ways that are capable of being objectively measured and of producing verifiable results; (3) be directed toward individual enrollees, specific groups of enrollees, or other populations as long as enrollees do not incur additional costs for population-based activities; and (4) be grounded in evidence-based medicine, widely accepted best clinical practice, or criteria issued by recognized professional medical associations, accreditation bodies, government agencies or other nationally recognized health care quality organizations. In our prior MLR rulemaking, we did not attempt to determine whether all MTM programs that comply with § 423.153(d) would necessarily meet the QIA requirements at § 422.2430 (for MA-PD contracts) and § 423.2430 (for stand-alone Part D contracts). Subsequent to publication of the May 23, 2013 final rule, we have received numerous inquiries seeking clarification regarding whether MTM programs are QIA. To address those questions and resolve any ambiguities or uncertainties, we are now proposing to specifically address MTM programs in the MLR regulations.

July 7, 2018 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:
