NEWSROOM Articles In addition, we believe that reducing confusion in the marketplace surrounding this issue will improve beneficiary protections while improving enrollee incentives to choose follow-on biological products over reference biological products. (This proposed provision to classify follow-on biological products as generic drugs are for the purposes of cost sharing for non-LIS cost sharing in the catastrophic portion of the benefit and LIS enrollees in any phase of the benefit.) Improved incentives to choose lower cost alternatives will reduce costs to Part D enrollees and the Part D program. OACT estimates this proposal will provide a modest savings of $10 million in 2019, with savings increasing by approximately $1 million each year through 2028.

The Star Ratings measure scores for the consolidated entity's first plan year would be based on enrollment-weighted measure scores using the July enrollment of the measurement period of the consumed and surviving contracts for all measures, except the survey-based and call center measures. Security | Privacy | Terms of Use | Notice of Non-Discrimination and Translation Assistance Contact us online > To illustrate how Part D sponsors and their intermediaries would report costs under the approach we are considering, we provide the following example: Suppose that under a performance-based payment arrangement between a Start Printed Page 56428Part D sponsor and its network pharmacy, the sponsor will: (1) Recoup 5 percent of its total Part D-related payments to the pharmacy at the end of the contract year for the pharmacy's failure to meet performance standards; (2) recoup no payments for average performance; or (3) provide a bonus equal to 1 percent of total payments to the pharmacy for high performance. For a drug that the sponsor has agreed to pay the pharmacy $100 at the point of sale, the pharmacy's final reimbursement under this arrangement would be: (1) $95 for poor performance; (2) $100 for average performance; or (3) $101 for high performance. However, under all performance scenarios, the negotiated price reported to CMS on the PDE at the point of sale for this drug would be $95, or the lowest reimbursement possible under the arrangement. Thus, if a plan enrollee were required to pay 25 percent coinsurance for this drug, then the enrollee's costs under all scenarios would be 25 percent of $95, or $23.75, which is less than the $25 the enrollee would pay today (when the negotiated price is likely to be reported as $100). Any difference between the reported negotiated price and the pharmacy's final reimbursement for this drug would be reported as DIR at the end of the coverage year. The sponsor would report $0 as DIR under the poor performance scenario ($95 minus $95), − $5 as DIR under the average performance scenario ($95 minus $100), and − $6 as DIR under the high performance scenario ($95 minus $101), for every covered claim for this drug purchased at this pharmacy.

These provisions, which focus on NPI submission and validation, are no longer effective because the January 1, 2016 end-date for their applicability has passed. Since that time, however, and as explained in detail in section (b)(1)(b) below, congressional legislation requires us to revisit some of the provisions in former paragraph (c)(5) and, as warranted, to re-propose them in what would constitute a new paragraph (c)(5). We believe that these new provisions would not only effectively implement the legislation in question but also enhance Part D program integrity by streamlining and strengthening procedures for ensuring the identity of prescribers of Part D drugs. This would be particularly important in light of our preclusion list proposals.

(3) An analysis of Medicare or other drug utilization or scientific data. p These changes and increased complexities, and more than a decade of program experience, lead us to believe that our current regulations are no longer sufficient to ensure that tiering exceptions are understood by beneficiaries and adjudicated by plan sponsors in the manner the statute contemplates. For this reason, we propose to amend §§ 423.560, 423.578(a) and 423.578(c) to revise and clarify requirements for how tiering exceptions are to be adjudicated and effectuated.

With support from our contractors, we undertook research to provide scientific evidence as to whether MA organizations or Part D sponsors that enroll a disproportionate number of vulnerable beneficiaries are systematically disadvantaged by the current Star Ratings. In 2014, we issued a Request for Information to gather information directly from organizations to supplement the data that CMS collects, as we believe that plans and sponsors are uniquely positioned to provide both qualitative and quantitative information that is not available from other sources. In February and September 2015, we released details on the findings of our research.[43] We have also reviewed reports about the impact of socio-economic status (SES) on quality ratings, such as the report published by the NQF posted at www.qualityforum.org/​risk_​adjustment_​ses.aspx and the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission's (MedPAC) Report to the Congress: Medicare Payment Policy posted at http://www.medpac.gov/​docs/​default-source/​reports/​march-2016-report-to-the-congress-medicare-payment-policy.pdf?​sfvrsn=​0. We have more recently been reviewing reports prepared by the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE [44] ) and the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine on the issue of measuring and accounting for social risk factors in CMS' value-based purchasing and quality reporting programs, and we have been considering options on how to address the issue in these programs. On December 21, 2016, ASPE submitted a Report to Congress on a study it was required to conduct under section 2(d) of the Improving Medicare Post-Acute Care Transformation (IMPACT) Act of 2014. The study analyzed the effects of certain social risk factors of Medicare beneficiaries on quality measures and measures of resource use in nine Medicare value-based purchasing programs. The report also included considerations for strategies to account for social risk factors in these programs. A January 10, 2017 report released by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine provided various potential methods for measuring and accounting for social risk factors, including stratified public reporting.[45] Call 612-324-8001 Medical Cost Plan | Minneapolis Minnesota MN 55487 Hennepin Call 612-324-8001 Medical Cost Plan | Minneapolis Minnesota MN 55488 Hennepin Call 612-324-8001 Medical Cost Plan | Young America Minnesota MN 55550 Carver
