The Daily Cut As discussed in section III.A.11 of this proposed rule, we are also proposing to revise § 423.38(c)(4) to make the SEP for FBDE or other subsidy-eligible individuals available only in certain circumstances. As further explained in section III.A.11, we also are proposing to establish a new SEP at § 423.38(c)(9) to permit any beneficiary to make an enrollment change when he or she has a gain, loss, or change in Medicaid or LIS eligibility.

Specifically, we propose to add a new paragraph (b)(5)(iv) to § 423.120 to permit Part D sponsors to immediately remove, or change the preferred or tiered cost-sharing of, brand name drugs and substitute or add therapeutically equivalent generic drugs provided specified requirements are met. The generic drug would need to be offered at the same or a lower cost-sharing and with the same or less restrictive utilization management criteria originally applied to the brand name drug. The Part D sponsor could not have as a matter of timing been able to previously request CMS approval of the change because the generic drug had not yet been released to the market. Also, the Part D sponsor must have previously provided prospective and current enrollees general notice that certain generic substitutions could occur without additional advance notice. As proposed, we would permit Part D sponsors to substitute a generic drug for a brand name drug immediately rather than make that change effective, for instance, at the start of the next month. However, we solicit comment as to whether there would be a reason to require such a delay, especially given the fact that we are proposing not to require advance direct notice (rather, only advance general notice) or CMS approval. The proposed regulation would also require that, when generic drug substitutions occur, Part D sponsors must provide direct notice to affected enrollees and other specified notice to CMS and other entities. We also propose to specify in a revision to Start Printed Page 56414§ 423.120(b)(3)(i)(B) that the transition process is not applicable in cases in which a Part D sponsor substitutes a generic drug for a brand name drug under paragraph (b)(6) of this section.

(ii) Exception for identification by prior plan. If a beneficiary was identified as a potential at-risk or an at-risk beneficiary by his or her most recent prior plan and such identification has not been terminated in accordance with paragraph (f)(14) of this section, the sponsor meets the requirements in paragraph (f)(2)(i) of this section, so long as the sponsor obtains case management information from the previous sponsor and such information is clinically adequate and up to date.
(3) Review of an at-risk determination. If, on appeal of an at-risk determination made under a drug management program in accordance with § 423.153(f), the determination by the Part D plan sponsor is reversed in whole or in part by the independent review entity, or at a higher level of appeal, the Part D plan sponsor must implement the change to the at-risk determination within 72 hours from the date it receives notice reversing the determination. The Part D plan sponsor must inform the independent review entity that the Part D plan sponsor has effectuated the decision.

Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), HHS. Since the inception of the Part D program, Part D statute, regulations, and sub-regulatory guidance have referred to “mail-order” pharmacy and services without defining the term “mail order”. Unclear references to the term “mail order” have generated confusion in the marketplace over what constitutes “mail-order” pharmacy or services. This confusion has contributed to complaints from pharmacies and beneficiaries regarding how Part D plan sponsors classify pharmacies for network participation, the Plan Finder, and Part D enrollee cost-sharing expectations. Additionally, pharmacies that are not mail-order pharmacies, but that may offer home delivery services by mail (relative to that pharmacy's overall operation), have complained because Part D plan sponsors classified them as mail-order pharmacies for network participation and required them to be licensed in all United States, territories, and the District of Columbia, as would be required for traditional mail-order pharmacies providing a mail-order benefit.
Blue is Living In paragraph (c)(5)(ii), we state that a Part D sponsor must ensure that the lack of an active and valid individual prescriber NPI on a network pharmacy claim does not unreasonably delay a beneficiary's access to a covered Part D drug, by taking the steps described in paragraph (c)(5)(iii) of this section.
