CMS has the authority under section 1857(e)(1) of the Act, incorporated for Part D by section 1860D-12(b)(3)(D) of the Act, to establish additional contract terms that CMS finds “necessary and appropriate,” as well as authority under section 1860D-11(d)(2)(B) of the Act to propose regulations imposing “reasonable minimum standards” for Part D sponsors. Using this authority we previously issued regulations to ensure that multiple plan offerings by Part D sponsors represent meaningful differences to beneficiaries with respect to benefit packages and plan cost structures. At that time, separate meaningful difference rules were concurrently adopted for MA and stand-alone PDPs. This section addresses proposed changes to our regulations pertaining strictly to meaningful Start Printed Page 56418differences in PDP plan offerings.

Integration of CARA and the Current Part D Opioid DUR Policy and OMS Q. Does Kaiser Permanente offer Medicare health plans? For the Media Under a point-of-sale rebate policy designed as we have described in this comment solicitation, beneficiaries would see lower prices at the pharmacy point-of-sale, and on Plan Finder, beginning immediately in the year the policy takes effect. Lower point-of-sale prices would result directly in lower cost-sharing costs for non-low income beneficiaries, especially for those who use drugs in highly competitive, highly-rebated categories or classes. For low income beneficiaries whose out-of-pocket costs are subsidized through Medicare's low-income cost-sharing subsidy, cost-sharing savings resulting from lower point-of-sale prices would accrue to the government.
