ALL CHANGES IN ADMINISTRATIVE COSTS. Changes in administrative costs will also affect premiums. Some health plans are finding that increased and changing regulatory requirements associated with the administration of provisions in the ACA are increasing their administrative costs. Decreases in enrollment can result in increased costs due to allocating fixed costs over a smaller membership base. Premiums must cover all of these costs. Depending on the circumstances in any particular state, changes in marketing and administrative costs can put upward or downward pressure on premiums. As noted above, increased uncertainty in the market may lead insurers to increase risk margins to protect themselves from adverse selection. However, the ACA’s medical loss ratio requirements limit the share of premiums attributable to administrative costs and margins.

State Number of Exchange Insurers By JORDAN RAU Our rationale for this change is that individuals on the preclusion list are demonstrably problematic. This has negative implications not only for the Trust Funds but also for beneficiary safety. Thus, it is imperative that a beneficiary switch to a new prescriber who is not on the preclusion list as soon as practicable. Under the current Start Printed Page 56446prescriber enrollment requirement, the vast majority of prescribers who are not enrolled in or opted-out of Medicare likely do not pose a risk to the beneficiary or the Trust Funds, and therefore we can allow a 3-month provisional supply/90-day time period for each prescription written by such a prescriber. In addition, our proposed policy would eliminate the difficulty sponsors and PBMs have under the current “per drug” provisional supply policy in determining whether the beneficiary already received a provisional supply of a drug. We seek specific comment on the modifications we are proposing as to the provisional coverage and time period.

In paragraph (c)(5)(v), we state that with respect to requests for reimbursement submitted by Medicare beneficiaries, a Part D sponsor may not make payment to a beneficiary dependent upon the sponsor's acquisition of an active and valid individual prescriber NPI, unless there is an indication of fraud. If the sponsor is unable to retrospectively acquire an active and valid individual prescriber NPI, the sponsor may not seek recovery of any payment to the beneficiary solely on that basis.

We propose to modify § 422.506(a)(3) to remove language that indicates late non-renewals may be permitted by CMS so that there would only be one process—mutual termination under §§ 422.508—that is applicable if CMS is not taking action under § 422.506(b) or § 422.510. Also, we propose to amend §§ 422.508 and 423.508 to clarify that organizations that request to non-renew a contract after the first Monday in June are in effect requesting that CMS agree to mutually terminate their contract.
