Surplus Lines Access to Care Standards (ACS) and ICD information January 2018 Auto Title Loans We propose to make two changes to these regulations.

For instance, older smokers can face higher surcharges than younger smokers. In plans that vary the surcharge by age, consumers who smoke will see a premium change due to the change in the tobacco use surcharge. In addition, consumers who have either started or stopped using tobacco products could see a premium change. Finally, carriers are allowed to change their tobacco rating factors with sufficient justification. This change in rating factors, similar to the change in age rating factors noted above, will also cause changes to consumer premiums.

The provisions in § 423.120(c)(5) that reflected the procedures that would comply with section 507 of MACRA are the following: Scroll to Accept If the premise of accreditation or Part D plan sponsor- or PBM-specific credentialing requirements is to ensure more stringent quality standards, then there is no reasonable explanation for why a quality-related standard term or condition could be waived for situations when the Part D plan sponsor needs a particular pharmacy in its contracted Start Printed Page 56411pharmacy network in order to meet the convenient access standards or to designate a particular pharmacy with preferred pharmacy status. A term or condition which can be dropped in such situations is by definition not “standard” according to the plain meaning of the word. Waivers or inconsistent application of such standard terms and conditions is an explicit acknowledgement that such terms and conditions are not necessary for the ability of a pharmacy to perform its core functions, and are thus neither reasonable nor relevant for any willing pharmacy standard terms and conditions.
