In § 422.224, we propose to: While CMS generally seeks to encourage the utilization of lower cost follow-on biological products, we propose to limit inclusion of follow-on biological products in the definition of generic drug to purposes of non-LIS catastrophic cost sharing and LIS cost sharing only because we want to avoid causing any confusion or misunderstanding that CMS treats follow-on biological products as generic drugs in all situations. We do not believe that would be appropriate because the same FDA requirements for generic drug approval (for example, therapeutic equivalence) do not apply to biosimilar biological products, currently the only available follow-on biological products. Accordingly, CMS currently considers biosimilar biological products more like brand name drugs for purposes of transition or midyear formulary changes because they are not interchangeable. In these contexts, treating biosimilar biological products the same as generic drugs would incorrectly signal that CMS has deemed biosimilar biological products (as differentiated from interchangeable biological products) to be therapeutically equivalent. This could jeopardize Part D enrollee safety and may generate confusion in the marketplace through conflation with other provisions due to the many places in the Part D statute and regulation where generic drugs are mentioned. Therefore, we believe the proposed change to treat follow-on biological products as generics should be limited to purposes of non-LIS catastrophic and LIS cost sharing only. aAnswers from licensed insurance agents Medicare overview information on this website was developed by the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association to help consumers understand certain aspects about Medicare.

Where can I get covered medical items? Reverse Mortgages 2015: 29 Be well If you work for a company with fewer than 20 employees, however, Medicare is considered your primary coverage and your employer’s insurance pays second. You generally must sign up for Medicare Part A and Part B at 65, although sometimes small employers negotiate with their insurers to provide primary coverage to people over 65.

Flexible Spending Accounts Social Media Presence SHRM Store In summary, this proposed rule would implement the CARA Part D drug management program provisions by integrating them with the current Part D Opioid Drug Utilization Review (DUR) Policy and Overutilization Monitoring System (OMS) (“current policy”). As explained in more detail later in this section, this integration would mean that Part D sponsors implementing a drug management program could limit an at-risk beneficiary's access to coverage of opioids beginning 2019 through a point-of-sale (POS) claim edit and/or by requiring the beneficiary to obtain opioids from a selected pharmacy(ies) and/or prescriber(s) after case management and notice to the beneficiary. To do so, the beneficiary would have to meet clinical guidelines that factor in that the beneficiary is taking a high-risk dose of opioids over a sustained time period and that the beneficiary is obtaining them from multiple prescribers and multiple pharmacies. This proposed rule would also implement a limitation on the use of the special enrollment period (SEP) for low income subsidy (LIS)-eligible beneficiaries who are identified as potential at-risk beneficiaries.
