SENIOR BLUE 651 (HMO) Medium Relatively high 0.1 Enthusiasm for expanding the government health-insurance program for the elderly to cover all U.S. citizens is growing among Democratic political hopefuls. According to Dylan Scott at Vox.com, “Nearly every single rumored 2020 candidate in the Senate has backed Senator Bernie Sanders’s Medicare-for-all bill.” The idea polls well and the vast majority of seniors are satisfied with their current care under Medicare.

Access Member Tools We propose § 423.153(f)(13) to read: Confirmation of Selections(s). (i) Before selecting a prescriber or pharmacy under this paragraph, a Part D plan sponsor must notify the prescriber or pharmacy, as applicable, that the beneficiary has been identified for inclusion in the drug management program for at-risk beneficiaries and that the prescriber or pharmacy or both is (are) being selected as the beneficiary's designated prescriber or pharmacy or both for frequently abused drugs. (ii) The sponsor must receive confirmation from the prescriber(s) or pharmacy(ies) or both that the selection is accepted before conveying this information to the at-risk beneficiary, unless the prescriber or pharmacy has agreed in advance in its network agreement with the sponsor to accept all such selections and the agreement specifies how the prescriber or pharmacy will be notified by the sponsor of its selection.

This provision states that the Secretary may establish procedures whereby an individual currently enrolled in a non-MA health plan offered by an MA organization at the time of his or her Initial Coverage Election Period is deemed to have elected an MA plan offered by the organization if he or she does not elect to receive Medicare coverage in another way.

Columns Options to build the most comprehensive coverage Be aware that if you switch to a Medigap plan, you may need to purchase separate Part D coverage for your prescriptions, since these plans don’t cover drug costs on their own.
Suitability We understand and share these concerns. We believe that the Medicare enrollment requirement could result in a duplication of effort and, consequently, impose a burden on MA providers and suppliers as well as MA organizations and beneficiaries in the form of limiting access to providers. While we maintain that Medicare enrollment, in conjunction with MA credentialing, is the most thorough means of confirming a provider's compliance with Medicare requirements and of verifying the provider's qualifications to furnish services and items, we believe that an appropriate balance can be achieved between this program integrity objective and the desire to reduce the burden on the provider and supplier communities. Given this, we propose to utilize the same “preclusion list” concept in MA that we are proposing for Part D (described in section III.B.9.) and to eliminate the current enrollment requirement in § 422.222. We believe this approach would allow us to concentrate our efforts on preventing MA payment for items and services furnished by providers and suppliers that could pose an elevated risk to Medicare beneficiaries and the Trust Funds, an approach, as previously mentioned, similar to the risk-based process in § 424.518. This would, we believe, minimize the burden on MA providers and suppliers.
Recreational Vehicles & Marina In light of the significance of any activity that would result in a revocation under § 424.535(a), we believe that individual and entities that have engaged in inappropriate behavior should be the focus of our Part C program integrity efforts.
Immediately after the publication of the previously mentioned May 23, 2014 final rule, we undertook major efforts to educate affected stakeholders about the forthcoming enrollment requirement. Particular focus was placed on reaching out to Part D prescribers with information regarding (1) the overall purpose of the enrollment process; (2) the important program integrity objectives behind § 423.120(c)(6); (3) the mechanisms by which prescribers may enroll in Medicare (for example, via the Internet based Provider Enrollment, Chain and Ownership System (PECOS); and (4) how to complete an enrollment application. Numerous prescribers have, in preparation for the enforcement of § 423.120(c)(6), enrolled in or opted out of Medicare, and we are appreciative of their cooperation in this effort. However, based on internal CMS data, as of July 2016 approximately 420,000 prescribers—or 35 percent of the total 1.2 million prescribers of Part D drugs—whose prescriptions for Part D drugs would be affected by the requirements of § 423.120(c)(6) have yet to enroll or opt out. Of these prescribers, 32 percent are dentists, 11 percent are student trainees, 7 percent are nurse practitioners, 6 percent are pediatric physicians, and 5 percent are internal medicine physicians.
Our proposal to significantly reduce the amount of MLR data submitted to CMS would eliminate the need for CMS to continue to pay a contractor, approximately $390,000 a year for the following:
CARING FOUNDATION › Extra Help: The Extra Help federal program provides low-cost Part D prescription drug coverage to people whose incomes and savings are under a certain level. If you qualify for full Extra Help, you don't pay premiums or deductibles and your copays are very low. Partial assistance under Extra Help still reduces the costs of drug coverage.

It’s the only way to achieve universal, affordable and high-quality health insurance. While our concerns about the needed timeframe for transition in the LTC setting do not seem to have materialized, we have continuing concerns about drug waste and the costs associated with such waste in the LTC setting. Some of these concerns have been addressed by our rule requiring the short-cycle dispensing of brand drugs to Part D beneficiaries in LTC facilities in the April 2011 final rule. That rule, codified at 42 CFR 423.154, requires that all Part D sponsors require all network pharmacies servicing LTC facilities to dispense certain solid oral doses of covered Part D brand-name drugs to enrollees in such facilities in no greater than 14-day increments at a time to reduce drug waste. However, we now believe that CMS could eliminate additional drug waste and cost by no longer requiring a longer transition days' supply in the LTC setting. Therefore, we are proposing that the transition days' supply in the LTC setting be the same as it is in the outpatient setting.

Let us help! Section 1860D-4(c)(5)(C)(ii) of the Act defines an exempted individual as one who receives hospice care, who is a resident of a long-term care facility for which frequently abused drugs are dispensed for residents through a contract with a single pharmacy, or who the Secretary elects to treat as an exempted individual. Consistent with this, we propose that an exempted beneficiary, with respect to a drug management program, would mean an enrollee who: (1) Has elected to receive hospice care; (2) Is a resident of a long-term care facility, of a facility described in section 1905(d) of the Act, or of another facility for which frequently abused drugs are dispensed for residents Start Printed Page 56347through a contract with a single pharmacy; or (3) Has a cancer diagnosis.
