Section 422.506 is amended by— Let Us Help If the change narrows the denominator or population covered by the measure with no other changes, the updated measure would be used in the Star Ratings program without interruption. For example, if an additional exclusion—such as excluding nursing home residents from the denominator—is added, the change would be considered non-substantive and would be incorporated automatically. In our view, changes to narrow the denominator generally benefit Star Ratings of sponsoring organizations and should be treated as non-substantive for that reason. 2 Administration Browse our plans: About Medicare Articles Rhode Island 2 8.7% (Neighborhood HP) 10.7% (BCBS of RI) Managing Health Care Costs The following tables summarize the 10-year impacts we have modeled for when 33, 66, 90, and 100 percent of all manufacturer rebates are applied at the point of sale: [53] (2)(i) An MA-PD must have both Part C and Part D summary ratings and scores for at least 50 percent of the measures required to be reported for the contract type to have the overall rating calculated. b. Redesignating paragraphs (a)(4) and (5) as paragraphs (a)(3) and (4); and Vacation Property VISION Our goal with this proposed requirement is to ensure that the D-SNP plans receiving these passive enrollments provide high-quality care, coverage and administration of benefits. As passive enrollments, in some sense, are a benefit to a plan, by providing an enrollee and associated payments without the plan having successfully marketed to the enrollee, we believe that it is important that these enrollments are limited to plans that have demonstrated commitment to quality. Further, it is important to ensure that when we are making an enrollment decision for a beneficiary who does not make an alternative coverage choice that we are guided by the beneficiary's best interests, which are likely served by a plan that is rated as having average or above-average performance on the MA Stars Rating System. However, we recognize that MA Star Ratings do not capture performance for those services that would be covered under Medicaid, including community behavioral health treatment and long-term services and supports. We welcome comments on the process for determining qualification for passive enrollment under this proposal and particularly on the minimum quality standards. We request that commenters identify specific measures and minimum ratings that would best serve our goals in this proposal and are specific or especially relevant to coverage for dually eligible beneficiaries.

Changes to benefit packages (e.g., through changes in cost-sharing requirements or benefits covered) can affect claim costs and therefore premiums, even if a plan’s metal level remains unchanged. For 2018, changes have been made to the rules regarding the allowable variation in actuarial value (AV), which measures the relative level of plan generosity. Plan designs must result in an AV within a limited range around 60 percent for bronze plans, 70 percent for silver plans, 80 percent for gold plans, and 90 percent for platinum plans. Previously, variations of up to 2 percentage points above or below the target AV were allowed.
