Footer Menu Second, on October 26, 2017, the President directed that executive agencies use all appropriate emergency authorities and other relevant authorities to address drug addiction and opioid abuse, and the Acting Secretary of Health and Human Services declared a nationwide Public Health Emergency to address the opioid crisis. In addition, the CDC has declared opioid overuse a national epidemic, both of which are relevant factors.

Kleban will reassess his decision to choose the HSA instead of Medicare every year. But he plans to use the HSA for his post-retirement medical expenses.

(12) Selection of prescribers and pharmacies. (i) A Part D plan sponsor must select, as applicable— As stated in the October 22, 2009, proposed rule (74 FR 54670 through 73) and April 15, 2010, final rule (75 FR 19736 through 40), CMS's goal for the meaningful difference evaluation was to ensure a proper balance between affording beneficiaries a wide range of plan choices and avoiding undue beneficiary confusion in making coverage selections.
