Customer Service Main Line: Due to the uncertainty of whether CSRs will continue to be paid, some state regulators have allowed or even required insurers to build CSR costs into their premiums. There are different approaches to adjust premiums, either allocating additional costs solely to silver plans or across all plans (it would be appropriate for all insurers in a state to follow the same methodology). If levied on silver plans only, premium increases could average nearly 20 percent, over and above premium increases due to medical inflation and other factors.2 Although those who receive premium subsidies would be insulated from the full increase in premiums, nonsubsidized enrollees would face the full increase, potentially affecting their enrollment behavior and therefore the morbidity of the risk pool.

Read, Watch, Listen ADDRESSES: NYTCo The current text of § 423.120(c)(6)(v) states that a Part D sponsor or its PBM must, upon receipt of a pharmacy claim or beneficiary request for reimbursement for a Part D drug that a Part D sponsor would otherwise be required to deny in accordance with § 423.120(c)(6), furnish the beneficiary with (a) a provisional supply of the drug (as prescribed by the prescriber and if allowed by applicable law); and (b) written notice within 3 business days after adjudication of the claim or request in a form and manner specified by CMS. The purpose of this provisional supply requirement is to give beneficiaries notice that there is an issue with respect to future Part D coverage of a prescription written by a particular prescriber.

Potential changes to the ACA. Policymakers are considering changes to the ACA or to its regulations. These changes include: allowing states to vary the ACA’s issue, rating, or benefit requirements; changing the premium and cost-sharing subsidies; expanding the availability of association health plans; and allowing carriers to sell across state lines. There is uncertainty regarding the potential increased utilization of services for enrollees who may fear they will lose coverage due to possible changes in federal or state legislation.

§ 423.2038 While the proposed provisions would additionally require general notice that certain generic substitutions could take place immediately, Part D sponsors are already creating the documents in which that notice would appear such as formularies and EOCs. Similarly, § 423.128(d)(2)(ii) already requires Web sites to include information about drug removals and changes to cost-sharing. In other words, the proposed general notice requirement would not require efforts in addition to routine updates to beneficiary communications materials and Web sites. In theory, if Part D sponsors that would have been denied requests to make generic changes could do so under the proposed provision, they would have somewhat more of a burden since the proposed provision does require notice including direct notice to affected enrollees. However, our practice has been to approve all or virtually all generic substitutions that would meet the requirements of this proposed provision—which again means that the proposed provisions would just permit those substitutions to take place sooner.

Member Yes No According to § 422.660(c) and § 423.650(c), CMS must issue a determination on appealed application denials by September 1 in order to enter into an MA contract for coverage starting January 1 of the following year. We codified this September 1 deadline in the April 15, 2010, final rule (45 FR 19699). As stated in the in the 2009 proposed rule (74 FR 54650 and 54651), we proposed to modify § 422.660(c) and § 423.660(c), which then specified that the notice of any decision favorable to a Part C or D applicant must be issued by July 15 for the contract in question to be effective on January 1 of the following year. However, in that rulemaking, we inadvertently overlooked other regulatory provisions that address the date by which a favorable decision must be made on an appeal of a CMS determination that an entity is not qualified for a Part C or Part D contract.

Once in a plan, whether it was a CMS-initiated enrollment or a choice they made on their own, most LIS beneficiaries do not make changes during the year. Of all LIS beneficiaries who were eligible for the SEP in 2016, less than 10 percent utilized it. Overall, we have seen slight growth of SEP usage over the past 5 years (for example, less than 8 percent in 2012, approximately 9 percent in 2014).
