To estimate the potential increase in the number of enrollments and disenrollments from the new OEP, we considered the percentage of MA-enrollees who used the old OEP that was available from 2007 through 2010. For 2010, the final year the OEP existed before the MADP took effect, we found that approximately 3 percent of individuals used the OEP. While the parameters of the old OEP and new OEP differ slightly, we believe that this percentage is the best approximation to determine the burden associated with this change. In January 2017, there were approximately 18,600,000 individuals enrolled in MA plans. Using the 3 percent adjustment, we expect that 558,000 individuals (18.6 million MA beneficiaries × 0.03), would use the OEP to make an enrollment change.
Durable medical equipment (DME) The preclusion list would be updated on a monthly basis. Prescribers would be added or removed from the list based on CMS' internal data that indicate, for instance: (1) Prescribers who have recently been convicted of a felony that, Start Printed Page 56445consistent with § 424.535(a)(33), CMS determines to be detrimental to the best interests of the Medicare program, and (2) prescribers whose reenrollment bars have expired. As a particular prescriber's status with respect to the preclusion list changes, the applicable provisions of § 423.120(c)(6) would control. To illustrate, suppose a prescriber in March 2020 is convicted of a felony that CMS deems detrimental to Medicare's best interests. Pharmacy claims for prescriptions written by the individual would thus be rejected by Part D sponsors or their PBMs upon the prescriber being added to the preclusion list. Conversely, a prescriber who was revoked under § 424.535(a)(4) but whose reenrollment bar has expired would be removed from the preclusion list; claims for prescriptions written by the individual would therefore no longer be rejected based solely on his or her inclusion on the preclusion list. CMS would regularly review the preclusion list to determine whether certain individuals should be added to or removed therefrom based on changes to their status.

Premium Changes From a Consumer Perspective CMS supports beneficiary decision-making by providing tools and materials that focus on key beneficiary purchasing criteria, such as eligibility to enroll in SNPs, need for Part D coverage, Part D formulary and benefit coverage, plan type preference (for example, HMO vs. PPO), network providers, medical benefit coverage, premiums, and the brand or organization offering the plan options.
