We solicit comment on the proposed technical changes, particularly whether a proposed revision here would be more expansive than anticipated or have unintended consequences for sponsoring organizations or for CMS's oversight and monitoring of the MA and Part D programs.
Universal state health coverage has rallied Democrats in the governor’s race. But even with the state’s size and wealth, it would be hard to achieve.
Medicarerights.org An alternative method of ensuring beneficiaries have access to opioids as necessary would be to require the sponsor immediately provide a transfer to a new provider when the first provider is on the preclusion list. The new provider should be able to make an assessment and either provide appropriate SUD treatment or continue the opioid or pain management regimen, as medically appropriate. We are interested to hear from commenters how to operationalize this and whether there is a better method to ensure appropriate medication is provided without transferring the beneficiary to a new provider. We are proposing a 90-day provisional coverage period in lieu of a 3-month drug supply/90-day time period established in existing § 423.120(c)(6), which was described on page 6 in the Technical Guidance on Implementation of the Part D Prescriber Enrollment Requirement (Technical Guidance) issued on December 29, 2015. Under the existing regulation (which, as noted above, we have not enforced), a sponsor or MA-PD must track a separate 90-day consecutive time period for each drug covered as a provisional supply from the initial date-of-service; the sponsor or MA-PD must not reject a claim or deny a beneficiary's request for reimbursement until the 90-day time period has passed or a 3-month supply has been dispensed, whichever comes first. Under our proposal, however, a beneficiary would have one 90-day provisional coverage period with respect to an individual on the preclusion list. Accordingly, a sponsor/PBM would track one 90-day time period from the date the first drug is dispensed to the beneficiary pursuant to a prescription written by the individual on the preclusion list. This dispensing event would trigger a written notice and a 90-day time period for the beneficiary to fill any prescriptions from that particular precluded prescriber and to find another prescriber during that 90-day time period.
In § 422.260(a), to revise the paragraph to read: Scope. The provisions of this section pertain to the administrative review process to appeal quality bonus payment status determinations based on section 1853(o) of the Act. Such determinations are made based on the overall rating for MA-PDs and Part C summary rating for MA-only contracts for the contract assigned pursuant to subpart 166 of this part 422.

Costs and deductibles remain much too high: 28 percent of nonelderly adults, or 41 million Americans, remain underinsured, which means that out-of-pocket costs exceed 10 percent of income.3 In the wealthiest nation on earth, 28.8 million individuals remain uninsured.4
Nevada 2 -1.1% (SilverSummit) 0% (Health Plan of Nevada) Provider Quality Information In paragraph (c)(6)(ii), we propose to state as follows: “Except as provided in paragraph (c)(6)(iv) of this section, a Part D sponsor must deny, or must require its PBM to deny, a request for reimbursement from a Medicare beneficiary if the request pertains to a Part D drug that was prescribed by an individual who is identified by name in the request and who is included on the preclusion list, defined in § 423.100.” As with paragraph (c)(6)(i), this would help ensure that Part D sponsors comply with our proposed requirement that payments not be made for prescriptions written by prescribers who are on the preclusion list.
(2) Review of an at-risk determination. If, on an expedited redetermination of an at-risk determination made under a drug management program in accordance with § 423.153(f), the Part D plan sponsor reverses its at-risk determination, the Part D plan sponsor must implement the change to the at-risk determination as expeditiously as the enrollee's health condition requires, but no later than 72 hours after the date the Part D plan sponsor receives the request for redetermination.
