For plan year 2019, we propose the clinical guidelines in this preamble to be the OMS criteria established for plan year 2018, which meet the proposed standards for the clinical guidelines for the following reasons: First, as described earlier, the OMS criteria incorporate a 90 MME threshold cited in a CDC Guideline, which was developed by experts as the level that prescribers should avoid reaching with their patients. This threshold does not function as a prescribing limit for the Part D program; rather, it identifies potentially risky and dangerous levels of opioid prescribing in terms of misuse or abuse. Second, the OMS criteria also incorporate a multiple prescriber and pharmacy count. A high MED level combined with multiple prescribers and/or pharmacies may also indicate the abuse or misuse of opioids due to the possible lack of care coordination among the providers for the patient. Third, the OMS criteria have been revised over time based on analysis of Medicare data and with stakeholder input via the annual Parts C&D Call Letter process. Indeed, many stakeholders recommended the use of the CDC Guideline as part of the clinical guidelines the Secretary must develop, with some noting that they would need to be used in a way that accounts for use of multiple providers, which the OMS criteria do. Fourth, these criteria are familiar to Part D sponsors—they will already have experience with them by Start Printed Page 563452019, and they were established with an estimate of program size.

As discussed previously, in the November 15, 2016 final rule, we added or updated a number of other MA regulatory provisions (for example, § 422.501 and 422.510) in order to fully incorporate our new enrollment requirements. Because we are proposing to replace these enrollment requirements with an approach centered upon a preclusion list—and to help Start Printed Page 56450ensure that providers, suppliers, MA organizations, PACE organizations, and other applicable stakeholders comply with our proposed requirements—we believe that these other MA regulatory provisions must also be revised to reflect this change. To this end, we propose the following revisions:

Authorized Delegate Substantive changes (for example, major changes to methodology) to existing measures would be proposed and finalized through rulemaking. In paragraphs (d)(2) of §§ 422.164 and 423.184, we propose to initially solicit feedback on whether to make the substantive measure update through the Call Letter prior to the measurement period for which the update would be initially applicable. For example, if the change announced significantly expands the denominator or population covered by the measure (for example, the age group included in the measures is expanded), the measure would be moved to the display page for at least 2 years and proposed through rulemaking for inclusion in Star Ratings. We intend this process for substantive updates to be similar to the process we would use for adopting new measures under proposed paragraph (c). As appropriate, the legacy measure may remain in the Star Ratings while the updated measure is on the display page if, for example, the updated measure expands the population covered in the measure and the legacy measure would still be relevant and measuring a critical topic to continue including in the Star Ratings while the updated measure is on display. Adding the updated measure to the Star Ratings would be proposed through rulemaking.
This depends on your employment status with the state or a participating GIC municipality: Most people qualify for Medicare if they are 65 or older. However, how you sign up may vary, depending on your situation and, in some cases, how you qualify for Medicare. For example, some beneficiaries are automatically enrolled in Medicare, while others need to manually sign up for it.
The sole purpose of the adjusted measure scores is for the determination of the CAI values. The adjusted measure scores would be converted to a measure-level Star Rating using the measure thresholds for the Star Ratings year that corresponds to the measurement period of the data employed for the CAI determination.
