We note however, that we propose a 3 attempts/10 business days requirement for sponsors to conclude that a prescriber is unresponsive to case management in § 423.153(f)(4) discussed later in this section.

As a result of the change in factors, there will be a 20-50 percent increase in child rates, depending on age. Because of the single risk pool and index rating requirements, the increase in child rates results in a decrease in adult rates, albeit of a significantly smaller magnitude. The actual decrease will vary by insurer, depending upon the adult/child enrollment.

Table 3—Appeals Measure Star Ratings Reductions by the Incomplete Data Error Rate As discussed earlier in this preamble, we are proposing to integrate the lock-in provisions with existing Part D Opioid DUR Policy/OMS. Determinations made in accordance with any of those processes, proposed at § 423.153(f), and discussed previously, are interrelated issues that we collectively refer to as an “at-risk determination” made under a drug management program. The at-risk determination includes prescriber and/or pharmacy selection for lock-in, beneficiary-specific POS claim edits for frequently abused drugs, and information sharing for subsequent plan enrollments. Given the concomitant nature of the at-risk determination and associated aspects of the drug management program applicable to an at-risk beneficiary, we expect that any dispute under a plan's drug management program will be adjudicated as a single case involving a review of all aspects of the drug management program for the at-risk beneficiary. While a beneficiary who is subject to a Part D plan sponsor's drug management program always retains the right to request a coverage determination under existing § 423.566 for any Part D drug that the beneficiary believes may be covered by their plan, we believe that appeals of an at-risk determination made under proposed § 423.153(f) should involve consideration of all relevant elements of that at-risk determination. For example, if a Part D plan determines that a beneficiary is at-risk, implements a beneficiary-specific claim edit on 2 drugs that beneficiary is taking and locks that beneficiary into a specific pharmacy, the affected beneficiary should not be expected to raise a dispute about the pharmacy selection and about one of the claim edits in distinct appeals.

If the change does not meaningfully impact the numerator or denominator of the measure, the measure would continue to be included in the Star Ratings. For example, if additional codes are added that increase the number of numerator hits for a measure during or before the measurement period, such a change would not be considered substantive because the sponsoring organization would generally benefit from that change. This type of administrative (billing) change has no impact on the current clinical practices of the plan or its providers, and thus would not necessitate exclusion from the Star Ratings System of any measures updated in this way. © 2018 Cable News Network.
