In other words, the same average rebate amount would not apply to the point-of-sale price for a covered drug across all plans under one contract, nor across all contracts under one sponsor. We believe this approach would result in the calculation of more accurate average rebates because the PDE and rebate data that are submitted by sponsors demonstrate that gross drug costs and rebate levels are not the same across all plans under one contract, nor across all contracts under one sponsor. This approach would also largely be consistent with how sponsors develop cost estimates for their Part D bids because benefit designs, including formulary structure, and assumptions about enrollee characteristics and utilization vary by plan, even for multiple plans under one contract. Similarly, final payments are calculated by CMS at the plan level, based on the data submitted by the sponsor. We solicit comment on whether the most appropriate approach for calculating the average rebate amount for point-of-sale application would be to do so at the plan level, using plan-specific information, given that moving a portion of manufacturer rebates to the point of sale would impact plan liability and payments, or if another approach would be more appropriate.

The agency is proposing what it calls "site-neutral" reimbursements, meaning it would pay the same amount no matter where the patient is seen. It builds on the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015, which limited payments to newly established off-site clinics.

Education for Licensees All Contents © 2018, The Kiplinger Washington Editors UMP Plus provider information Compare Plans and Estimate Costs (i) Review such preferences. In the 2013 Part C and D Star Ratings, we implemented the Part C and D improvement measures (CY2013 Rate Announcement, https://www.cms.gov/​Medicare/​Health-Plans/​MedicareAdvtgSpecRateStats/​Downloads/​Announcement2013.pdf). The improvement measures address the overall improvement or decline in individual measure scores from the prior to the current year. We propose to continue the current methodology detailed in the Technical Notes for calculating the improvement measures and to codify it at §§ 422.164(f) and 423.184(f). For a measure to be included in the improvement calculation, the measure must have numeric value scores in both the current and prior year and not have had a substantive specification change during those years. In addition, the improvement measure will not include any data on measures that are already focused on improvement (for example, HOS measures focused on improving or maintaining physical or mental health). The Part C improvement measure includes only Part C measure scores, and the Part D improvement measure includes only Part D measure scores. All measures meeting these criteria would be included in the improvement measures under our proposal at paragraph (f)(1)(i) through (iv) of §§ 422.164 and 423.184.

Latest Medicare News Rights and Responsibilities We solicit comment on our proposal to add non-substantive updates to measures and using the updated measure (replacing the legacy measure) to calculate Star Ratings. In particular, we are interested in stakeholders' views whether only non-substantive updates that have been adopted by a measure steward after a consensus-based or notice and comment process should be added to the Star Ratings under this proposed authority. Further, we solicit comment on whether there are other examples or situations involving non-substantive updates that should be explicitly addressed in the regulation text or if our proposal is sufficiently extensive.
