How do I get Medicare Part D? For States Neighborhood Stabilization Program 2 Reporting NSP2 Working Past Retirement Card PDP and MAPD Overview by State GRAPHICS & INTERACTIVES We intend to continue to base the types of information collected in the Part C Star Ratings on section 1852(e) of the Act, and we propose at § 422.162(c)(1) that the type of data used for Star Ratings will be data consistent with the section 1852(e) limits and data gathered from CMS administration of the MA program. In addition, we propose in § 422.162(c)(1) and in § 423.182(c)(1) to include measures that reflect structure, process, and outcome indices of quality, including Part C measures that reflect the clinical care provided, beneficiary experience, changes in physical and mental health, and benefit administration, and Part D measures that reflect beneficiary experiences and benefit administration. The measures encompass data submitted directly by MA organizations (MAOs) and Part D sponsors to CMS, surveys of MA and Part D enrollees, data collected by CMS contractors, and CMS administrative data. We also propose, primarily so that the regulation text is complete on this point, a regulatory provision at §§ 422.162(c)(2) and 423.182(c)(2) that requires MA organizations and Part D plan sponsors to submit unbiased, accurate, and complete quality data as described in paragraph(c)(1) of each section. Our authority to collect quality data is clear under the statute and existing regulations, such as section 1852(e)(3)(A) and 1860D-4(d) and §§ 422.12(b)(2) and 423.156. We propose the paragraph (c)(2) regulation text to ensure that the quality ratings system regulations include a regulation on this point for readers and to avoid confusion in the future about the authority to collect this data. In addition, it is important that the data underlying the ratings are unbiased, accurate, and complete so that the ratings themselves are reliable. This proposed regulation text would clearly establish the sponsoring organization's responsibility to submit data that can be reliably used to calculate ratings and measure plan performance. Appliances & Lighting Views Tax Filing Requirement 3,300 30,000 2,612 Knowing when to enroll is critical, because there's no single "right" time. It depends entirely on your situation: We also propose, in paragraph (c)(2)(i)(E) and (2)(ii), that MA organizations must obtain approval from CMS before implementing default enrollment. Under our proposal in paragraph (c)(2)(i)(B), CMS approval would be granted only if the applicable state approves the default enrollment through its agreement with the MA organization. MA organizations would be required to implement default enrollment in a non-discriminatory manner, consistent with their obligations under § 422.110; that is, MA organizations could not select for default enrollment only certain of the members of the affiliated Medicaid plan who were identified as eligible for default enrollment. Lastly, we propose that CMS may suspend or rescind approval at any time if it is determined that the MA organization is not in compliance with the requirements. We request comment whether this authority to rescind approval should be broader; we have considered whether a time limit on the approval (such as 2 to 5 years) would be appropriate so that CMS would have to revisit the processes and procedures used by an MA organization under this proposed regulation in order to assure that the regulation requirements are still being followed. We are particularly interested in comment on this point in conjunction with our alternative (discussed later in this section) proposal to codify the existing parameters for this type of seamless conversion default enrollment such that all MA organizations would be able to use this default enrollment process for newly eligible and newly enrolled Medicare beneficiaries in the MA organization's non-Medicare coverage.

(a) Agreement to comply with regulations and instructions. The MA organization agrees to comply with all the applicable requirements and conditions set forth in this part and in general instructions. Compliance with the terms of this paragraph is material to the performance of the MA contract. The MA organization agrees— In accordance with our general proposed policy at §§ 422.166(h) and 423.186(h), the overall rating would be posted on HPMS and Medicare Plan Finder, with specific messages for lack of ratings for certain reasons. Applying that rule, if an MA-PD contract has only one of the two required summary ratings, the overall rating would not be calculated and the display in HPMS would be the flag “Not enough data available.” If you want coverage designed to supplement Medicare, you can find out more about Medigap policies.

The overall rating without the improvement measures used in the comparison would include up to two adjustments, the reward factor (if applicable) and the CAI. The higher overall rating would be used for the overall rating.

In conjunction with related Part D opioid overutilization policies that address prospective opioid use, the current policy has played a key role in reducing high risk opioid overutilization in the Part D program by 61 percent (representing over 17,800 beneficiaries) from 2011 (pre-policy pilot) through 2016, even as the number of beneficiaries enrolled in Part D increased overall during this period from 31.5 million to 43.6 million enrollees, or a 38 percent increase.[3] (2) Is a resident of a long-term care facility, of a facility described in section 1905(d) of the Act, or of another facility for which frequently abused drugs are dispensed for residents through a contract with a single pharmacy; or Find a plan Contact Us Senior Toolkit Request Frequently Asked Questions - Prescription Drug Plan (B) Improvement scores less than zero would be assigned either 1 or 2 stars for the improvement Star Rating.
