Stock Lists (3) Review of an at-risk determination. If, on 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 7 calendar days from the date it receives the request for redetermination.
The proposal has gained steam among some Democrats, but one health official said that such a plan would “run the risk of depriving seniors of the coverage” they have.
We propose not to limit the availability of this new SEP to potential at-risk and at-risk beneficiaries. In situations where an individual is designated as a potential at-risk beneficiary or an at-risk beneficiary and later determined to be dually-eligible for Medicaid or otherwise eligible for LIS, that beneficiary should be afforded the ability to receive the subsidy benefit to the fullest extent for which he or she qualifies and therefore should be able to change to a plan that is more affordable, or that is within the premium benchmark amount if desired. Likewise, if an individual with an “at-risk” designation loses dual-eligibility or LIS status, or has a change in the level of extra help, he or she would be afforded an opportunity to elect a different Part D plan, as discussed in section III.A.11 of this proposed rule. This is also a life changing event that may have a financial impact on the individual, and could necessitate an individual making a plan change in order to continue coverage.

We propose, at paragraph § 422.208 (f)(2)(iii), other significant provisions. Proposed paragraph § 422.208 (f)(2)(iii)(A) provides that the table (published by CMS using the methodology proposed in paragraph § 422.208(f)(2)(iv)) identifies the maximum attachment point/maximum deductible for per-patient-combined insurance coverage that must be provided for 90% of the costs above the deductible or an actuarial equivalent amount. For panel sizes and deductible amounts not shown in the tables, we propose that linear interpolation may be used to identify the required deductible for panel sizes between the table values. In addition, proposed paragraph § 422.208(f)(2)(iii)(B) provides that the table applies only for capitated risk.
Sections 1860D-2(b)(4) and 1860D-14(a)(1)(D)(ii-iii) of the Act specify lower Part D maximum copayments for low-income subsidy (LIS) eligible individuals for generic drugs and preferred drugs that are multiple source drugs (as defined in section 1927(k)(7)(A)(i) of the Act) than are available for all other Part D drugs. Currently the statutory cost sharing levels are set at the maximums. CMS does not interpret the statutory language to mean that each plan can establish lower LIS cost sharing on drugs, but rather, that CMS, through rulemaking, could establish lower cost sharing than the maximum amount, and it would therefore be the same for all Part D plans.

++ In paragraph (a)(2), we propose to replace the existing language therein with a provision stating that CMS would send written notice to the individual or entity via letter of their inclusion on the preclusion list. The notice would contain the reason for the inclusion and would inform the individual or entity of their appeal rights. An individual or entity may appeal their inclusion on the preclusion list, defined in § 422.2, in accordance with Part 498.

Appeals Archive Payroll taxes collected through FICA (Federal Insurance Contributions Act) and the Self-Employment Contributions Act are a primary component of Medicare funding. The tax is 2.9% of wages, usually half paid by the employee and half paid by the employer. Moneys are set aside in a trust fund that the government uses to reimburse doctors, hospitals, and private insurance companies. Additional funding for Medicare services comes from premiums, deductibles, coinsurance, and copays.

We also propose to add § 423.153(f)(16) to state that potential at-risk beneficiaries and at-risk beneficiaries are identified by CMS or the Part D sponsor using clinical guidelines that: (1) Are developed with stakeholder consultation; (2) Are based on the acquisition of frequently abused drugs from multiple prescribers, multiple pharmacies, the level of frequently abused drugs, or any combination of these factors; (3) Are derived from expert opinion and an analysis of Medicare data; and (4) Include a program size estimate. This proposed approach to developing and updating the clinical guidelines is intended to provide enough specificity for stakeholders to know how CMS would determine the guidelines by identifying the standards we would apply in determining them.
