Enrollees would have a free choice of medical providers, which would include any provider that participates in the current Medicare program. Copayments would be lower for patients who choose centers of excellence that deliver high-quality care, as determined by such measures as the rate of hospital readmissions.

Section 423.2480 is amended— Understand your plan, learn about health savings accounts, and watch helpful videos. Because of increases in medical costs and changes in utilization since the current regulatory standards for PIP stop-loss insurance were adopted, we are concerned that the current regulation requires stop-loss insurance on more generous and more expensive terms than is necessary. Our goal in developing this proposal was to identify the point at which most, if not all, physicians and physician groups would be subject to the substantial loss so that the requirement for the provision of Start Printed Page 56462stop-loss protection and the parameters of that protection would be tailored to address that risk. We intend to avoid regulatory requirements that require protection that is broader than the minimum required under the statute. In developing the new minimum attachment points for the stop-loss protection that is required under the statute, one goal is to provide flexibility to MA organizations and the physicians and physician groups that participate in PIPs in selecting between combined stop-loss insurance and separate professional services and institutional services stop loss insurance.

Health Insurance Quotes § 422.111 MembersMembers The error rate for the Part C and Part D appeals measures using the TMP or audit data and the projected number of cases not forwarded to the IRE for a 3-month period would be used to identify contracts that may be subject to an appeals-related IRE data completeness reduction. A minimum error rate is proposed to establish a threshold for the identification of contracts that may be subject to a reduction. The establishment of the threshold allows the focus of the possible reductions on contracts with error rates that have the greatest potential to distort the signal of the appeals measures. Since the timeframe for the TMP data is dependent on the enrollment of the contract, with smaller contracts submitting data from a three-month period, medium-sized contracts submitting data from a 2-month period, and larger contracts submitting data from a one-month period, the use of a projected number of cases allows a consistent time period for the application of the criteria proposed.

Much has been said about rural counties left with only one or no insurance options on the Obamacare exchanges. State insurance commissioners, insurers and others have been working hard to successfully fill those gaps. In the meantime, the real dearth of coverage may exist among Medicare Advantage insurers. According to a recent report from the Kaiser Family Foundation, 147 counties, across 14 states have no Medicare Advantage insurer this year.  plans in your area Multi-State Plan ProgramToggle submenu We are using these goals to guide our proposal and how we interpret and apply the proposed regulations once finalized.

In addition, section 1851(e)(6) of the Act permits MA organizations, at their discretion, to choose not to accept enrollment requests during the open enrollment period (that is, choose to be closed to accept enrollments for all or a portion of the enrollment period). The Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act of 2003 (MMA) amended section 1851(e)(2) of the Act to further establish open enrollment periods during which MA-eligible individuals were limited to a single election to (that is, enroll, disenroll, or change MA plans) during such period.

MEDICAID & MEDICARE Section 1860D-4(c)(5)(C) of the Act contains a definition for “at-risk beneficiary” that we propose to codify at § 423.100. In addition, although the section 1860D-4(c)(5) of the Act does not explicitly define a “potential at-risk beneficiary,” it contemplates a beneficiary who is potentially at-risk. Accordingly, we propose to define these two terms at § 423.100 as follows: Potential at-risk beneficiary means a Part D eligible individual—(1) Who is identified using clinical guidelines (as defined in § 423.100); or (2) With respect to whom a Part D plan sponsor receives a notice upon the beneficiary's enrollment in such sponsor's plan that the beneficiary was identified as a potential at-risk beneficiary (as defined in paragraph (1) of this definition) under the prescription drug plan in which the beneficiary was most recently enrolled, such identification had not been terminated upon disenrollment, and the new plan has adopted the identification. At-risk beneficiary means a Part D eligible individual—(1) who is—(i) Identified using clinical guidelines (as defined in § 423.100); (ii) Not an exempted beneficiary; and (iii) Determined to be at-risk for misuse or abuse of such frequently abused drugs under a Part D plan sponsor's drug management program in accordance with the requirements of § 423.153(f); or (2) With respect to whom a Part D plan sponsor receives a notice upon the beneficiary's enrollment in such sponsor's plan that the beneficiary was identified as an at-risk beneficiary (as defined in paragraph (1) of this definition) under the prescription drug plan in which the beneficiary was most Start Printed Page 56343recently enrolled, such identification had not been terminated upon disenrollment, and the new plan has adopted the identification. The distinction between a “potential at-risk beneficiary” and an “at-risk beneficiary” is important for a few reasons that we will explain later in this preamble. Also, we added the phrase, “and the new plan has adopted the identification” to both definitions for cases where a beneficiary has been identified as a potential at-risk or at-risk beneficiary by the immediately prior plan to indicate that the beneficiary's status in the subsequent plan is not automatic.
