Premium Services Buying from the U.S. Government Connect Durable medical equipment (DME) In section II.A.9 of this proposed rule, we are proposing a limited expansion of passive enrollment authority. More specifically, the new provisions at § 422.60(g) would allow CMS, in consultation with a state Medicaid agency, to implement passive enrollment procedures in situations where criteria identified in the regulation text are met. We propose the criteria based on our policy determination that passive enrollment is appropriate in those cases to promote integrated care and continuity of care for full-benefit dual eligible beneficiaries who are currently enrolled in an integrated D-SNP. All categories Proposed § 423.153(f) would implement provisions of section 704 of CARA, which allows Part D plan sponsors to establish a drug management program that includes “lock-in” as a tool to manage an at-risk beneficiary's access to coverage of frequently abused drugs.

Providers & Facilities Understanding an Explanation of Benefits Regulated Loan Company Late Enrollment Penalty for Medicare Part D This provision proposes an update to the electronic standards to be used by Medicare Part D prescription drug plans. This includes the proposed adoption of the NDPDP SCRIPT Standard Version 2017071, and retirement of the current NCPDP SCRIPT Version 10.6, as the official electronic prescribing standard for transmitting prescriptions and prescription-related information using electronic media for covered Part D drugs for Part D eligible individuals. These changes would become effective January 1, 2019. The NCPDP SCRIPT standards are used to exchange information between prescribers, dispensers, intermediaries and Medicare prescription drug plans. The actuarial value of the typical large employer preferred provider organization (PPO) is 85 percent and the actuarial value of the FEHBP Standard Option is 80 percent (Table B2). See Frank McArdle and others, “How Does the Benefit Value of Medicare Compare to the Benefit Value of Typical Large Employer Plans? A 2012 Update” (Menlo Park, CA: Kaiser Family Foundation, 2012), available at https://kaiserfamilyfoundation.files.wordpress.com/2013/01/7768-02.pdf; Large employers contribute an average of 81 percent of the premium for single coverage and 72 percent of the premium for family coverage (Figure 6.24). Premium contributions for part-time employees would be in proportion to hours worked per week divided by 40 hours.

Fill in the gaps. Also consider Medicare supplement coverage, also known as medigap. These plans cover part or all of the costs you would otherwise pay under parts A and B, including deductibles and co-pays. The ten plans are labeled by letter; benefits for each are standardized, but insurers set their own premiums. The six-month initial enrollment period starts on the first day of the month in which you are 65 or older and are enrolled in Medicare Part B. During that window, you can't be turned away by insurers because of a preexisting condition. Miss the deadline and you could end up paying more or be denied coverage altogether. The Obamacare ban on denying coverage based on preexisting conditions does not apply to Medicare. A Medicare Cost Plan is a type of Medicare health plan that’s available through private, Medicare-approved health insurance companies. In 2015, the rules were changed about these plans. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) won’t allow Medicare Cost Plans (starting January 1, 2019) in counties where: In new paragraph (c)(4)(iii), eligible beneficiaries who have been assigned to a plan by CMS or a State would be able to use the SEP before that election becomes effective (that is, opt out and enroll in a different plan) or within 2 months of their enrollment in that plan. Many policy experts and even some officials in the Obama administration agree that ACOs should have more exposure to losses. But some fear that these changes could harm the effort of shifting health care from fee-for-service, in which providers are paid for each visit or procedure they do, to a more value-based system, where they are paid based on quality and health outcomes. a.

The current reporting requirements for HEDIS and HOS already combine data from the surviving and consumed contract(s) following the consolidation, so we are not proposing any modification or averaging of these measure scores. For example, for HEDIS if an organization consolidates one or more contracts during the change over from measurement to reporting year, then only the surviving contract is required to report audited summary contract-level data but it must include data on all members from all contracts involved. For this reason, we are proposing regulation text that HEDIS and HOS measure data will be used as reported in the second year after consolidation. Because not all Part D plans' data systems may be able to account for group practice prescribers as we described above, or chain pharmacies through data analysis alone, or may not be able to fully account for them, we request information on sponsors' systems capabilities in this regard. Also, if a plan sponsor does not have the systems capability to automatically determine when a prescriber is part of a group or a pharmacy is part of a chain, the plan sponsor would have to make these determinations during case management, as they do with respect to group practices under the current policy. If through such case management, the Part D plan finds that the multiple prescribers who prescribed frequently abused drugs for the beneficiary are members of the same group practice, the Part D plan would treat those prescribers as one prescriber for purposes of identification of the beneficiary as a potential at-risk beneficiary. Similarly, if through such case management, the Part D plan finds that multiple locations of a pharmacy used by the beneficiary share real-time electronic data, the Part D plan would treat those locations as one pharmacy for purposes of identification of the beneficiary as a potential at-risk beneficiary. Both of these scenarios may result in a Part D sponsor no longer conducting case management for a beneficiary because the beneficiary does not meet the clinical guidelines. We also note that group practices and chain pharmacies are important to consider for purposes of the selection of a prescriber(s) and pharmacy(ies) in cases when a Part D plan limits a beneficiary's access to coverage of frequently abused drugs to selected pharmacy(ies) and/or prescriber(s), which we discuss in more detail later in this preamble.
