8:38 AM ET Wed, 1 Aug 2018 Investigations (ii) Not an exempted beneficiary; and However, CMS continues to receive hundreds of inquiries and concerns from sponsors and FDRs regarding their difficulties with adopting CMS' compliance training to satisfy the compliance program training requirement. While CMS' previous market research indicated that this provision would mitigate the problems raised by FDRs who held contracts with multiple sponsors and who completed repetitive trainings for each sponsor with which they contract, in practice, we learned that the problems persisted. Many sponsors are unwilling to accept completion of the CMS training as fulfillment of the training requirement and identify which critical positions within the FDR are subject to the training requirement. As a result, FDRs are still being subjected to multiple sponsors' specific training programs. FDRs have the additional burden of taking CMS training and reporting completion back to the sponsor or sponsors with which they contract. Furthermore, the industry has indicated that the requirement has increased the burden for various Part C and Part D program stakeholders, including hospitals, suppliers, health care providers, pharmacists and physicians, all of which may be considered FDRs. Since the implementation of the mandatory CMS-developed training has not achieved the intended efficiencies in the administration of the Part C and Part D programs, we propose to delete the provisions from the Part C and Part D regulations that require use of the CMS-developed training. Additionally we propose to restructure § 422.503(b)(4)(vi)(C)(1) (with the proposed revisions) into two paragraphs (that is, paragraph (C)(1) and (C)(2)) to separate the scope of the compliance training from the frequency with which the training must occur, as these are two distinct requirements. With this proposed revision, the organization of § 422.503(b)(4)(vi)(C) will mirror that of § 423.504(b)(4)(vi)(C). Further, we propose to revise the text in § 423.504(b)(4)(vi)(C)(2) to track the phrasing in § 422.503(b)(4)(vi)(C)(2), as reorganized. The technical changes in the text eliminate any potential ambiguity created by different phrasing in what we intend to be identical requirements as to the timing requirements for the training. We believe these technical changes make the requirements easier to understand.

PART 417—HEALTH MAINTENANCE ORGANIZATIONS, COMPETITIVE MEDICAL PLANS, AND HEALTH CARE PREPAYMENT PLANS Specific coverage changes must be approved by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), but the agency announced it will encourage them when it begins formally reviewing 2019 private plan coverage proposals in June. That doesn’t leave a lot of time to formulate 2019 proposals, so even larger changes may occur for the 2020 coverage year.
Medicare PDP’s Facebook Email us In creating the Part D program, the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act of 2003 (MMA) (Pub. L. 108-173) added the convenient access provision of section 1860D-4(b)(1)(C) of the Act and the level playing field provision of section 1860D-4(b)(1)(D) of the Act. The convenient access provisions, as codified at § 423.120(a)(1)-(7), require Part D plan sponsors to secure the participation in their networks a sufficient number of pharmacies that dispense (other than by mail order) drugs directly to patients to ensure convenient access (consistent with rules established by the Secretary) and includes special provisions for standards with respect to Long Term Care (LTC) and I/T/U pharmacies (as defined at § 423.100). The level playing field provision, as codified at § 423.120(a)(10), requires Part D plan sponsors to permit enrollees to receive the same benefits, including extended days' supplies, through a pharmacy (other than a mail-order pharmacy) (that is, a retail pharmacy), although the Part D plan sponsor may require the enrollee to pay a higher level of cost-sharing to do so.

(1) CMS will continue to review measures that are in alignment with the private sector, such as measures developed by NCQA and the Pharmacy Quality Alliance (PQA), or endorsed by the National Quality Forum for adoption and use in the Part C and Part D Quality Ratings System. CMS may develop its own measures as well when appropriate to measure and reflect performance specific to the Medicare program.
