Q. What do Medicare Advantage plans cover? December 2013 Integrated care options are increasingly available for dually eligible beneficiaries, which include a variety of integrated D-SNPs. D-SNPs can provide greater integrated care than enrollees would otherwise receive in other MA plans or Medicare Fee-For-Service (FFS), particularly when an individual is enrolled in both a D-SNP and Medicaid managed care organization offered by the same organization. D-SNPs that meet higher standards of integration, quality, and performance benchmarks—known as highly integrated D-SNPs—are able to offer additional supplemental benefits to support integrated care pursuant to § 422.102(e). D-SNPs that are fully integrated—known as Fully Integrated Dual-Eligible (FIDE) SNPs, as defined at § 422.2 provide for a much greater level of integration and coordination than non-integrated D-SNPs, providing all primary, acute, and long-term care services and supports under a single entity.
Managing Health Care Costs (2) Plan benefit packages. All plan benefit packages (PBPs) offered under an MA contract have the same overall and/or summary Star Ratings as the contract under which the PBP is offered by the MA organization. Data from all the PBPs offered under a contract are used to calculate the measure and domain ratings for the contract except for Special Needs Plan (SNP)-specific measures collected at the PBP level. A contract level score is calculated using an enrollment-weighted mean of the PBP scores and enrollment reported as part of the measure specification in each PBP.

CMS has the authority under section 1857(e)(1) of the Act, incorporated for Part D by section 1860D-12(b)(3)(D) of the Act, to establish additional contract terms that CMS finds “necessary and appropriate,” as well as authority under section 1860D-11(d)(2)(B) of the Act to propose regulations imposing “reasonable minimum standards” for Part D sponsors. Using this authority we previously issued regulations to ensure that multiple plan offerings by Part D sponsors represent meaningful differences to beneficiaries with respect to benefit packages and plan cost structures. At that time, separate meaningful difference rules were concurrently adopted for MA and stand-alone PDPs. This section addresses proposed changes to our regulations pertaining strictly to meaningful Start Printed Page 56418differences in PDP plan offerings. One of the underlying principles in the establishment of the Medicare Part D prescription drug benefit is that both market competition and the flexibility provided to Part D sponsors in the statute would result in the offering of a broad array of cost effective prescription drug coverage options for Medicare beneficiaries. We continue to support the concept of offering a variety of prescription drug coverage choices for Medicare beneficiaries consistent with our commitment to afford beneficiaries access to the prescription drugs they need.
There are disruptions in Medicare Cost Plans in 12 states and the District of Columbia this year. Cost Plans won’t be renewed by CMS in counties that have at least two competing Medicare Advantage plans that meet certain enrollment requirements. As a result, up to 535,000 current enrollees nationally could be impacted for the upcoming 2019 AEP. This presents an excellent opportunity to not only help beneficiaries understand their new plan options, but to expand your footprint in these markets. Below are the regions with current Cost Plan enrollees.

In the news: This proposed approach to developing and updating the clinical guidelines would also be flexible enough to allow for updates to the guidelines outside of the regulatory process to address trends in Medicare with respect to the misuse and/or diversion of frequently abused drugs. We have determined this approach is appropriate to enable CMS to assist Part D drug management programs in being responsive to public health issues over time. This approach would also be consistent with how the OMS criteria have been established over time through the annual Medicare Parts C&D Call Letter process, which we plan to continue except for 2019.

Healthcare & Insurance Some of the drug management program provisions in CARA are only relevant to “lock-in”. We propose several regulatory provisions to implement these provisions, as follows:
Congress created the Medicare program as part of the Social Security Act in 1965 as a way of extending insurance coverage to individuals over the age of 65 who frequently lacked appropriate coverage prior to that time. Subsequent legislation has expanded Medicare’s eligibility pool to include individuals under 65 who receive Social Security Disability Insurance checks and those with end stage renal disease. Those who receive SSDI generally need to wait 24 months after they receive their first check before becoming eligible for Medicare, though the program waives this requirement for those with amyotrophic lateral Sclerosis.

29 30 31 1 2 3 4 But the tricky thing about many short-term plans, relative to other offerings, is they may not even be that useful for young-and-invincible types. While it’s difficult to assess their average value, since they are unregulated and diverse, the cheapest short-term plans appear to do little but avert only the most extreme—and unlikely—costs.
