Sign In / Sign Up Under the approach we are considering, if a Part D sponsor discovers errors after the certification has been made (that is, after the attestation has been signed), the Part D sponsor would submit corrected PDE data, and, under most circumstances, CMS would reconcile the error through the reopening process described at § 423.346. All reopenings are at the discretion of CMS. CMS performs a global reopening approximately 4 years after the initial reconciliation for that contract year. A Part D sponsor's reopening request resulting from errors in PDE data discovered after the global reopening for the contract year in which the error occurred would be evaluated by CMS on a case by case basis. Any errors in the calculation of the average rebate amount that result in overpayments would be required to be reported and returned consistent with § 423.360 and the applicable subregulatory guidance on overpayments.

First, in paragraphs (c)(1) of each section, we propose the overall formula for calculating the summary ratings for Part C and Part D. Under current policy, the summary rating for an MA-only contract is calculated using a weighted mean of the Part C measure-level Star Ratings with up to two adjustments: The reward factor (if applicable) and the categorical adjustment index (CAI); similarly, the current summary rating for a PDP contract is calculated using a weighted mean of the Part D measure-level Star Ratings with up to two adjustments: The reward factor (if applicable) and the CAI. We propose in §§ 422.166(c)(1) and 423.186(c)(1) that the Part C and Part D summary ratings would be calculated as the weighted mean of the measure-level Star Ratings with an adjustment to reward consistently high performance (reward factor) and the application of the CAI, pursuant to paragraph (f) (where we propose the specifics for these adjustments) for Parts C and D, respectively.

We propose to delete §§ 422.2272(e) and 423.2272(e), the provisions that limit what MA organizations and Part D sponsors can do when they have discovered that a previously licensed agent/broker has become unlicensed. Nonetheless, CMS may pursue compliance actions upon discovery of MA organizations and Part D sponsors who allow unlicensed agents/brokers to continue selling their products in violation of §§ 422.2272(c) and 423.2272(c).

New To MyMedicare? HHS.gov/Open - Opens in a new window "Medicare pays for things differently based on the site of care, paying more or less for the same service, but different locations," Verma said in a speech last month. "Now sometimes it makes sense, as some facilities provide a higher level of service. But other times, it creates misaligned incentives -- decisions about whether a patient receives a service in a hospital or in a doctor's office is influenced by how Medicare pays."
We emphasize that in situations where the prescriber was enrolled and then revoked, CMS' determination would not negate the revocation itself. The prescriber would remain revoked from Medicare.

As noted previously, we are proposing to codify a regulatory framework under which Part D plan sponsors may adopt drug management programs to address overutilization of frequently abused drugs. Therefore, we propose to amend § 423.153(a) by adding this sentence at the end: “A Part D plan sponsor may establish a drug management program for at-risk beneficiaries enrolled in their prescription drug benefit plans to address overutilization of frequently abused drugs, as described in paragraph (f) of this section,” in accordance with our authority under revised section 1860D-4(c)(5)(A) of the Act.

Look up companies and agents Upon finalizing this rule, we would issue sub-regulatory guidance to identify permissible manners of disclosure; we expect that guidance would be similar to the current guidance for the provider directory, pharmacy directory, and formulary regarding dissemination of the EOC. Importantly, this provision does not eliminate the requirement for plans to provide accessible formats of required documents. As recipients of federal funding, plans are obligated to provide materials in accessible formats upon request, at no cost to the individual, to individuals with disabilities, under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and to take reasonable steps to provide meaningful access, including translation services, to individuals who have limited English proficiency under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
In a 2014 proposed rule (79 FR 1918), we proposed to simplify agent/broker compensation rules to help ensure that plan payments were correct and establish a level playing field that further limited the incentive for agents/brokers to move enrollees for financial gain rather than for the beneficiary's best interest. In the final rule published on May 23, 2014, we codified technical changes to the language established by the IFR relating to agent/broker compensation, choosing instead to link payment rates for renewal enrollments to current FMV rates rather than the rate paid for the original (that is, initial) enrollment. These changes also effectively removed the 6-year cycle from the payment structure. We codified these changes in §§ 422.2274(a), (b), and (h) for MA organizations and §§ 423.2274(a), (b), and (h) for Part D sponsors.

As insurers set rates for 2019, they are taking into account repeal of the individual mandate penalty (which goes into effect this coming year) and the likely proliferation of short-term, limited duration health plans (STDL). In the absence of a penalty for not purchasing insurance, some people currently purchasing individual market insurance are expected to either stop purchasing any insurance or switch to non-ACA compliant STDL plans. It is likely that those who leave the regulated individual insurance market will be relatively healthy on average, which will increase premiums in 2019 more than would otherwise be the case.
Using the model developed from this process, the estimated modified LIS/DE percentage for contracts operating solely in Puerto Rico would be calculated. The maximum value for the modified LIS/DE indicator value per contract would be capped at 100 percent. All estimated modified LIS/DE values for Puerto Rico would be rounded to 6 decimal places when expressed as a percentage.
Generally you can enroll in Medicare only during the Medicare general enrollment period (from January 1 to March 31 each year). Your coverage won’t start until July. This may cause a gap in your coverage.
