In addition, we propose to add § 423.160(b)(1)(v) to provide that NCPDP Version 2017071 must be used to conduct the covered transactions on or after January 1, 2019. Furthermore, we are proposing to amend § 423.160(b)(2) by adding § 423.160(b)(2)(iv) to name NCPDP SCRIPT Version 2017071 for the applicable transactions. Finally, we propose to incorporate NCPDP SCRIPT version 2017071 by reference in our regulations. We seek comment regarding our proposed retirement of NCPDP SCRIPT version 10.6 on December 31, 2018 and adoption of NCPDP SCRIPT Version 2017071 on January 1, 2019 as the official Part D e-prescribing standard for the e-prescribing functions outlined in our proposed § 423.160(b)(1)(v) and (b)(2)(v), and for medication history as outlined in our proposed § 423.160(b)(4), effective January 1, 2019. We are also soliciting comments regarding the impact of these proposed effective dates on industry and other interested stakeholders.
Navigator Payment News Releases We also propose that both basic and supplemental benefits should be subject to the payment prohibition that is tied to the preclusion list. We believe that restricting the payment prohibition to only one of these two categories would undercut the effectiveness of our preclusion list proposal.
The primary purpose of this proposed rule is to make revisions to the Medicare Advantage (MA) program (Part C) and Prescription Drug Benefit Program (Part D) regulations based on our continued experience in the administration of the Part C and Part D programs and to implement certain provisions of the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act and the 21st Century Cures Act. The proposed changes are necessary to—(1) Support Innovative Approaches to Improving Quality, Accessibility, and Affordability; (2) Improve the CMS Customer Experience; and (3) Implement Other Changes. In addition, this rule proposes technical changes related to treatment of Part A and Part B premium adjustments and updates the Script standard used for Part D electronic prescribing. While the Part D program has high satisfaction among users, we continually evaluate program policies and regulations to remain responsive to current trends and newer technologies. Specifically, this regulation meets the Administration's priorities to reduce burden and provide the regulatory framework to develop MA and Part D products that better meet the individual beneficiary's healthcare needs. Additionally, this regulation includes a number of provisions that will help address the opioid epidemic and mitigate the impact of increasing drug prices in the Part D program.

++ In new paragraph (e)(1), we propose to state that the prohibitions, procedures and requirements relating to payment to individuals and entities on the preclusion list (defined in § 422.2 of this chapter) apply to HMOs and CMPs that contract with CMS under section 1876 of the Act.
The month of your birthday, and PDP and MAPD Overview by State MA plans, by contrast, represent a managed-care approach that can be less costly, linked to patient outcomes, and provided as part of a personal care plan tailored to individual patients. Managing patient care is widely seen as a more practical path to controlling health costs while also improving patient well-being.

IMMIGRATION These changes and increased complexities, and more than a decade of program experience, lead us to believe that our current regulations are no longer sufficient to ensure that tiering exceptions are understood by beneficiaries and adjudicated by plan sponsors in the manner the statute contemplates. For this reason, we propose to amend §§ 423.560, 423.578(a) and 423.578(c) to revise and clarify requirements for how tiering exceptions are to be adjudicated and effectuated.
