§ 423.505 The physician or physician group would look up the combined deductible in the second column of Table 13 and select the corresponding NBP in the Start Printed Page 56464third column. If necessary, linear interpolation would be used. Finally, the physician or physician group would select any cell in the table in Table 14 whose numerical entry is greater than or equal to that NBP. The row and column labels for this cell are the corresponding professional and institutional deductibles for that selection. Any such selection would meet the requirement of the basic rule stated in paragraph (f)(2)(i). We are proposing to codify the use of this table of deductibles for separate stop-loss insurance professional services and institutional services based on the NBP in paragraph (f)(2)(v).

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.

Preclusion List—Part C/Medicare Advantage Cost Plan and PACE Provisions CoverKids My Blueline (IVR) Costs for Medicare health plans LGBT There are currently 468 MA organizations in 2017. Not all MA organizations are required to be open for enrollment during the OEP. However, for those that are, we estimate that this enrollment period would result in approximately 1,192 enrollments per organization (558,000 individuals/468 organizations) during the OEP each year.

Table 31—Accounting Statement: Classifications of Estimated Savings, Costs, and Transfers From Calendar Years 2019 to 2023 Performance Management As previously noted, section 1860D-4(c)(5)(B)(i)(I) of the Act requires Part D sponsors to provide a second written notice to at-risk beneficiaries when they limit their access to coverage for frequently abused drugs. Also, as with the initial notice, our proposed implementation of this statutory requirement for the second notice would permit the second notice to be used when the sponsor implements a beneficiary-specific POS claim edit for frequently abused drugs. Contracting organizations often respond to changes in the Medicare markets or changes in their own business objectives by making decisions to end or modify their participation in the Part C and D programs. Thus, these organizations exercise their nonrenewal rights under § 422.506(a) and § 423.507(a) much more frequently than CMS conducts contract non renewals under § 422.506(b) and § 423.507(b). As a result, within CMS and among industry stakeholders, the term “nonrenewal” has effectively come to refer almost exclusively to MA organization and Part D plan sponsor initiated contract non renewals. Are you approaching age 65 and currently covered by a marketplace health care plan under the Affordable Care Act (aka “... We propose to redesignate the existing definition as paragraph (i). Weighting: We are considering requiring that when calculating the applicable average rebate amount for a particular drug category, the manufacturer rebate amount for each individual drug in that category be weighted by the total gross drug costs incurred for that drug, under the plan, over the most recent month, quarter, year, or another time period to be specified in future rulemaking for which cost data is available. We believe a weighted average is more accurate than a simple average because sponsors do not receive the same level of rebates for all drugs in a particular drug category or class, and thus, contrary to the assumption underlying a simple average, not all drugs contribute equally to the final average rebate percentage for a drug category or class received by the sponsor under a plan at the end of a payment year. A gross drug cost-weighted average ensures that drugs with higher utilization, higher costs, or both will be more important to the final average rebate rate realized for the drug category or class than lower utilization, lower cost, or lower cost-lower utilization drugs in the category or class.Start Printed Page 56423 We’re by your side wherever you go.

Medicare can be a complex subject… If you're just becoming eligible for Medicare, the open enrollment period at the end of the year (Oct. 15 to Dec. 7) is not for you.
