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. The Part D statute (at section 1860D-1(c)) imposes a parallel information dissemination requirement with respect to Part D plans, and refers specifically to comparative information on consumer satisfaction survey results as well as quality and plan performance indicators. Part D plans are also required by regulation (§ 423.156) to make Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) survey data available to CMS and are required to submit pricing and prescription drug event data under statutes and regulations specific to those data. Regulations require plans to report on quality improvement and quality assurance and to provide data which CMS can use to help beneficiaries compare plans (§§ 422.152 and 423.153). In addition we may require plans to report statistics and other information in specific categories (§§ 422.516 and 423.514). ++ Has revoked the individual's or entity's enrollment and the individual or entity is under a reenrollment bar; or PA Prior Authorization Section 1860D-4(c)(5)(G) of the Act defines “frequently abused drug” as a drug that is a controlled substance that the Secretary determines to be frequently abused or diverted. Consistent with the statutory definition, we propose to define “Frequently abused drug ” at § 423.100 to mean a controlled substance under the federal Controlled Substances Act that the Secretary determines is frequently abused or diverted, taking into account the following factors: (1) The drug's schedule designation by the Drug Enforcement Administration; (2) Government or professional guidelines that address that a drug is frequently abused or misused; and (3) An analysis of Medicare or other drug utilization or scientific data. This definition is intended to provide enough specificity for stakeholders to know how the Secretary will determine a frequently abused drug, while preserving flexibility to update which drugs CMS considers to be frequently abused drugs based on relevant factors, such as actions by the Drug Enforcement Administration and/or trends observed in Medicare or scientific data.

In newly redesignated paragraph (b)(2)(iii), by removing the phrase “from an MA plan,” and adding the phrase “from a Part D sponsor,” in its place. Arts Patient-centered Medical Homes Prior to implementing the meaningful difference evaluation for CY 2011 bid submissions, the beneficiary weighted average number of plans per county was about 30 in 2010 compared to 18 in 2017 (these numbers do not include SNPs or employer group plans which have additional criteria for enrollment). Private-fee-for-service (PFFS) plans represented 13 of the 30 plans in 2010 and less than 1 of the 18 plans in 2017. The Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act of 2008 required PFFS plans to establish contracted provider networks by 2011 and many PFFS plans non-renewed. The weighted average number of plans has remained relatively stable since the decline of PFFS options. MA enrollment continued to grow from more than 11 million in July 2010 to 18.7 million in July 2017, fueled by the continued overall acceptance of managed care, the baby boom generation aging into Medicare beginning in 2011, and decreases in average plan premium during the time period.
