Section 422.260 is amended by revising paragraph (a) and revising the definition of “Quality bonus payment (QBP) determination methodology” in paragraph (b) to read as follows: Sections of this page 10455 Mill Run Circle How to enroll in Medicare if you are turning 65 Part D plan sponsors are required to upload these new notice templates into their internal claims systems. We estimate that 219 Part D plan sponsors (31 PDP parent organizations and 188 MA-PD parent organizations) will be subject to this requirement. We estimate that it will take on average 5 hours at $81.90/hour for a computer programmer to upload the notices into their claims systems. This would result in a total burden of 1,095 hours (5 hours × 219 sponsors) at a cost of $89,680.50 (1,095 hour × $81.90/hr). In aggregate, the burden to prepare and upload these additional notices was estimated as 1,402 hours (307 hours + 1,095 hours) at a cost of $101,721 ($12,040 + $89,681) in 2019 in section III. of this proposed rule.

This rating-specific factor is added to both the summary and overall ratings of contracts that qualify for the reward factor based on both high and stable relative performance for the rating level. Second, on October 26, 2017, the President directed that executive agencies use all appropriate emergency authorities and other relevant authorities to address drug addiction and opioid abuse, and the Acting Secretary of Health and Human Services declared a nationwide Public Health Emergency to address the opioid crisis.[10] In addition, the CDC has declared opioid overuse a national epidemic, both of which are relevant factors.[11] More than 33,000 people died from opioid overuse in 2015, which is the highest number per year on record. From 2000 to 2015, more than half a million people died from drug overdoses, and 91 Americans die every day from an opioid overdose. Nearly half of all opioid overdose deaths involve a prescription opioid. Given that opioids, including prescription opioids, are the main driver of drug overdose deaths in the U.S., it is reasonable for the Secretary to conclude that opioids are frequently abused and misused.

Domain ratings summarize a plan's performance on a specific dimension of care. Currently the domains are used purely for purposes of displaying data on Medicare Plan Finder to organize the measures and help consumers interpret the data.

As indicated, this proposed rule estimates that MA organizations and Part D sponsors will spend on average 36 hours per MA or Part D contract on administrative work, compared to 47 hours per contract under the current rule. We estimate the average cost per hour of MLR reporting using wage data for computer and information systems managers, as we believe that the tasks associated with MLR reporting generally fall within the fields of data processing, computer programming, information systems, and systems analysis. Based on computer and information systems managers wage Start Printed Page 56473data from BLS, we estimate that MA organizations and Part D sponsors would incur annual MLR reporting costs of approximately $5,045 per contract on average under our proposal, as opposed to $6,587 per contract under the current regulations. Consequently, the proposed changes would, on average, reduce the annual administrative costs by $1,542 per contract. Across all MA and Part D contracts, we estimate that the proposed changes would reduce the annual administrative burden related to MLR reporting by 6,457 hours, resulting in a savings of $904,884. Who's eligible for Medicare 215-925-RINK|riverrink@drwc.org Watchlist (a) A PACE organization may not pay, directly or indirectly, on any basis, for items or services (other than emergency or urgently needed services as defined in § 460.100) furnished to a Medicare enrollee by any individual or entity that is excluded by the OIG or is included on the preclusion list, defined in § 422.2 of this chapter. Join Us (xii) Summary Accreditation Considering the program integrity risk that the two previously mentioned sets of prescribers present, we must be able to accordingly protect Medicare beneficiaries and the Trust Funds. We thus propose to revise § 423.120(c)(6), as further specified in this proposed rule, to require that a Part D plan sponsor must reject, or must require its PBM to reject, a pharmacy claim (or deny a beneficiary request for reimbursement) for a Part D drug prescribed by an individual on the preclusion list. We believe we have the legal authority for such a provision because sections 1102 and 1871 of the Act provide general authority for the Secretary to prescribe regulations for the efficient administration of the Medicare program; also, section 1860D-12(b)(3)(D) of the Act authorizes the Secretary to add additional Part D contract terms as necessary and appropriate, so long as they are not inconsistent with the Part D statute. We note also that our proposal is of particular importance when considering the current nationwide opioid crisis. We believe that the inclusion of problematic prescribers on the preclusion list could reduce the amount of opioids that are improperly or unnecessarily prescribed by persons who pose a heightened risk to the Part D program and Medicare beneficiaries.

Since this rule does not impose any substantial costs on state or local governments, the requirements of Executive Order 13132 are not applicable. A new white paper provides evidence that "the rising values of fringe benefits, such as health insurance, may have offset potential wage gains for middle-income workers," which have plateaued at about 3 percent despite falling unemployment. The authors, Jeff Larrimore of the Federal Reserve and David Splinter of the Joint Committee on Taxation, contend that when factoring in the cost of health coverage, "total compensation may be higher than previously believed, also implying that employer-sponsored health insurance benefits may represent a larger share of employee compensation."
