Plan-Level Average: We are considering requiring that average rebate amounts be calculated separately for each plan (that is, calculated at the plan-benefit-package level). In other words, the same average rebate amount would not apply to the point-of-sale price for a covered drug across all plans under one contract, nor across all contracts under one sponsor. We believe this approach would result in the calculation of more accurate average rebates because the PDE and rebate data that are submitted by sponsors demonstrate that gross drug costs and rebate levels are not the same across all plans under one contract, nor across all contracts under one sponsor. This approach would also largely be consistent with how sponsors develop cost estimates for their Part D bids because benefit designs, including formulary structure, and assumptions about enrollee characteristics and utilization vary by plan, even for multiple plans under one contract. Similarly, final payments are calculated by CMS at the plan level, based on the data submitted by the sponsor. We solicit comment on whether the most appropriate approach for calculating the average rebate amount for point-of-sale application would be to do so at the plan level, using plan-specific information, given that moving a portion of manufacturer rebates to the point of sale would impact plan liability and payments, or if another approach would be more appropriate.

Are there special considerations CMS should keep in mind if we finalize this policy?
Ambulatory Surgical Center (ASC) Payment We propose to codify regulation text, at §§ 422.160 and 423.180, that identifies the statutory authority, purpose, and applicability of the Star Ratings System regulations we are proposing to add to part 422 subpart D and part 423 subpart D. Under our proposal, the existing purposes of the quality rating system—to provide comparative information to Medicare beneficiaries pursuant to sections 1851(d) and 1860D-1(c) of the Act, to identify and apply the payment consequences for MA plans under sections 1853(o) and 1854(b)(1)(C) of the Act, and to evaluate and oversee overall and specific performance by plans—would continue. To reflect how the Part D ratings are used for MA-PD plan QBP status and rebate retention allowances, we also propose specific text, to be codified at § 423.180(b)(2), noting that the Part D Star Rating will be used for those purposes.

Medicare is a federal health insurance program for retirees age 65 or older and people with disabilities. Medicare Part A covers inpatient hospital care, some skilled nursing facility care and hospice care. Medicare Part B covers physician care, diagnostic x-rays and lab tests, and durable medical equipment. Medicare Part D is a federal prescription drug program.
Changes in Plan Selection This proposal will allow CMS to use the most relevant and appropriate information in determining cost sharing standards and thresholds. For example, analyses of MA utilization encounter data can be used with Medicare FFS data to establish the appropriate utilization scenarios to determine MA plan cost sharing standards and thresholds. CMS seeks comments and suggestions on this proposal, particularly whether additional regulation text is needed to achieve CMS's goal of setting and announcing each year presumptively discriminatory levels of cost sharing.
