Kiplinger's Investing For Income 2016 SHOP Health Plans and Networks Because we propose to integrate the CARA Part D drug management program provisions with the current policy and codify them both, we describe the current policy in section II.A.1.c.(1) of this proposed rule, noting where our proposal incorporates changes to the current policy in order to comply with CARA and achieve operational consistency. Where we do not note a change, our intent is to codify the current policy, and we seek specific comment as to whether we have overlooked any feature of the current policy that should be codified. CMS communications regarding the current policy can be found at the CMS Web site, “Improving Drug Utilization Review Controls in Part D” at https://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Prescription-Drug-Coverage/PrescriptionDrugCovContra/RxUtilization.html.

MA organizations and Part D plan sponsors may elect to end the automatic renewal provision in Part C or Part D contracts and discontinue those contracts with CMS without cause, simply by providing notice in the manner and within the timeframes stated at § 422.506(a) and § 423.507(a). Thus, organizations are free to make a business decision to end their Medicare contract at the end of a given year and need not provide CMS with a rationale for their decision. By contrast, CMS may not end an MA organization or Part D plan sponsor's contract through nonrenewal without establishing that the contracting organization's performance has met the criteria for at least one of the stated bases for a CMS initiated contract nonrenewal in paragraphs (b) of those sections.

15. Any Willing Pharmacy Standard Terms and Conditions and Better Define Pharmacy Types We are proposing to allow the electronic delivery of certain information normally provided in hard copy documents such as the Evidence of Coverage (EOC). Additionally, we are proposing to change the timeframe for delivery of the EOC in particular to the first day of the Annual Election Period (AEP) rather than fifteen days prior to that date. Allowing plans to provide the EOC electronically would alleviate plan burden related to printing and mailing, and simultaneously would reduce the number of paper documents that beneficiaries receive from plans. This would allow beneficiaries to focus on materials, like the Annual Notice of Change (ANOC), that drive decision making. Changing the date by which plans must provide the EOC to members would allow plans more time to finalize the formatting and ensure the accuracy of the information, as well as further distance it from the ANOC, which must still be delivered 15 days prior to the AEP. We see this proposed change as an overall reduction of impact that our regulations have on plans and beneficiaries. In aggregate, we estimate a savings (to plans for not producing Start Printed Page 56340and mailing hard-copy EOCs) of approximately $51 million.
