Value-based purchasing Get MyMedicare help We note that, currently, OMS standardized responses generally fall into four categories: First, in approximately 18 percent of cases, the enrollee's opioid use is medically necessary. Second, approximately 38 percent of cases are resolved without a beneficiary-specific POS opioid claim edit, for example, when the sponsor takes a “wait and see” approach to observe if the prescribers adjust their management of, and the opioid prescriptions they are writing for, their patient due to the written information they received from the sponsor about their patient. Third, a small subset of cases—on average 1.3 percent—need a beneficiary-specific opioid POS claim edit to resolve the beneficiary's opioid overutilization issue. From 2013 through of July 4, 2017, CMS received 4,617 contract-beneficiary-level opioid POS claim edit notifications through MARx for 3,961 unique beneficiaries. Fourth, as previously mentioned, approximately 39 percent of cases do not meet the sponsor's internal criteria for review. We expect adjustment to these percentages under our proposal, particularly since we anticipate that plans will no longer be able to respond that a case does not meet its internal criteria for review. In addition, the revised 2018 OMS criteria which are the basis of the proposed 2019 clinical guidelines should reduce “false positives” which may have been reported through OMS but not identified through sponsors' internal criteria due to a shorter look back period and ability to group prescribers within the same practice. 102. The subpart V heading is amended to read as set forth above. 48 Hours Warranties & service contracts Some commenters recommended against exempting beneficiaries with cancer diagnoses, stating that there is no standard clinical reason why a beneficiary with cancer should be receiving opioids from multiple prescribers and/or multiple pharmacies, and that such situations warrant further review. While we understand the concern of these commenters, we maintain that beneficiaries who have a cancer diagnosis should be exempted for the reasons stated just above. Moreover, our experience with this exemption under the current policy suggests that the exemption is workable and appropriate. We understand beneficiaries with cancer diagnoses are identifiable by Part D plan sponsors either through recorded diagnoses, their drug regimens or case management, and no major concerns have been expressed about this exemption under our current policy, including from standalone Part D plan sponsors who may not have access to their enrollees' medical records. We also seek stakeholder comment on what, if any, special considerations should be taken into account in the design of a point-of-sale rebate policy, for Part D employer group waiver plans (EGWPs). We are also interested in feedback on what particular effects requiring Part D sponsors to apply some manufacturer rebates at the point of sale would have on the EGWP market, as well as on how such a requirement might impact the retiree drug subsidy program.

Legislative relations 10,000 Takes Requiring that all pharmacy price concessions that sponsors and PBMs receive be used to lower the price at the point of sale, as we described earlier, would affect beneficiary, government, and manufacturer costs largely in the same manner as discussed previously in regards to moving manufacturer rebates to the point of sale. The difference is in the magnitude of the impacts given that sponsors and PBMs receive significantly higher sums of manufacturer rebates than of pharmacy price concessions.
