How to Become Appointed timely access to covered services and drugs Amerigroup Washington Multimedia The physician or physician group would look up the combined deductible in the second column of Table 13 and select the corresponding NBP in the Start Printed Page 56464third column. If necessary, linear interpolation would be used. Finally, the physician or physician group would select any cell in the table in Table 14 whose numerical entry is greater than or equal to that NBP. The row and column labels for this cell are the corresponding professional and institutional deductibles for that selection. Any such selection would meet the requirement of the basic rule stated in paragraph (f)(2)(i). We are proposing to codify the use of this table of deductibles for separate stop-loss insurance professional services and institutional services based on the NBP in paragraph (f)(2)(v).

Advisory Task Force on Uniform Conveyancing Forms Programs to Save Energy & Money OACT anticipates some natural shift from reference biological products to follow-on biological products, but follow-on biological products' price differential and market share are lower Start Printed Page 56489than that observed for small molecule generic drugs. Currently, Zarxio® data provide the only meaningful comparison available to date, as very limited data exist on the other six approved (as of September 14, 2017) follow-on biological products. The market dynamic between Neupogen® and Zarxio® has behaved consistent with OACT's anticipation and OACT expects other follow-on biological products to follow the similar pattern. Based on 2017 year-to-date data on the per script price difference between Neupogen® and Zarxio®, OACT estimated follow-on biological products to be 16 percent less expensive than their reference biological product. OACT estimates this proposal will result in a minor shift of an additional 5 percent of prescriptions to follow-on biological products by LIS enrollees under this proposal. Consequently, savings are not estimated to be significant at this time. Prior authorization, claims, and billing § 417.472 Update my income or address (report a change) When is the next Medicare open enrollment period? MNsure is Working Under our proposal, default enrollment of individuals at the time of their conversion to Medicare would be more limited than the default enrollments Congress authorized the Secretary to permit in section 1851(c)(3)(A)(ii) of the Act. However, we are also proposing some flexibility for MA organizations that wish to offer seamless continuation of coverage to their non-Medicare members, commercial, Medicaid or otherwise, who are gaining Medicare eligibility. As discussed in more detail below, affirmative elections would be necessary for individuals not enrolled in a Medicaid managed care plan, consistent with § 422.50. However, because individuals enrolled in an organization's commercial plan, for example would already be known to the parent organization offering both the non-Medicare plan and the MA plan and the statute acknowledges that this existing relationship is somewhat relevant to Part C coverage, we propose to amend § 422.66(d)(5) and to establish, through subregulatory guidance, a new and simplified positive (that is, “opt in”) election process that would be available to all MA organizations for the MA enrollments of their commercial, Medicaid or other non-Medicare plan members. To reflect our change in policy with regard to a default enrollment process and this proposal to permit a simplified election process for individuals who are electing coverage in an MA plan offered by the same entity as the individual's non-Medicare coverage, we are also proposing to add text in § 422.66(d)(5) authorizing a simplified election for purposes of converting existing non-Medicare coverage, commercial, Medicaid or otherwise, to MA coverage offered by the same organization. This new mechanism would allow for a less burdensome process for MA organizations to offer enrollment in their MA plans to their non-Medicare health plan members who are newly eligible for Medicare. As the MA organization has a significant amount of the information from the member's non-Medicare enrollment, this new simplified election process aims to make enrollment easier for the newly-eligible beneficiary to complete and for the MA organization to process. It would align with the individual's Part A and Part B initial enrollment period (and initial coordinated election period for MA coverage), provided he or she enrolled in both Medicare Parts A and B when first eligible for Medicare. This new election process would provide a longer period of time for MA organizations to accept enrollment requests than the time period in which MA organizations would be required to effectuate default enrollments, as organizations would be able to accept enrollments throughout the individual's Initial Coverage Election Period (ICEP), which for an aged beneficiary is the 7-month period that begins 3 months before the month in which the individual turns 65 and ends 3 months after the month in which the individual turns 65. We would use existing authority to create this new enrollment Start Printed Page 56368mechanism which, if implemented, would be available to MA organizations in the 2019 contract year. We solicit comments on the proposed changes to the regulation text as well as the form and manner in which such enrollments may occur.
