Get a Plan Recommendation Schedule a Phone Call Compare Plans Now Annually, we propose to update the performance and variance thresholds for the reward factor based upon the data for the Star Ratings year, consistent with current policy. A multistep process would be used to determine the values that correspond to the thresholds for the reward factors for the summary and/or overall Star Ratings for a contract. The determination of the reward factors would rely on the contract's ranking of its weighted variance and weighted mean of the measure-level stars to the summary or overall rating relative to the distribution of all contracts' weighted variance and weighted mean to the summary and/or overall rating. A contract's weighted variance would be calculated using the quotient of the following two values: (1) The product of the number of applicable measures based on rating-type and the sum of the products of the weight of each applicable measure and its squared deviation [42] and (2) the product of one less than the number of applicable measures and the sum of the weights of the applicable measures. A contract's weighted mean performance would be Start Printed Page 56403found by calculating the quotient of the following two values: (1) The sum of the products of the weight of a measure and its associated measure-level Star Ratings of the applicable measures for the rating-type and (2) the sum of the weights of the applicable measures for the rating type. The thresholds for the categorization of the weighted variance and weighted mean for contracts would be based upon the distribution of the calculated values of all rated contracts of the same type. Because highly-rated contracts may have the improvement measure(s) excluded in the determination of their final highest rating, each contract's weighted variance and weighted mean is calculated both with and without the improvement measures.

(1) CMS will continue to review measures that are nationally endorsed and in alignment with the private sector, such as measures developed by National Committee for Quality Assurance and the Pharmacy Quality Alliance or endorsed by the National Quality Forum for adoption and use in the Part D Quality Ratings System. CMS may develop its own measures as well when appropriate to measure and reflect performance specific to the Medicare program. These provisions, which focus on NPI submission and validation, are no longer effective because the January 1, 2016 end-date for their applicability has passed. Since that time, however, and as explained in detail in section (b)(1)(b) below, congressional legislation requires us to revisit some of the provisions in former paragraph (c)(5) and, as warranted, to re-propose them in what would constitute a new paragraph (c)(5). We believe that these new provisions would not only effectively implement the legislation in question but also enhance Part D program integrity by streamlining and strengthening procedures for ensuring the identity of prescribers of Part D drugs. This would be particularly important in light of our preclusion list proposals. 952-992-1814 Intergovernmental relations 17 14 ++ Volume of medical records in a given request.

However, given the importance of a beneficiary having advance notice of a pending limit on his or her access to coverage for frequently abused drugs and sufficient time to respond and/or prepare, we believe exceptions to the timing of the notices should be very narrow. Therefore, we have only included a proposal for an exception to shorten the 30 day timeframe between the initial and second notice that is based on a beneficiary's status as an at-risk beneficiary in an immediately preceding plan. We note that is a status the drug management provisions of CARA explicitly requires to be shared with the next plan sponsor, if a beneficiary changes plans, which means there would be a concrete data point for this proposed exception to the timing of the notices. We discuss such sharing of information later in the preamble.
