Medicare vs. Medicaid Some people automatically get Part A and Part B. Find out if you’ll get Part A and B automatically. If you're automatically enrolled, you'll get your red, white, and blue Medicare card in the mail 3 months before your 65th birthday or your 25th month of disability. If you don't get Medicare automatically, you’ll need to apply for Medicare online.
The similarities between nonrenewal and termination are demonstrated by the extensive but not complete overlap in bases for CMS action under both processes. For example, both nonrenewal authorities incorporate by reference the bases for CMS initiated terminations stated in § 422.510 and § 423.509. The remaining CMS initiated nonrenewal bases (any of the bases that support the imposition of intermediate sanctions or civil money penalties (§§ 422.506(b)(iii) and § 423.507(b)(1)(ii)), low enrollment in an individual MA plan or PDP (§§ 422.506(b)(iv) and 423.507(b)(1)(iii)), or failure to fully implement or make significant progress on quality improvement projects (§ 422.506(b)(i))) were all promulgated in accordance with our statutory termination authority at sections 1857(c)(2) and 1860D-12(b)(3) of the Act and are all more specific examples of an organization's substantial failure to carry out the terms of its MA or Part D contract or its carrying out the contract in an inefficient or ineffective manner. Therefore, we propose striking these provisions from the nonrenewal portion of the regulation and adding them to the list of bases for CMS initiated contract terminations.
Medigap plans are similar to Medicare Cost Plans in several aspects, but there are some distinct differences. These plans are sold by private insurance companies and help fill in the holes that are left behind by Original Medicare (Parts A and B).

In summary, this proposed rule would implement the CARA Part D drug management program provisions by integrating them with the current Part D Opioid Drug Utilization Review (DUR) Policy and Overutilization Monitoring System (OMS) (“current policy”). As explained in more detail later in this section, this integration would mean that Part D sponsors implementing a drug management program could limit an at-risk beneficiary's access to coverage of opioids beginning 2019 through a point-of-sale (POS) claim edit and/or by requiring the beneficiary to obtain opioids from a selected pharmacy(ies) and/or prescriber(s) after case management and notice to the beneficiary. To do so, the beneficiary would have to meet clinical guidelines that factor in that the beneficiary is taking a high-risk dose of opioids over a sustained time period and that the beneficiary is obtaining them from multiple prescribers and multiple pharmacies. This proposed rule would also implement a limitation on the use of the special enrollment period (SEP) for low income subsidy (LIS)-eligible beneficiaries who are identified as potential at-risk beneficiaries.
This proposed rule would implement MedPAC's recommendation by permitting generic substitutions without advance approval as specified later in this section. We have also taken this opportunity to examine our regulations to determine how to otherwise facilitate the use of certain generics. Currently, Part D sponsors can add drugs to their formularies at any time; however, there is no guarantee that enrollees will switch from their brand name drugs to newly added generics. Therefore, Part D sponsors seeking to better manage the Part D benefit may choose to remove a brand name drug, or change its preferred or tiered cost-sharing, and substitute or add its therapeutic equivalent. But even this takes some time: Under current regulations, Part D sponsors must submit formulary change requests to CMS and provide specified notice before removing drugs or changing their cost-sharing (except for unsafe drugs or those withdrawn from the market). As noted earlier, the general notice requirements and burden are currently approved by OMB under control number 0938-0964 (CMS-10141). Also, as detailed previously, § 423.120(b)(5)(i) requires 60 days' notice to specified entities prior to the effective date of changes and 60 days' direct notice to affected enrollees or a 60 day refill. The ability of Part D sponsors to make generic substitutions as approved by CMS is further limited by the fact that as detailed previously, under § 423.120(b)(6), Part D sponsors generally cannot remove drugs or make cost-sharing changes from the start of the annual election period (AEP) until 2 months after the plan year begins.
Medicare Enrollment Shared Resources You don't need to sign up if you automatically get Part A and Part B. You'll get your red, white, and blue Medicare card in the mail the month your disability benefits begin.
MEDICARE Most people should enroll in Part A when they're first eligible, but certain people may choose to delay Part B. Find out more about whether you should take Part B.
Plan category: There are five plan categories – Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Catastrophic. The categories are based on how you and the plan share costs. Bronze plans usually have lower monthly premiums and higher out-of-pocket costs when you get care. Platinum plans usually have the highest premiums and lowest out-of-pocket costs.
