HCA Connect blog Senior Care Connect with us: About Humana We also recognize that unique circumstances behind the potential or actual inclusion of a particular prescriber on the preclusion list could exist. Of foremost importance would be situations pertaining to beneficiary access to Part D drugs. We believe that we should have the discretion not to include (or, if warranted, to remove) a particular individual on the preclusion list (who otherwise meets the standards for said inclusion) should exceptional circumstances exist pertaining to beneficiary access to prescriptions. This could include circumstances similar to those described in section 1128(c)(3)(B) of the Act, whereby the Secretary may waive an OIG exclusion under section 1128(a)(1), (a)(3), or (a)(4) of the in the case of an individual or entity that is the sole community physician or sole source of essential specialized services in a community. In making a determination as to whether such circumstances exist, we would take into account— (1) the degree to which beneficiary access to Part D drugs would be impaired; and (2) any other evidence that CMS deems relevant to its determination.
++ In paragraph (c)(5)(iii)(B), we state that if the pharmacy: In order to estimate the additional costs for the projection window 2019-2023, we first made an assumption that approximately 24,600 MA-enrolled individuals will switch health plans from one without a QBP to one with a QBP during the extended open enrollment period. The 24,600 enrollee assumption was determined by using a combination of published research and by observing historical enrollment information. Published research1 shows that 10 percent of MA enrollees voluntarily switch MA plans and that MA enrollees who voluntarily switch plans change to plans with slightly higher star ratings than their original plan, with a modest improvement of Start Printed Page 564850.11 stars, on average. The Office of the Actuary confirmed these findings by analyzing CMS enrollment data and provided further detail. We estimate that of the 10 percent of MA plan enrollees who switch plans, 15 percent move to a higher rated plan. Of those who go to a higher rated plan, we estimate 40 percent move from a non-QBP plan to a QBP plan. We also estimate that one-fifth of these enrollees would take advantage of the new open enrollment period.

The balancing of these goals has led to the development of preferred pharmacy networks in which certain pharmacies agree to additional or different terms from the standard terms and conditions. This has resulted in the development of “standard” terms and conditions that in some cases has had the effect, in our view, of circumventing the any willing pharmacy requirements and inappropriately excluding pharmacies from network participation. This section is intended to clarify or modify our interpretation of the existing regulations to ensure that plan sponsors can continue to develop and maintain preferred networks while fully complying with the any willing pharmacy requirement.
