After an Accident AARP The Magazine Under 1852(e) of the Act, MA organizations are required to collect, analyze, and report data that permit measurement of health outcomes and other indices of quality. The Star Ratings System is based on information collected consistent with section 1852(e) of the Act. Section 1852(e)(3)(B) of the Act prohibits the collection of data on quality, outcomes, and beneficiary satisfaction other than the types of data that were collected by the Secretary as of November 1, 2003; there is a limited exception for SNPs to collect, analyze, and report data that permit the measurement of health outcomes and other indicia of quality. The statute does not require that only the same data be collected, but that we do not change or expand the type of data collected until after submission of a Report to Congress (prepared in consultation with MA organizations and accrediting bodies) that explains the reason for the change(s). We clarify here that the types of data included under the Star Ratings System are consistent with the types of data collected as of November 1, 2003. Since 1997, Medicare managed care organizations have been required to annually report quality of care performance measures through HEDIS. We have also been conducting the CAHPS survey since 1997 to measure beneficiaries' experiences with their health plans, and since 2007 we have been measuring experiences with drug plans with CAHPS. HOS began in 1998 to capture changes in the physical and mental health of MA enrollees. To some extent, these surveys have been revised and updated over time, but the same types of data—clinical measures, beneficiary experiences, and changes in physical and mental health, respectively—have remained the focus of these surveys. In addition, there are several measures in the Stars Ratings System that are based on performance that address telephone customer service, members' complaints, disenrollment rates, and appeals; however these additional measures are not collected directly from the sponsoring organizations for the primary purpose of quality measurement. These additional measures are calculated from information that CMS has gathered as part of the administration of the Medicare program, such as information on appeals forwarded to the Independent Review Entity under subparts M, enrollment, and compliance and enforcement actions.

With respect to beneficiaries who would also be entitled to a transition, we are not proposing any change to the current policy. If a Part D sponsor determines when adjudicating a pharmacy claim that a beneficiary is entitled to provisional coverage because the prescriber is on the preclusion list, but the drug is off-formulary and the transition requirements set forth in § 423.120(b)(3) are also triggered, the beneficiary would not receive more than the applicable transition supply of the drug, unless a formulary exception is approved. We note that we considered proposing that the transition requirements would not apply during the provisional supply period in order to simplify the policy for situations when both apply to reduce beneficiary confusion. We seek comment on this or other alternatives for these situations.

Awards and Recognition DE Dual Eligible While we do not propose mandating its use at this time, one transaction supported by the proposed version of NCPDP SCRIPT would also provide interested users with a Census transaction functionality which is designed to service beneficiaries residing in long term care. The Census feature would trigger timely notification of a beneficiary's absence from a long term care facility, which would enable discontinuation of daily medication dispensing when a leave of absence occurs, thereby preventing the dispensing of unneeded medications. Version 2017071 also contains an enhanced Prescription Fill Status Notification that allows the prescriber to specify if/when they want to receive the notifications from the dispenser. It now supports data elements for diabetic supply prescriptions and includes elements which could be required for the pharmacy during the dispensing process which may be of value to prescribers who need to closely monitor medication adherence.
Limited Time Offers contact us United Health Care Community Plan We promulgated regulations under the authority of section 1860D-11(d)(2)(B) of the Act to require Part D sponsors to provide for an appropriate transition process for enrollees prescribed Part D drugs that are not on the prescription drug plan's formulary (including Part D drugs that are on a sponsor's formulary but require prior authorization or step therapy under a plan's utilization management rules). These regulations are codified at § 423.120(b)(3). Specifically, these regulations require that a Part D sponsor ensure certain enrollees access to a temporary supply of drugs within the first 90 days under a new plan (including drugs that are on a plan's formulary but require prior authorization or step therapy under a plan's utilization management rules) by ensuring a temporary fill when an enrollee requests a fill of a non-formulary drug during this time period. In the outpatient setting, the supply must be for at least 30 days of medication, unless the prescription is written for less. In the LTC setting, this supply must be for up to at least 91 days and may be up to 98 days, consistent with the dispensing increment, unless a less amount is prescribed.
(b) Contract ratings—(1) General. CMS calculates an overall Star Rating, Part C summary rating, and Part D summary rating for each MA-PD contract, and a Part C summary rating for each MA-only contract using the 5-star rating system described in this subpart. Measures are assigned stars at the contract level and weighted in accordance with § 422.166(a). Domain ratings are the unweighted mean of the individual measure ratings under the topic area in accordance with § 422.166(b). Summary ratings are the weighted mean of the individual measure ratings for Part C or Part D in accordance with § 422.166(c). Overall Star Ratings are calculated by using the weighted mean of the individual measure ratings in accordance with § 422.166(d) with both the reward factor and CAI applied as applicable, as described in § 422.166(f).
