(2) Plan benefit packages. All plan benefit packages (PBPs) offered under an MA contract or PDP plan sponsor have the same overall and/or summary Star Ratings as the contract under which the PBP is offered by the MA organization or PDP plan sponsor. Data from all the PBPs offered under a contract are used to calculate the measure and domain ratings for the contract. A contract level score is calculated using an enrollment-weighted mean of the PBP scores and enrollment reported as part of the measure specification in each PBP.

Some physician contracts with MA organizations provide that the MA organization pay the physician a capitated amount to assume financial responsibility for services (for example, hospital costs) that they do not personally render. CMS refers to capitations to physicians that include services the physicians do not render as “global capitation.” When physicians are globally capitated to the extent that they can lose more than 25 percent of their income, they are required to be covered by stop-loss insurance. We propose to replace the current insurance schedule in the regulation with updated stop-loss insurance requirements that would allow insurance with higher deductibles. The new schedule would result in a significant reduction to the cost of obtaining stop-loss insurance. The higher deductibles are consistent with the increase in medical costs due to inflation.
Copay, Deductibles, Coinsurance Connect With Us Proposed codification of follow-on biological products as generics for the purposes of LIS cost sharing and non-LIS catastrophic cost sharing will reduce marketplace confusion about what level of cost-sharing Part D enrollees should be charged for follow-on biological products. By establishing cost sharing at the lower level, this provision would also improve Part D enrollee incentives to use follow-on biological products instead of reference biological products. As discussed previously, this would reducing costs to Part D enrollees and generate savings for the Part D program.
Medicare & You: understanding your Medicare choices We emphasize that in situations where the prescriber was enrolled and then revoked, CMS' determination would not negate the revocation itself. The prescriber would remain revoked from Medicare.

Look up an independent review decision KEEPING YOUR EMPLOYEES HEALTHY The name "Medicare" was originally given to a program providing medical care for families of individuals serving in the military as part of the Dependents' Medical Care Act, which was passed in 1956. President Dwight D. Eisenhower held the first White House Conference on Aging in January 1961, in which creating a health care program for social security beneficiaries was proposed. In July 1965, under the leadership of President Lyndon Johnson, Congress enacted Medicare under Title XVIII of the Social Security Act to provide health insurance to people age 65 and older, regardless of income or medical history. Johnson signed the bill into law on July 30, 1965 at the Harry S. Truman Presidential Library in Independence, Missouri. Former President Harry S. Truman and his wife, former First Lady Bess Truman became the first recipients of the program. Before Medicare was created, approximately 60% of people over the age of 65 had health insurance, with coverage often unavailable or unaffordable to many others, as older adults paid more than three times as much for health insurance as younger people. Many of this latter group (about 20% of the total in 2015) became "dual eligible" for both Medicare and Medicaid with passing the law. In 1966, Medicare spurred the racial integration of thousands of waiting rooms, hospital floors, and physician practices by making payments to health care providers conditional on desegregation.

In most cases, if you don’t sign up for Medicare Part B when you’re first eligible, you’ll have to pay a late enrollment penalty. You'll have to pay this penalty for as long as you have Part B and could have a gap in your health coverage.

Report Fraud & Abuse We note that, while section 1860D-4(c)(5)(B)(ii)(III) of the Act requires the initial written notice to the beneficiary, which identifies him or her as potentially being at-risk, to include “notice of, and information about, the right of the beneficiary to appeal such identification under subsection (h),” we interpret “such identification” to refer to any subsequent identification that the beneficiary is actually at-risk. Because CARA, at section 1860D-4(c)(5)(E) of the Act, specifically provides for appeal rights under subsection (h) but does not refer to identification as a potential at-risk beneficiary, we believe this interpretation is consistent with the statutory intent. Furthermore, when a beneficiary is identified as being potentially at-risk, but has not yet been identified as at-risk, the plan is not taking any action to limit such beneficiary's access to frequently abused drugs; therefore, the situation is not ripe for appeal. While an LIS SEP under § 423.38 would be restricted at the time the beneficiary is identified as potentially at-risk under proposed § 423.100, the loss of such SEP is not appealable under section 1860D-4(h) of the Act.
