Because case management is very resource intensive for sponsors and PBMs, we have limited the scope of the current policy in terms of the number of beneficiaries identified by OMS, and when expanding that number, we have made changes incrementally through annual Parts C&D Call Letter process.

Quick Links: We propose in §§ 422.166(i)(3) and 423.186(i)(3) that CMS have plan preview periods before each Star Ratings release, consistent with current practice. Part C and D sponsors can preview their Star Ratings data in HPMS prior to display on the Medicare Plan Finder. During the first plan preview, we expect Part C and D sponsors to closely review the methodology and their posted numeric data for each measure. The second plan preview would include any revisions made as a result of the first plan preview. In addition, our preliminary Star Ratings for each measure, domain, summary score, and overall score would be displayed. During the second plan preview, we expect Part C and D sponsors to again closely review the methodology and their posted data for each measure, as well as their preliminary Star Rating assignments. As part of this regulation, we are proposing that CMS continue to offer plan preview periods, but are not codifying the details of each period because over time the process has evolved to provide more data to sponsors to help validate their data. We envision it to continue to evolve in the future and do not believe that codifying specific display content is necessary.
Community Partners Accordingly, we are proposing to add a new paragraph (5) to § 405.924(a) to clarify that these premium adjustments, made in accordance with sections 1818 and 1839(b) of the Act, §§ 406.32(d) and 408.22 of this chapter, and 20 CFR 418.1301, constitute initial determinations under section 1869(a)(1) of the Act. Because this proposed change seeks only to codify existing processes related to premium adjustments, and not to alter existing processes or procedures, it applies only to Part A and Part B late enrollment and reenrollment penalties. Based on 1860D-13(b)(6)(C) of the Act, CMS does not consider Part D late enrollment and reenrollment penalties to be initial determinations. As a result, their appeal rights stop at the reconsideration level.
Even if you're not eligible for premium-free Part A, you should still sign up for Part B (and Part D if you need drug coverage) at the right time for you. Otherwise, your coverage will be delayed and you'd most likely have to pay late penalties for all future years.

LEGAL AND PRIVACY Calendar In response to stakeholder concerns about CMS' prior practice of reducing measure ratings to one star based on any finding of data inaccuracy, incompleteness, or bias, CMS initiated the Timeliness Monitoring Project (TMP) in CY 2017. The first submission for the TMP was for the measurement year 2016 related to Part C organization determinations and reconsiderations and Part D coverage determinations and redeterminations. The timeframe for the submitted data was dependent on the enrollment of the contract with smaller contracts submitting data from a three-month period, medium-sized contracts submitting data from a two-month period, and larger contracts submitting data from a one-month period.
