Establishing Limitations for the Part D Special Election Period (SEP) for Dually Eligible Beneficiaries (§ 423.38) In addition, because we would be receiving only the minimum amount of data from MAOs and Part D sponsors, we expect that we would reduce the amount we pay to contractors for software development, data management, and technical support related to MLR reporting. We currently pays a contractor $300,000 each year for these services. Although we expect that MAOs and Part D sponsors would continue to use the HPMS or a similar system to submit and attest to their simplified MLR submissions, we would no longer need to maintain and update MLR reporting software with validation features, to receive certain data extract files, or to provide support for desk review functionality. We estimate, by eliminating these services, we would reduce our payments to contractors by approximately $100,000 a year.

The average number of MA and Part D contracts subject to the annual MLR reporting requirements for contract years 2014 to 2018 is 587. The total number of MA and Part D contracts is relatively stable year over year. To calculate the estimated administrative costs of MLR reporting under the proposed amendments to §§ 422.2460 and 423.2460, we assume that 587 MA and Part D contracts would be subject to the MLR reporting requirements in each contract year. 423.120(c)(6) create model notices 0938-0964 212 212 3 hr 636 69.08 43,935 What to do if you work past 65 2017-25068 En español Given the competing priorities of sponsors' diligently addressing opioid overutilization in the Part D program through case management, which may necessitate telephone calls to the prescribers, while being cognizant of the need to be judicious in contacting prescribers telephonically in order to not unnecessarily disrupt their practices, we wish to leave flexibility in the regulation text for sponsors to balance these priorities on a case-by-case basis in their drug management programs, particularly since this flexibility exists under the current policy. We note however, that we propose a 3 attempts/10 business days requirement for sponsors to conclude that a prescriber is unresponsive to case management in § 423.153(f)(4) discussed later in this section.

Federal Employees › Title Additional Benefits Privacy practices Employers (BluesEnroll) We propose to modify § 422.506(a)(3) to remove language that indicates late non-renewals may be permitted by CMS so that there would only be one process—mutual termination under §§ 422.508—that is applicable if CMS is not taking action under § 422.506(b) or § 422.510. Also, we propose to amend §§ 422.508 and 423.508 to clarify that organizations that request to non-renew a contract after the first Monday in June are in effect requesting that CMS agree to mutually terminate their contract.

New Mexico - NM The same helpful information as before, just in a new place. Consumer Assistance Program Individual and Family As regards content, § 423.128(d)(2)(iii) requires—and would continue to do so under the proposed revisions—that Part D sponsors post online notice regarding any removal or change in the preferred or tiered cost-sharing status of a Part D drug on its Part D plan's formulary. Posting information online related to removing a specific drug or changing its cost-sharing solely to meet the content requirements of § 423.128(d)(2)(iii) cannot replace general notice under proposed § 423.120(b)(5)(iv)(C); direct notice to affected enrollees under § 423.120(b)(5)(ii); or notice to CMS when required under § 423.120(b)(5). For instance, as noted in the January, 28, 2005 final rule (70 FR 4265), we view online notification under § 423.128(d)(2)(iii) on its own as an inadequate means of providing specific information to the enrollees who most need it, and we consider it an additional way that Part D sponsors provide notice of formulary changes to affected enrollees.

During this time, The U.S. approach to trade negotiation misunderstands modern China. We are proposing that at-risk determinations made under the processes at § 423.153(f) be adjudicated under the existing Part D benefit appeals process and timeframes set forth in Subpart M. However, we are not proposing to revise the existing definition of a coverage determination. The types of decisions made under a drug management program align more closely with the regulatory provisions in Subpart D than with the provisions in Subpart M related to coverage or payment for a drug based on whether the drug is medically necessary for an enrollee. Therefore, we believe it is clearer to set forth the rules for at-risk determinations as part of § 423.153 and cross reference § 423.153(f) in relevant provisions in Subpart M and Subpart U. While a coverage determination made under a drug management program would be subject to the existing rules related to coverage determinations, the other types of initial determinations made under a drug management program (for example, a restriction on the at-risk beneficiary's access to coverage of frequently abused drugs to those that are prescribed for the beneficiary by one or more prescribers) would be subject to the processes set forth at proposed § 423.153(f). Consistent with existing rules for redeterminations at § 423.582, an enrollee who wishes to dispute an at-risk determination would have 60 days from the date of the second written notice to make such request, unless the enrollee shows good cause for untimely filing under § 423.582(c). As previously discussed for proposed § 423.153(f)(6), the second written notice is sent to a beneficiary the plan has identified as an at-risk beneficiary and with respect to whom the sponsor limits his or her access to coverage of frequently abused drugs regarding the requirements of the sponsor's drug management programs.
