Many experts have suggested that establishing mechanisms to coordinate care for the dual-eligibles could yield substantial savings in the Medicare program, mostly by reducing hospitalizations. Such programs would connect patients with primary care, create an individualized health plan, assist enrollees in receiving social and human services as well as medical care, reconcile medications prescribed by different doctors to ensure they do not undermine one another, and oversee behavior to improve health.[146] The general ethos of these proposals is to "treat the patient, not the condition,"[140] and maintain health while avoiding costly treatments.

Blue Cross Blue Shield By Martha Bellisle, Associated Press Individuals and Families About Us and Site Notices Remember me Minnesota Renewable Energy Integration & Transmission Study For Brokers parent page Find a plan Shop Plans We are proposing to allow the electronic delivery of certain information normally provided in hard copy documents such as the Evidence of Coverage (EOC). Additionally, we are proposing to change the timeframe for delivery of the EOC in particular to the first day of the Annual Election Period (AEP) rather than fifteen days prior to that date. Allowing plans to provide the EOC electronically would alleviate plan burden related to printing and mailing, and simultaneously would reduce the number of paper documents that beneficiaries receive from plans. This would allow beneficiaries to focus on materials, like the Annual Notice of Change (ANOC), that drive decision making. Changing the date by which plans must provide the EOC to members would allow plans more time to finalize the formatting and ensure the accuracy of the information, as well as further distance it from the ANOC, which must still be delivered 15 days prior to the AEP. We see this proposed change as an overall reduction of impact that our regulations have on plans and beneficiaries. In aggregate, we estimate a savings (to plans for not producing Start Printed Page 56340and mailing hard-copy EOCs) of approximately $51 million.

Section 423.564 is amended by revising paragraph (b) to read as follows:  § 423.2264 6 Out-of-pocket costs § 422.222   Reuse Permissions What you pay in a Medicare Advantage plan As noted in section II.A.1. of this proposed rule previously, we are proposing to implement the CARA Part D drug management program provisions by integrating them with our current policy that is not currently codified, but would be under this proposal. In using the term “current policy”, we refer to the aspect of our current Part D opioid overutilization policy that is based on retrospective DUR.[2] Specifically, we are proposing a regulatory framework for Part D plan sponsors to voluntarily adopt drug management programs through which they address potential overutilization of frequently abused drugs identified retrospectively through the application of clinical guidelines/criteria that identify potential at-risk beneficiaries and conduct case management which incorporates clinical contact and prescriber verification that a beneficiary is an at-risk beneficiary. If deemed necessary, a sponsor could limit at-risk beneficiaries' access to coverage for such drugs through pharmacy lock-in, prescriber lock-in, and/or a beneficiary-specific point-of-sale (POS) claim edit. Finally, sponsors would report to CMS the status and results of their case management to OMS and any beneficiary coverage limitations they have implemented to MARx, CMS' system for payment and enrollment transactions. While plan sponsors would have the option to implement a drug management program, our proposal codifies a framework that would place requirements upon such programs. We foresee that all plan sponsors will implement such drug management programs based on our experience that all plan sponsors' are complying with the current policy as laid out in guidance, the fact that our proposal largely incorporates the CARA drug management provisions into existing CMS and sponsor operations, and especially, in light of the national opioid epidemic and the declaration that the opioid crisis is a nationwide Public Health Emergency.
