Section § 422.62 is amended by— In cases in which the Part D sponsor would necessarily have to send notice after the fact, for example instances in which a drug is not released to the market until after the beginning of the plan year and the Part D sponsor then immediately makes a generic substitution, the proposed general notice would have already advised enrollees that they would receive information about any specific drug generic substitutions that affected them and that they would still be able to request coverage determinations and exceptions. While the timing would most likely mean most enrollees would only be able to make such requests after receiving a generic drug fill, in the vast majority of cases, an enrollee could not be certain that a generic substitution would not work unless he or she actually tried the generic drug. Additionally, we are strongly encouraging Part D sponsors to provide the retrospective direct notices of these generic substitutions (including direct notice to affected enrollees and notice to entities including CMS) no later than by the end of the month after which the change becomes effective. While sponsors are required to report this information to both enrollees and entities including CMS, we currently are not proposing to codify the end of month timing requirement; however, if we were to finalize this provision and thereafter find that Part D sponsors were not timely providing retrospective notice, we would reexamine this policy.

They are displayed to the nearest whole star, using a 1-5 star scale. We propose to continue this policy at paragraph (b)(2)(ii). We also propose that a contract must have stars for at least 50 percent of the measures required to be reported for that domain for that contract type to have that domain rating calculated in order to have enough data to reflect the contract's performance on the specific dimension. For example, if a contract is rated only on one measure in Staying Healthy: Screenings, Tests and Vaccines, that one measure would not necessarily be representative of how the contract performs across the whole domain so we do not believe it is appropriate to calculate and display a domain rating. We propose to continue this policy by providing, at paragraph (b)(2)(i), that a minimum number of measures must be reported for a domain rating to be calculated.
