SHRM Annual Conference & Exposition Obamacare To ensure that Medicaid beneficiaries considered for default enrollment upon their conversion to Medicare are aware of the default MA enrollment and of the changes to their Medicare and Medicaid coverage, we also propose, at § 422.66(c)(2)(i)(C) and (c)(2)(iv), that the MA organization must issue a notice no fewer than 60 days before the default enrollment effective date to the enrollee. The proposed revised notice  must include clear information on the D-SNP, as well as instructions to the individual on how to opt out (or decline) the default enrollment and how to enroll in Original Medicare or a different MA plan. This notice requirement aims to help ensure a smooth transition of eligible individuals into the D-SNP for those who choose not to opt out. All MA organizations currently approved to conduct seamless conversion enrollment issue at least one notice 60 days prior to the MA enrollment effective date, so our proposal would not result in any additional burden to these MA organizations using this process. Recent discussions with MA organizations currently conducting seamless conversion enrollment have revealed that several of them already include in their process additional outreach, including reminder notices and outbound telephone calls to aid in the transition. We believe that these additional outreach efforts are helpful and we would encourage their use under our proposal.

(2)(i) A contract must have scores for at least 50 percent of the measures required to be reported for the contract type to have a summary rating calculated.
Each contract's improvement change score would be categorized as a significant change or not by employing a two tailed t-test with a level of significance of 0.05.
Using myBlueCross Other coverage options This proposed approach to developing and updating the clinical guidelines would also be flexible enough to allow for updates to the guidelines outside of the regulatory process to address trends in Medicare with respect to the misuse and/or diversion of frequently abused drugs. We have determined this approach is appropriate to enable CMS to assist Part D drug management programs in being responsive to public health issues over time. This approach would also be consistent with how the OMS criteria have been established over time through the annual Medicare Parts C&D Call Letter process, which we plan to continue except for 2019.

Considering the program integrity risk that the two previously mentioned sets of prescribers present, we must be able to accordingly protect Medicare beneficiaries and the Trust Funds. We thus propose to revise § 423.120(c)(6), as further specified in this proposed rule, to require that a Part D plan sponsor must reject, or must require its PBM to reject, a pharmacy claim (or deny a beneficiary request for reimbursement) for a Part D drug prescribed by an individual on the preclusion list. We believe we have the legal authority for such a provision because sections 1102 and 1871 of the Act provide general authority for the Secretary to prescribe regulations for the efficient administration of the Medicare program; also, section 1860D-12(b)(3)(D) of the Act authorizes the Secretary to add additional Part D contract terms as necessary and appropriate, so long as they are not inconsistent with the Part D statute. We note also that our proposal is of particular importance when considering the current nationwide opioid crisis. We believe that the inclusion of problematic prescribers on the preclusion list could reduce the amount of opioids that are improperly or unnecessarily prescribed by persons who pose a heightened risk to the Part D program and Medicare beneficiaries.
Enrollment Events Events & History We propose that, consistent with the timeframes discussed in proposed paragraph § 423.153(f)(7), if the Part D plan sponsor takes no additional action to identify the individual as an at-risk beneficiary within 90 days from the initial notice, the “potentially at-risk” designation and the duals' SEP limitation would expire. If the sponsor determines that the potential at-risk beneficiary is an at-risk beneficiary, the Start Printed Page 56352duals' SEP would not be available to that beneficiary until the date the beneficiary's at-risk status is terminated based on a subsequent determination, including a successful appeal, or at the end of a 12-month period calculated from the effective date the sponsor provided the beneficiary in the second notice as proposed at § 423.153(f)(6) whichever is sooner.
