Enrollment in these plans depends on the plan's contract renewal with Medicare. a. Beneficiary Estimate (Current OMB Control Number 0938-0753 (CMS-R-267)) never stop 422.160 Under a new proposed SEP, individuals who have a change in their Medicaid or LIS-eligible status would have an election opportunity that is separate from, and in addition to, the two scenarios discussed previously. (As discussed in section III.A.2. of this rule, and unlike the other two conditions discussed previously, individuals identified as “at risk” would be able to use this SEP.) This would apply to individuals who gain, lose, or change Medicaid or LIS eligibility. We believe that in these instances, it would be appropriate to give these beneficiaries an opportunity to re-evaluate their Part D coverage in light of their changing circumstances. Beneficiaries eligible for this SEP would need to use it within 2 months of the change or of being notified of the change, whichever is later. We also propose to revise § 422.310 to add a new paragraph (d)(5) to require that, for data described in paragraph (d)(1) as data equivalent to Medicare fee-for-service data (which is also known as MA encounter data), MA organizations must submit a National Provider Identifier in a Billing Provider field on each MA encounter data record, per CMS guidance. We do not expect any additional burden from this particular proposal, for this activity is consistent with existing policy.

Personalized guidance of next steps -------------------------- A new white paper provides evidence that "the rising values of fringe benefits, such as health insurance, may have offset potential wage gains for middle-income workers," which have plateaued at about 3 percent despite falling unemployment. The authors, Jeff Larrimore of the Federal Reserve and David Splinter of the Joint Committee on Taxation, contend that when factoring in the cost of health coverage, "total compensation may be higher than previously believed, also implying that employer-sponsored health insurance benefits may represent a larger share of employee compensation." In addition, the application of the continuous SEP carries different service delivery implications for enrollees of MA-PD plans and related products than for standalone enrollees of PDPs. At the outset of the Part D program, when drug coverage for dually eligible beneficiaries was transitioned from Medicaid to Medicare, there were concerns about how CMS would effectively identify, educate, and enroll dually eligible beneficiaries. While processes (for example, auto-enrollment, reassignment) were established to facilitate coverage, the continuous SEP served as a fail-safe to ensure that the beneficiary was always in a position to make a choice that best served their healthcare needs. Unintended consequences have resulted from this flexibility, including, as noted by the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC [32] ), opportunities for marketing abuses. FIND A DOCTOR child pages Nonresident Producers As new performance measures are developed and adopted, we propose, at §§ 422.164(c)(3) and (4) and 423.184(c)(3) and (4), that they would initially be incorporated into the display page for at least 2 years but that we would keep a new measure on the display page for a longer period if CMS finds there are reliability or validity issues with the measure. As noted in the Start Printed Page 56384Introduction, the rulemaking process will create a longer lead time for changes, in particular to add a new measure to the Star Ratings or to make substantive changes to measures as discussed later in this section. Here is an example timeline for adding a new measure to the Star Ratings. In this scenario, the new measure has already been developed by the NCQA and the PQA, and endorsed by the NQF. Otherwise, that process may add an extra 3 to 5 years to the timeline.

We are proposing that reviews of 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 part 423 Subparts M and U. Consistent with existing rules for redeterminations, an enrollee who wishes to dispute an at-risk determination would have 60 days from the date of the notice of the determination to make such request, must affirmatively request IRE review of an adverse plan level appeal decision made under a plan sponsor's drug management program, and would have rights to an expedited redetermination. Revisions to regulations in part 423 Subparts M (§§ 423.558, 423.560, 423.562, 423.564, 423.580, 423.582, 423.584, 423.590, 423.602, 423.636, and 423.638) and U (§§ 423.1970, 423.2018, 423.2020, 423.2022, 423.2032, 423.2036, 423.2038, 423.2046, 423.2056, 423.2062, 423.2122 and 423.2126) are being proposed to account for reviews of at-risk determinations.

Under a point-of-sale rebate policy designed as we have described in this comment solicitation, beneficiaries would see lower prices at the pharmacy point-of-sale, and on Plan Finder, beginning immediately in the year the policy takes effect. Lower point-of-sale prices would result directly in lower cost-sharing costs for non-low income beneficiaries, especially for those who use drugs in highly competitive, highly-rebated categories or classes. For low income beneficiaries whose out-of-pocket costs are subsidized through Medicare's low-income cost-sharing subsidy, cost-sharing savings resulting from lower point-of-sale prices would accrue to the government. Plan premiums would likely increase as a result of such a point-of-sale rebate policy—if some rebates are required to be passed through to beneficiaries at the point of sale, fewer such concessions could be apportioned to reduce plan liability, which would have the effect of Start Printed Page 56425increasing the cost of coverage under the plan. At the same time, the reduction in cost-sharing obligations for the average beneficiary would likely be large enough to lower their overall out-of-pocket costs. The increasing cost of coverage under Part D plans as a result of rebates being applied at the point of sale likely would have a more significant impact on government costs, which would increase overall due to the significant growth in Medicare's direct subsidies of plan premiums and low income premium subsidies.

Medicare differs from private insurance available to working Americans in that it is a social insurance program. Social insurance programs provide statutorily guaranteed benefits to the entire population (under certain circumstances, such as old age or unemployment). These benefits are financed in significant part through universal taxes. In effect, Medicare is a mechanism by which the state takes a portion of its citizens' resources to guarantee health and financial security to its citizens in old age or in case of disability, helping them cope with the enormous, unpredictable cost of health care. In its universality, Medicare differs substantially from private insurers, which must decide whom to cover and what benefits to offer to manage their risk pools and guarantee their costs don't exceed premiums.[citation needed] Measures Management System Fraud prevention Find an agent   Average MME Number of opioid prescribers or opioid dispensing pharmacies Estimated number of potentially at-risk Part D beneficiaries Tennessee - TN Note: Monetized figures in 2018 dollars.
