Start Part Control Costs with Medigap restrictions Under section 1857(b) of the Act, CMS may not enter into a contract with a MA organization unless the organization complies with the minimum enrollment requirement. Under the basic rule at § 422.514(a), to provide health care benefits under the MA program, MA organizations must demonstrate that they have the capability to enroll at least 5,000 individuals, and provider sponsored organizations (PSOs) must demonstrate that they have the capability to enroll at least 1,500 individuals. If an MA organization intends to offer health care benefits outside urbanized areas as defined in § 422.62(f), then the minimum enrollment level is reduced to 1,500 for MA organizations and to 500 for PSOs. The statute permits CMS to waive this requirement in the first 3 years of the contract for an MA contract applicant. We have codified this authority at § 422.514(b) and limited it to circumstances where the MA contract applicant is capable of administering and managing an MA contract and is able to manage the level of risk required under the contract. We are proposing to revise § 422.514 regarding the minimum enrollment requirements to improve program efficiencies.

(800) 633-4227 Kiplinger's Retirement Report The survey-based measures (that is, CAHPS, HOS, and HEDIS measures collected through CAHPS or HOS) would use enrollment of the surviving and consumed contracts at the time the sample is pulled for the rating year. For example, for a contract consolidation that is effective January 1, 2021 the CAHPS sample for the 2021 Star Ratings would be pulled in January 2020 so enrollment in January 2020 would be used. The call center measures would use mean enrollment during the study period. We believe that these proposals for survey-based measures are more nuanced and account for how the data underlying those measures are gathered. By using the enrollment-weighted means we are reflecting the true underlying performance of both the surviving and consumed contracts.

We also considered proposing regulations to limit the use of default enrollment to only the aged population. While this alternative would simplify a MA organization's ability to identify eligible individuals, we have concerns about disparate treatment among newly eligible individuals based on their reason for obtaining Medicare entitlement.

AMA American Medical Association We estimate a total annual burden for all MA organizations resulting from this proposed provision to be 111,600 hours (46,500 hour + 9,300 hour + 9,300 hour + 46,500 hour) at a cost of $6,103,218 ($3,212,220 + $642,444 + $642,444 + $1,606,110). Per organization, we estimate an annual burden of 238 hours (111,600 hour/468 MA organizations) at a cost of $13,041 ($6,103,218/468 organizations). For beneficiaries we estimate a total annual burden of 279,000 hours at a cost of $2,022,750 and a per beneficiary burden of 30 minutes at $3.63.

In section II.A.9 of this proposed rule, we are proposing a limited expansion of passive enrollment authority. More specifically, the new provisions at § 422.60(g) would allow CMS, in consultation with a state Medicaid agency, to implement passive enrollment procedures in situations where criteria identified in the regulation text are met. We propose the criteria based on our policy determination that passive enrollment is appropriate in those cases to promote integrated care and continuity of care for full-benefit dual eligible beneficiaries who are currently enrolled in an integrated D-SNP.
Local Interests The proposed provisions would specifically permit Part D sponsors that meet our requirements to remove brand name drugs (or change their cost-sharing status) when replacing them with (or adding) newly approved generics without providing advance notice or submitting formulary change requests. We would also permit Part D sponsors to make such changes at any time of the year rather than waiting for them to take effect 2 months after the start of the plan year. A related proposal would except from our transition policy applicable generic substitutions and additions with cost-sharing changes. Lastly, we are proposing to decrease the days of enrollee notice and refill required in cases in which (aside from generic substitutions and drugs deemed unsafe or removed from the market) drug removal or changes in cost-sharing will affect enrollees.
