In 42 CFR part 417, subpart L, we address certain contractual requirements concerning health maintenance organizations (HMOs) and competitive medical plans (CMPs) that contract with CMS to furnish covered services to Medicare beneficiaries. Under § 417.478(e), the contract between CMS and the HMO or CMP must, among other things, provide that the HMO or CMP agrees to comply with “Sections 422.222 and 422.224, which require all providers and suppliers that are types of individuals or entities that can enroll in Medicare in accordance with section 1861 of the Act, to be enrolled in Medicare in an approved status and prohibits payment to providers and suppliers that are excluded or revoked.” Paragraph (e) adds that this requirement includes “locum tenens suppliers and, if applicable, incident-to suppliers.”
DEFINED CONTRIBUTION National Health Care Reform Demonstrations/pilot programs We propose that before a Part D plan sponsor could limit the access of at-risk beneficiary to coverage for frequently abused drugs, the sponsor must first take certain actions, consistent with current policy. We propose that a sponsor must first conduct the case management discussed earlier, which includes clinical contact to determine whether prescribed medications are appropriate for the potential at-risk beneficiary's medical conditions and prescriber verification that the beneficiary is an at-risk beneficiary. We also propose that the sponsor must first obtain the agreement of the prescribers of frequently abused drugs with the limitation, unless the prescribers were not responsive to the required case management, in light of the risk to the beneficiary's health. We further propose that the sponsor must first provide notice to the beneficiary in accordance with section 1860D-4(c)(5)(B)(i)(I) of the Act.

Reference Materials Foreclosures A to Z Index Dictionary: In most states, insurers are allowed to charge smokers more than nonsmokers, and this surcharge can vary by state and by age. For instance, older smokers can face higher surcharges than younger smokers. In plans that vary the surcharge by age, consumers who smoke will see a premium change due to the change in the tobacco use surcharge. In addition, consumers who have either started or stopped using tobacco products could see a premium change. Finally, carriers are allowed to change their tobacco rating factors with sufficient justification. This change in rating factors, similar to the change in age rating factors noted above, will also cause changes to consumer premiums.
