Revisions to Timing and Method of Disclosure Requirements (§§ 422.111 and 423.128) Wasting the effort and resources needed to conduct enrollee needs assessments and developing plans of care for services covered by Medicare and Medicaid; We have determined that providing access to services (or specific cost sharing for services or items) that is tied to health status or disease state in a manner that ensures that similarly situated individuals are treated uniformly is consistent with the uniformity requirement in the Medicare Advantage (MA) regulations at § 422.100(d). This regulatory requirement is a means to implement both section 1852(d) of the Act, which requires that benefits under the MA plan be available and accessible to each enrollee in the plan, and section 1854(c) of the Act, which requires uniform premiums for each enrollee in the plan. Previously, we required MA plans to offer all enrollees access to the same benefits at the same level of cost sharing. We have determined that these statutory provisions and the regulation at § 422.100(d) mean that we have the authority to permit MA organizations the ability to reduce cost sharing for certain covered benefits, offer specific tailored supplemental benefits, and offer lower deductibles for enrollees that meet specific medical criteria, provided that similarly situated enrollees (that is, all enrollees who meet the identified criteria) are treated the same. For example, reduced cost sharing flexibility would allow an MA plan to offer diabetic enrollees zero cost sharing for endocrinologist visits. Similarly, with this flexibility, a MA plan may offer diabetic enrollees more frequent foot exams as a tailored, supplemental benefit. In addition, with this flexibility, a MA plan may offer diabetic enrollees a lower deductible. Under this example, non-diabetic enrollees would not have access to these diabetic-specific tailored cost-sharing or supplemental benefits; however, any enrollee that develops diabetes would then have access to these benefits.

Marketing code 8000 includes creditable coverage and late enrollment penalty (LEP) notices that will fall outside of the new regulatory definition of marketing and no longer require submission. Over the 12-month period sampled, this represents 559 material submissions. In identifying whether to add a measure, we will be guided by the principles we listed in section III.A.12.b. of the proposed rule. Measures should be aligned with best practices among payers and the needs of the end users, including beneficiaries. Our strategy is to continue to adopt measures when they are available, nationally endorsed, and in alignment with the private sector, as we do today through the use of measures developed by NCQA and the PQA, and the use of measures that are endorsed by the National Quality Forum (NQF). We propose to codify this standard for adopting new measures at §§ 422.164(c)(1) and 423.184(c)(1). We do not intend this standard to require that a measure be adopted by an independent measure steward or endorsed by NQF in order for us to propose its use for the Star Ratings, but that these are considerations that will guide us as we develop such proposals. We also propose that CMS may develop its own measures as well when appropriate to measure and reflect performance in the Medicare program. (A) The table and the methodology in this paragraph (f)(2)(iv) only address capitation arrangements in the PIP and that other stop-loss insurance needs to be used for non-capitated arrangements. 76. Section 423.562 is amended by revising paragraph (a)(1)(ii), adding paragraph (a)(1)(v), and revising paragraph (b)(4) to read as follows: The 21st Century Cures Act (the Cures Act) amended section 1851(e)(2) of the Act by adding a new continuous open enrollment and disenrollment period (OEP) for MA and certain PDP members. See section III.A.X for CMS's other proposal related to that provision. As part of establishing this OEP, the Cures Act prohibits unsolicited marketing and mailing marketing materials to individuals who are eligible for the new OEP. We are proposing to add a new paragraph (b)(9) to both proposed §§ 422.2268 and 423.2268 to apply this prohibition on marketing. However, we request comment on how the agency could implement this statutory requirement. The new OEP is not available for enrollees in Medicare cost plans; therefore, these limitations would apply to MA enrollees and to any PDP enrollee who was enrolled in an MA plan the prior year. CMS is concerned that it may be difficult for a sponsoring organization to limit marketing to only those individuals who have not yet enrolled in a plan during the OEP. One mechanism could be to limit marketing entirely during that period, but we are concerned that such a prohibition would be too broad We believe that using a “knowing” standard will both effectuate the statutory provision and avoid against overly broad implementation. We welcome comment on how a sponsoring organization could appropriately control who would or should be marketed to during the new OEP, such as through as mailing campaigns aimed at a more general audience.Start Printed Page 56437 Last updated Tue 5 January 2016 Last updated Tue 5 Jan 2016 Disaster Information Center Subscribe to Emails YouTube H5959_080318JJ10_M Accepted 08/19/2018 Find Your Doc Member ID Card Compare Brokers 13,500 200,000 159 Virginia Richmond $327 $373 14% $482 $516 7% $719 $584 -19% Veterans and family members You can apply through Social Security in the following ways: The FEHB health plan brochures explain how they coordinate benefits with Medicare, depending on the type of Medicare managed care plan you have.
