We solicit comment on these proposed changes, particularly whether our proposal is based on the best understanding of the motives and incentives applicable to MA organizations and Part D sponsors to engage in fraud reduction activities. We also solicit comment on the types of activities that should be included in, or excluded from, fraud reduction activities. In addition, we solicit comment on alternative approaches to accounting for fraud reduction activities in the MLR calculation. In particular, we are interested in receiving input on: As provided at §§ 417.454(e), 422.100(f)(6), and 422.100(j), MA plan cost sharing for Parts A and B services specified by CMS must not exceed certain levels. Section 422.100(f)(6) provides that cost sharing must not be discriminatory and CMS determines annually the level at which certain cost sharing becomes discriminatory. Sections 417.454(e) and 422.100(j), on the other hand, are based on how section 1852(a)(1)(B)(iii) and (iv) of the Act directs that cost sharing for certain services may not exceed cost sharing levels in Medicare Fee-for-Service (FFS); under the statute and the regulations, CMS may add to that list of services. CMS reviews cost sharing set by MA organizations using parameters based on Parts A and B services that are more likely to have a discriminatory impact on beneficiaries. The review parameters are currently based on Medicare FFS data and reflect a combination of patient utilization scenarios and length of stays or services used by average to sicker patients. CMS uses multiple utilization scenarios for some services (for example, inpatient care) to guard against MA organizations distributing benefit cost sharing amounts in a manner that is discriminatory. Review parameters are also established for frequently used professional services, such as primary and specialty care services. At the same time, you can also enroll in Medicare Part B, which covers doctors' visits and outpatient care. This coverage exacts a monthly premium ($104.90 for most people in 2013), plus a deductible and coinsurance. (If you're collecting Social Security when you turn 65, you will automatically be enrolled in Part A and Part B, and the Part B premium will be deducted from your benefits.) If you still have health coverage through work or are covered by your spouse's employer, you may be better off keeping that coverage and delaying Part B. Ask your employer for help deciding, or call Social Security at 800-772-1213. Jump up ^ Hines AL, Barrett ML, Jiang HJ, Steiner CA (April 2014).

We solicit comment on our proposal, specifically the following: Because case management is very resource intensive for sponsors and PBMs, we have limited the scope of the current policy in terms of the number of beneficiaries identified by OMS, and when expanding that number, we have made changes incrementally through annual Parts C&D Call Letter process. The Original Medicare Plan (Original Medicare) is available everywhere in the United States. It is the way everyone used to get Medicare benefits and is the way most people get their Medicare Part A and Part B benefits now. You may go to any doctor, specialist, or hospital that accepts Medicare. The Original Medicare Plan pays its share and you pay your share. Some things are not covered under Original Medicare, like prescription drugs. ‌$ Previous Slide Information for my situation - Select your situation Medicare Extra would be financed in part by taxes on high-income individuals. One option would be a surtax on adjusted gross income—including capital gains—on very high-income individuals. CAP’s modeling will determine the exact parameters of the surtax, including the rate. In addition, under current law, large accumulations of wealth are never subject to capital gains taxes if held until death and transferred to heirs. One option would be to eliminate this stepped-up basis so that large accumulations of wealth cannot avoid capital gains tax. FRS Investment Plan Changes in Health Coverage In aggregate, this provision would result in a net savings of $13 million − ($101,721 + $547,415 + $2,152,332 + $35,183) = $13 million − $2,836,651 = $10,163,349 (or $10,000,000 if rounded to nearest million) in 2019. Medicare Demonstration Projects & Evaluation Reports News Releases› Member (v)(A) Insurance using separate deductibles for professional and institutional claims is permissible for contract years beginning on or after January 1, 2019 so long as the separate deductibles for institutional services and professional services are consistent with the table published by CMS using the methodology and assumptions in paragraphs (f)(2)(vi) and (vii) of this section. For deductible amounts not shown in the table use linear interpolation between the table values. The tables and methodology in paragraph (f)(2)(iv) of this section only address capitation arrangements in the PIP and that other stop-loss insurance needs to be used for non-capitated arrangements.
