Gearon, Contributing Editor What the University Pays Teaching Resources This analysis looks at preliminary lowest-cost bronze, second lowest-cost silver, and lowest-cost gold premiums in the 50 states and the District of Columbia. (Our analyses from 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, and 2014 examined changes in premiums and participation in these states and major cities since the exchange markets opened nearly four years ago.) The second lowest-cost silver plan serves as the benchmark for premium tax credits (which subsidize premiums for low and modest income exchange enrollees) and is the only plan that offers reduced cost sharing for lower-income enrollees. About 63% of marketplace enrollees are in silver plans this year, and 29% are enrolled in bronze plans. Humana in your community More...

In new § 423.120(c)(6)(vi), we propose that CMS has the discretion not to include a particular individual on (or, if warranted, remove the individual from) the preclusion list should it determine that exceptional circumstances exist regarding beneficiary access to prescriptions. In making a determination as to whether such circumstances exist, CMS would take into account—(1) the degree to which beneficiary access to Part D drugs would be impaired; and (2) any other evidence that CMS deems relevant to its determination.

Specifically, we are proposing that the Medicare MLR reporting requirements would be limited to the following data fields, as shown in Table 12: Organization name, contract number, adjusted MLR (which would be populated as “Not Applicable” or “N/A” for non-credible contracts as determined in accordance with §§ 422.2440(d) and 423.2440(d)), and remittance amount. We solicit comment on these proposed changes.

The statute imposes several levels of sanctions for failure to meet the 85 percent minimum MLR requirement, including remittance of funds to CMS, a prohibition on enrolling new members, and ultimately contract termination. The minimum MLR requirement in section 1857(e)(4) of the Act creates incentives for MA organizations and Part D sponsors to reduce administrative costs, such as marketing costs, profits, and other uses of the funds earned by plan sponsors, and helps to ensure that taxpayers and enrolled beneficiaries receive value from Medicare health and drug plans.
