Treatment of Follow-On Biological Products as Generics for Non-LIS Catastrophic and LIS Cost Sharing (c) Election by default: Initial coverage election period—(1) Basic rule. Subject to paragraph (c)(2) of this section, an individual who fails to make an election during the initial coverage election period is deemed to have elected original Medicare. In section II.A.8. of this rule we propose to revise § 422.66 and 422.68 by: Codifying the requirements for default enrollment that are currently set out in subregulatory guidance,[60] Start Printed Page 56469revising current practice to limit the use of this type of enrollment mechanism, and clarifying the effective date for ICEP elections. This would provide an MA organization the option to enroll its Medicaid managed care enrollees who are newly eligible for Medicare into an integrated D-SNP administered by the same MA organization that operates the Medicaid managed care plan. While our proposal restricts its use to individuals in the organization's Medicaid managed care plan that can be enrolled into an integrated D-SNP, the estimated burden for an organization that desires to use default enrollment and obtain CMS approval would not change. For those MA organizations that want to use this enrollment mechanism and request and obtain CMS approval, the administrative requirements would remain unchanged from the current practice. Enrollment requirements and burden are currently approved by OMB under control number 0938-0753 (CMS-R-267). Since this proposed rule would not impose any new or revised requirements/burden, we are not making any changes to that control number.

Furthermore, we have expressed concern that Part D sponsors may be restricting MTM eligibility criteria to limit the number of qualified enrollees, and we believe that explicitly including MTM program expenditures in the MLR numerator as QIA-related expenditures could provide an incentive to reduce any such restrictions. This is particularly important in providing individualized disease management in conjunction with the ongoing opioid Start Printed Page 56459crisis evolving within the Medicare population. We hope that, by removing any restrictions or uncertainty about whether compliant MTM programs will qualify for inclusion in the MLR numerator as QIA, the proposed changes will encourage Part D sponsors to strengthen their MTM programs by implementing innovative strategies for this potentially vulnerable population. We believe that beneficiaries with higher rates of medication adherence have better health outcomes, and that medication adherence can also produce medical spending offsets, which could lead to government and taxpayer savings in the trust fund, as well as beneficiary savings in the form of reduced premiums. We solicit comment on these proposed changes.

Paragraph (b)(1) states that the PACE organization must contract only with an entity that meets all applicable Federal and State requirements, including, but not limited to, those listed in paragraphs (b)(1)(i) through (iv).

We note that we are not proposing to prohibit individuals and entities on the preclusion list from furnishing services Start Printed Page 56451and items to PACE participants; we are merely proposing to prohibit payment for such services and items if provided by an individual or entity on the preclusion list.
