June 2011 News and Events Heart Healthy WHO IS COVERED—THE COMPOSITION OF THE RISK POOL. Pooling risks allows the costs of the less healthy to be subsidized by the healthy. In general, the larger the risk pool, the more predictable and stable premiums can be. But the composition of the risk pool is also important. Although the Affordable Care Act (ACA) now prohibits insurers from charging different premiums to individuals based on their health status, premium levels reflect the health status of the risk pool as a whole. If a risk pool disproportionately attracts those with higher expected claims, premiums will be higher on average. If a risk pool disproportionately avoids those with higher expected claims or can offset the costs of those with higher claims by enrolling a large share of lower-cost individuals, premiums will be lower. Is Your Medicare Cost Plan Ending? Some stakeholders commented that sponsors should be allowed to expedite the second notice in cases of egregious and potentially dangerous overutilization or in cases involving an active criminal investigation when allowed by a court. However, given the importance of a beneficiary having advance notice of a pending limit on his or her access to coverage for frequently abused drugs and sufficient time to respond and/or prepare, we believe exceptions to the timing of the notices should be very narrow. Therefore, we have only included a proposal for an exception to shorten the 30 day timeframe between the initial and second notice that is based on a beneficiary's status as an at-risk beneficiary in an immediately preceding plan. We note that is a status the drug management provisions of CARA explicitly requires to be shared with the next plan sponsor, if a beneficiary changes plans, which means there would be a concrete data point for this proposed exception to the timing of the notices. We discuss such sharing of information later in the preamble.

In paragraph (c)(5)(i), we propose that a Part D plan sponsor must reject, or must require its pharmacy benefit manager (PBM) to reject, a pharmacy claim for a Part D drug unless the claim contains the active and valid National Provider Identifier (NPI) of the prescriber who prescribed the drug. This requirement is consistent with existing policy. Maryland Baltimore $314 $443 41% $456 $622 36% $449 $606 35% General provisions. End Coverage 40 2 Under the current regulation, an MA organization that operates a PIP must provide stop-loss protection for 90 percenter of actual costs of referral services that exceed the per patient deductible limit to all physicians and physician groups at financial risk under the PIP. The stop-loss protection may be per patient or aggregate. The current regulation contains a chart that identifies per-patient stop-loss deductible limits for single combined; separate institutional; and separate professional insurance. The current regulation establishes requirements for stop-loss attachment points (deductibles) based on the patient panel size and does not distinguish between at-risk or non-at-risk patients in that panel. There is no requirement for an MA organization to provide stop-loss protection when the physician or physician group has a panel of risk patients of more than 25,000; we are not proposing to change to this requirement. In recent years, CMS has received a number of requests to update the stop-loss insurance limits associated with PIP arrangements to better account for medical costs and utilization changes that have occurred since the final rule was published in the June 29, 2000 Federal Register (65 FR 40325) on. Premium changes are often the most visible and discussed aspect with respect to the ACA impact on health insurance. However, premium changes can be measured using different approaches, making it difficult to compare premium changes among health insurers, among plans offered by an insurer, or among consumers.

If a potential at-risk beneficiary or at-risk beneficiary does not submit pharmacy or prescriber preferences, section 1860-D-4(c)(5)(D)(i) of the Act provides that the Part D sponsor shall make the selection. Section 1860-D-4(c)(5)(D)(ii) of the Act further provides that, in making the selection, the sponsor shall ensure that the beneficiary continues to have reasonable access to frequently abused drugs, taking into account geographic location, beneficiary preference, impact on cost-sharing, and reasonable travel time. We propose two changes to the disclosure requirements. First, we propose to revise §§ 422.111(a)(3) and 423.128(a)(3) to require MA plans and Part D Sponsors to provide the information in paragraph (b) of the respective regulations by the first day of the annual enrollment period, rather than 15 days before. In addition, we propose to modify the sentence in § 422.111(h)(2)(ii) which states that posting the EOC, Summary of Benefits, and provider network information on the plan's Web site does not relieve the plan of responsibility to provide hard copies to enrollees. We propose to revise the sentence slightly and add “upon request” to the existing regulatory language to make it clear when any document that is required to be delivered under paragraph (a) in a manner that includes provision of a hard copy upon request, posting the document on the Web site (whether that document is the EOC, SB, directory information or other materials) does not relieve the MA organizations of a responsibility to deliver hard copies upon request. We intend these proposals to provide CMS with the flexibility to permit delivery other than through mailing hard copies (which is the requirement today for all materials and information covered by § 422.111(a)), including through electronic delivery or posting on the Web site in conjunction with delivery of a hard copy notice describing how the information and materials are available. We believe this proposal will ultimately provide additional flexibility to plans to take advantage of technological developments and reduce the amount of mail enrollees receive from plans.
