We propose that § 423.153(f)(5)(i) read as follows: Initial Notice to Beneficiary. A Part D sponsor that intends to limit the access of a potential at-risk beneficiary to coverage for frequently abused drugs under paragraph (f)(3) of this section must provide an initial written notice to the beneficiary. Paragraph (f)(5)(ii) would require that the notice use language approved by the Secretary and be in a readable and understandable form that provides the following information: (1) An explanation that the beneficiary’s current or immediately prior Part D plan sponsor has identified the beneficiary as a potential at-risk beneficiary; (2) A description of all State and Federal public health resources that are designed to address prescription drug abuse to which the beneficiary has access, including mental health and other counseling services and information on how to access such services, including any such services covered by the plan under its Medicare benefits, supplemental benefits, or Medicaid benefits (if the plan integrates coverage of Medicare and Medicaid benefits); (3) An explanation of the beneficiary’s right to a redetermination if the sponsor issues a determination that the beneficiary is an at-risk beneficiary and the standard and expedited redetermination processes described at § 423.580 et seq.; (4) A request that the beneficiary submit to the sponsor within 30 days of the date of this initial notice any information that the beneficiary believes is relevant to the sponsor’s determination, including which prescribers and pharmacies the beneficiary would prefer the sponsor to select if the sponsor implements a limitation under § 423.153(f)(3)(ii); (5) An explanation of the meaning and consequences of being identified as an at-risk beneficiary, including an explanation of the sponsor’s drug management program, the specific limitation the sponsor intends to place on the beneficiary’s access to coverage for frequently abused drugs under the program, the timeframe for the sponsor’s decision, and if applicable, any limitation on the availability of the special enrollment period described in § 423.38; (6) Clear instructions that explain how the beneficiary can contact the sponsor, including how the beneficiary may submit information to the sponsor in response to the request described in paragraph (f)(5)(ii)(C)(4); (7) Contact information for other organizations that can provide the beneficiary with assistance regarding the sponsor’s drug management program; and (8) Other content that CMS determines is necessary for the beneficiary to understand the information required in this notice.

VISION Using the wage information from the BLS for medical and health service managers (Code 11-9111), we estimate that the cost of reviewing this rule is $105.16 per hour, including overhead and fringe benefits (https://www.bls.gov/oes/2016/may/naics4_621100.htm). Assuming an average reading speed, we estimate that it would take approximately 15.6 hours for each person to review this proposed rule. For each MA plan that reviews the rule, the estimated cost is therefore, $1,640 (15.6 hours × $105.16). Therefore, we estimate that the total cost of reviewing this regulation is $767,520 ($1,640 × 468 reviewers).

Each State is then reimbursed for a share of their Medicaid expenditures from the Federal Government. This Federal Medical Assistance Percentage (FMAP) is determined each year and depends on the State’s average per capita income level. Richer states receive a smaller share than poorer states, but by law the FMAP must be between 50% and 83%.

Depression l. Measure-Level Star Ratings We do not believe our proposal in this section would impose any new burden on any stakeholder. Since Part D sponsors and their PBMs already have prescription drug pharmacy claims systems programmed to provide transition to plan enrollees in the outpatient setting, they would only have to make a technical change to these systems that consists of changing the required number of days’ supply if it is not already 30 days. In addition, Part D sponsors and their PBMs would have to cease treating these enrollees in the LTC setting separately from enrollees in the outpatient setting for purposes of transition. We also do not believe this proposal would impose any new burden on LTC facilities and the pharmacies that serve them. If finalized, we believe this regulation would eliminate the additional time that LTC facilities and pharmacies have to transition Part D patients that we now believe they do not need to effectuate the transition.

Long Term CareToggle submenu We are proposing to amend § 422.310 by adding a new paragraph (d)(5) to require that, for data described in paragraph (d)(1) as data equivalent to Medicare fee-for-service data (which is also known as MA encounter data), MA organizations must submit a National Provider Identifier in a Billing Provider field on each MA encounter data record, per CMS guidance. While the NPI is a required data element for the X12 837 5010 format (as set forth in the TR3 guides cited in the Background), CMS has not codified a regulatory requirement that MA organizations include the Billing Provider NPI in encounter data records. The proposed amendment would implement that requirement.

Linkedin Platinum BlueSM with Rx (Cost) These various systems share two defining features. First, payment of premiums through the tax system—rather than through insurance companies—guarantees universal coverage. The reason is that eligibility is automatic because individuals have already paid their premiums. Second, these systems use their leverage to constrain provider payment rates for all payers and ensure that prices for prescription drugs reflect value and innovation. This is the main reason why per capita health care spending in the United States remains double that of other developed countries.7

About Supplemental Plans View Individual and Family Plans› Given that compliance programs are very well established and have grown more sophisticated since their inception, coupled with the industry’s desire to perform well on audit, the Start Printed Page 56431CMS training requirement is not the driver of performance improvement or FDR compliance with key CMS requirements. Given this accumulated program experience and the growing sophistication of the industry’s compliance operations, as well as our continuing requirements on sponsors for oversight and monitoring of FDRs, we are proposing to delete not just the regulatory provision requiring acceptance of CMS’ training as meeting the compliance training requirements, but also the reference to FDRs in the compliance training requirements codified at §§ 422.503(b)(4)(vi)(C) and 423.504(b)(4)(vi)(C). Specifically, we propose to remove the phrases in paragraphs (C)(1) and (C)(2) that refer to first tier, downstream and related entities and remove the paragraphs specific to FDR training at §§ 422.503(b)(4)(vi)(C)(2) and (3) and 423.504(b)(4)(vi)(C)(3) and (4); we are also proposing technical revisions to restructure § 422.503(b)(4)(vi)(C)(1) into two paragraphs and ensure that the remaining text is grammatically correct and consistent with Office of the Federal Register style. Compliance training would still be required of MA and Part D sponsors, their employees, chief executives or senior administrators, managers, and governing body members. This change will allow sponsoring organizations, and the FDRs with which they contract, the maximum flexibility in developing and meeting training requirements associated with effective compliance programs. We invite comments concerning this proposal and suggestions on other options we can implement to accomplish the desired outcome.

This provision would result in a total savings of $19,305 to the federal government. The driver of the savings is the removal of burden for federal employees to review Quality Improvement Project (QIP) attestations. MA organizations are required to annually attest that they have an ongoing QIP in progress and the Central Office reviews these attestation submissions. To estimate amounts, we considered how many QIP attestations are performed annually.
