About BlueCross Lastly, Medicare Extra would be financed in part through public health excise taxes. The federal excise tax on cigarettes would be increased by 50 cents per pack and adjusted for inflation. A tax could also be imposed on sugared drinks equal to 1 cent per ounce. These taxes would reduce health care spending, helping to offset the cost of Medicare Extra.
Rated 5 out of 5 stars by CMS 26 Coinsurance: Third, government or professional guidelines support determining that opioids are frequently abused or misused. Consistent with current policy, we propose to designate all opioids as frequently abused drugs except buprenorphine for medication-assisted treatment (MAT) and injectables. The CDC MME Conversion Factor file  does not include all formulations of buprenorphine for MAT so that access is not limited, and injectables are not included due to low claim volume. Therefore, CMS cannot determine the MME. CMS will consider revisions to the CDC MME Conversion Factor file when updating the list of opioids designated as frequently abused drugs in future guidance.

First, the Secretary determines opioids are frequently abused or diverted, because they are controlled substances, and drugs and other substances that are considered controlled substances under the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) are so considered precisely because they have abuse potential. The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) divides controlled substances into five schedules based on whether they have a currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States, their relative abuse potential, and their likelihood of causing dependence when abused. Most prescription opioids are Schedule II, where the DEA places substances with a high potential for abuse with use potentially leading to severe psychological or physical dependence. A few opioids are Schedule III or IV, where the DEA places substances that have a potential for abuse.

Privacy Forms We propose that if a sponsor does not implement the limitation on the potential at-risk beneficiary’s access to coverage of frequently abused drugs it described in the initial notice, then the sponsor would be required to provide the beneficiary with an alternate second notice. Although not explicitly required by the statute, we believe this notice is consistent with the intent of the statute and is necessary to avoid beneficiary confusion and minimize unnecessary appeals. We propose generally that in such an alternate notice, the sponsor must notify the beneficiary that the sponsor no longer considers the beneficiary to be a potential at-risk beneficiary upon making such determination; will not place the beneficiary in its drug management program; will not limit the beneficiary’s access to coverage for frequently abused drugs; and if applicable, that the SEP limitation no longer applies.

Skip to Main Content Area We propose to provide Part D sponsors with more flexibility to implement generic substitutions as follows: The proposed provisions would permit Part D sponsors meeting all requirements to immediately remove brand name drugs (or to make changes in their preferred or tiered cost-sharing status), when those Part D sponsors replace the brand name drugs with (or add to their formularies) therapeutically equivalent newly approved generics—rather than having to wait until the direct notice and formulary change request requirements have been met. The proposed provisions would also allow sponsors to make those specified generic substitutions at any time of the year rather than waiting for them to take effect 2 months after the start of the plan year. Related proposals would require advance general and retrospective direct notice to enrollees and notice to entities; clarify online notice requirements; except specified generic substitutions from our transition policy; and conform our definition of “affected enrollees.” Lastly, to address stakeholder requests for greater flexibility to make midyear formulary changes in general, we are also proposing to decrease the days of enrollee notice and refill required when (aside from generic substitution and drugs deemed unsafe or withdrawn from the market) drug removal or changes in cost-sharing will affect enrollees.
