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 [12] 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.[9] 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.

  1. Outcome and Intermediate Outcome Outcome measures reflect improvements in a beneficiary’s health and are central to assessing quality of care. Intermediate outcome measures reflect actions taken which can assist in improving a beneficiary’s health status. Controlling Blood Pressure is an example of an intermediate outcome measure where the related outcome of interest would be better health status for beneficiaries with hypertension 3
    Finally, there are aspects of the notice requirements related to the CMS initiated nonrenewal authority that are useful in the administration of the Part C and D programs and which we propose preserving in the revised termination provision. Specifically, § 422.506(b)(2)(ii) requires notice to be provided by mail to a contracting organization’s enrollees at least 90 days prior to the effective date of the nonrenewal, while § 422.510(b)(1)(ii) requires affected plan enrollees to be notified within 30 days of the effective date of the termination. We see a continuing benefit to the administration of the Part C and D programs in retaining the authority to ensure that, when possible, enrollees can be made aware of their plan’s discontinuation at least by October 1 of a given year so that they can make the necessary plan choice Start Printed Page 56467during the annual election period. Therefore, we propose adding provisions at §§ 422.510(b)(2)(v) and 423.509(b)(2)(v) to require that enrollees receive notice no later than 90 days prior to the December 31 effective date of a contract termination when we make such determination on or before August 1 of the same year.

    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.

    Currently, MA organizations, including PSOs, with an approved minimum enrollment waiver for their first contract year have the option to resubmit the waiver request for CMS in the second and third year of the contract. In conjunction with the waiver request, the MA organization must continue to demonstrate the organization’s ability to operate and demonstrate that it has and uses an effective marketing and enrollment system, despite continued failure to meet the minimum enrollment requirement. In addition, the current regulation limits our authority to grant the waiver in the third year to situations where the MA organization has at least attained a projected number of enrollees in the second year. Since 2012, we have not received any waiver to the minimum enrollment requirement during the second and third year of the contract. Rather, we only received minimum enrollment waiver requests through the initial application process.

    Plan-Level Average: We are considering requiring that average rebate amounts be calculated separately for each plan (that is, calculated at the plan-benefit-package level). In other words, the same average rebate amount would not apply to the point-of-sale price for a covered drug across all plans under one contract, nor across all contracts under one sponsor. We believe this approach would result in the calculation of more accurate average rebates because the PDE and rebate data that are submitted by sponsors demonstrate that gross drug costs and rebate levels are not the same across all plans under one contract, nor across all contracts under one sponsor. This approach would also largely be consistent with how sponsors develop cost estimates for their Part D bids because benefit designs, including formulary structure, and assumptions about enrollee characteristics and utilization vary by plan, even for multiple plans under one contract. Similarly, final payments are calculated by CMS at the plan level, based on the data submitted by the sponsor. We solicit comment on whether the most appropriate approach for calculating the average rebate amount for point-of-sale application would be to do so at the plan level, using plan-specific information, given that moving a portion of manufacturer rebates to the point of sale would impact plan liability and payments, or if another approach would be more appropriate.
