  1. As discussed in section of this rule, proposed § 423.153(f) would implement provisions of section 704 of CARA, which allows Part D plan sponsors to establish a drug management program that includes “lock-in” as a tool to manage an at-risk beneficiary’s access to coverage of frequently abused drugs. Part D plan sponsors would be required to notify at-risk beneficiaries about their plan’s drug management program. Part D plan sponsors are already expected to send a notice to some beneficiaries when the sponsor decides to implement a beneficiary-specific POS claim edit for opioids (OMB under control number 0938-0964 (CMS-10141)). However, the OMB control number 0938-0964 only accounts for the notices that are currently sent to beneficiaries who have a POS edit put in place to monitor opioid access (which would count as the initial notice described in the preamble and defined in § 423.153(f)(4)) and would not capture the second notice that at-risk beneficiaries would receive confirming their determination as such or the alternate second notice that potentially at-risk beneficiaries would receive to inform them that they were not determined to be at risk.
    Employers would have the option to sponsor Medicare Extra and employees would have the option to choose Medicare Extra over their employer coverage. Medicare Extra would strengthen, streamline, and integrate Medicaid coverage with guaranteed quality into a national program.

    Also, we note that despite sponsors’ additional identification of some beneficiaries currently, in practice, we have found that CMS identifies the vast majority of beneficiaries who are reviewed by Part D sponsors through OMS. CMS identifies over 80 percent of the cases reviewed through OMS, and about 20 percent are identified by sponsors based on their internal criteria. We understand that most of the beneficiaries representing the 20 percent were reported to OMS due to the sponsors averaging the MME calculations across all opioid prescriptions, which has subsequently been changed in the 2018 OMS criteria. The 2018 OMS criteria also have a lower MME threshold and account for additional beneficiaries who receive their opioids from many prescribers regardless of the number of pharmacies, which will result in the identification of more beneficiaries through OMS. Thus, our proposal would not substantially change the current practice. Furthermore, in approximately 39 percent of current OMS cases, sponsors respond that the case does not meet the sponsor’s internal criteria for review.[15] We found that the original OMS criteria generated false positives that some sponsors’ internal criteria did not because these sponsors used a shorter look back period or were able to group prescribers within the same practice or chain pharmacies. These best practices have also been incorporated into the revised 2018 OMS criteria, which are the basis of the proposed 2019 clinical guidelines. Thus, while our proposal will prevent sponsors from voluntarily reviewing more potential at-risk beneficiaries than CMS identifies through OMS, it will likely require sponsors to review more beneficiaries than they currently do.

    31.  Enrollment requirements and burden are currently approved by OMB under control number 0938-0753 (CMS-R-267). Since this rule would not impose any new or revised requirements/burden, we are not making any changes to that control number.

    In addition to requiring the direct notice to affected enrollees discussed previously, proposed § 423.120(b)(iv)(D) would also require Part D sponsors to provide the following entities with Start Printed Page 56416notice of the generic substitutions consistent with § 423.120(b)(5)(ii): CMS, State Pharmaceutical Assistance Programs (as defined in § 423.454), entities providing other prescription drug coverage (as described in § 423.464(f)(1)), authorized prescribers, network pharmacies, and pharmacists. (To avoid repetition, we propose to revise the provision to refer to all of these entities as “CMS and other specified entities” for the purposes of § 423.120(b).) Even though, as proposed, a Part D sponsor that met all of the requirements would be able to make the generic substitution immediately without submitting any formulary change requests to CMS, the Part D sponsor must include the generic substitution in the next available formulary submission to CMS. We note that Part D plans can determine the most effective means to communicate formulary change information to State Pharmaceutical Assistance Programs, entities providing other prescription drug coverage, authorized prescribers, network pharmacies, and pharmacists and that, under our proposed provision, we would consider online posting sufficient for those purposes.
