Video Library Affordable Rental Housing The savings in premium between using § 422.208(f)(iii) to calculate deductibles (combined attachment point) and using Table A to calculate deductibles is $2000 − $1500 = $500 PMPY. We assume that the average loading for profit and administrative costs is roughly 20 percent. So our PMPY savings is 20 percent × 500 = $100 PMPY. The remaining $500 − $100 = $400 in savings is on net benefits. That reduction does not produce any savings since the plans and physicians are simply trading claims for premiums.
We also seek stakeholder comment on what, if any, special considerations should be taken into account in the design of a point-of-sale rebate policy, for Part D employer group waiver plans (EGWPs). We are also interested in feedback on what particular effects requiring Part D sponsors to apply some manufacturer rebates at the point of sale would have on the EGWP market, as well as on how such a requirement might impact the retiree drug subsidy program.

You’ll generally also be automatically enrolled in Medicare Part A and Part B if you’re receiving disability benefits from Social Security or the Railroad Retirement Board for at least two years; if you qualify for Medicare because of disability, you’ll be automatically enrolled in Medicare in the 25th month of disability benefits. If you get Medicare because you have amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease), you’ll be automatically enrolled in Medicare in the first month that your disability benefits starts; you don’t need to wait two years in this case.

The Original Medicare Plan (Part A and Part B) Who We Are Operating Status: First, in paragraphs (c)(1) of each section, we propose the overall formula for calculating the summary ratings for Part C and Part D. Under current policy, the summary rating for an MA-only contract is calculated using a weighted mean of the Part C measure-level Star Ratings with up to two adjustments: The reward factor (if applicable) and the categorical adjustment index (CAI); similarly, the current summary rating for a PDP contract is calculated using a weighted mean of the Part D measure-level Star Ratings with up to two adjustments: The reward factor (if applicable) and the CAI. We propose in §§ 422.166(c)(1) and 423.186(c)(1) that the Part C and Part D summary ratings would be calculated as the weighted mean of the measure-level Star Ratings with an adjustment to reward consistently high performance (reward factor) and the application of the CAI, pursuant to paragraph (f) (where we propose the specifics for these adjustments) for Parts C and D, respectively.

on average up to $541* Special enrollment period (SEP): This is for you if you delayed Medicare enrollment after 65 because you had health insurance from an employer for whom you or your spouse was still actively working. The SEP allows you to sign up for Medicare without risking late penalties at any time before this employment ends and for up to eight months afterward. (However, a small employer with fewer than 20 workers can legally require you to sign up for Medicare at age 65 as a condition for continuing to cover you under the employer health plan — in which case, Medicare becomes your primary insurance and the employer plan is secondary. But this decision is up to the employer, so you need to check it out before you turn 65.)

Employers would need to contribute at least 70 percent of the Medicare Extra premium. Under this option, employers would automatically enroll all employees into Medicare Extra. The Medicare Extra cost-sharing structure would apply and employees would pay the Medicare Extra income-based premium for their share of the premium. The tax benefit for employer-sponsored insurance would not apply to premium contributions under this option.
Typically, you should not turn down Part B unless you have insurance based on your or your spouse’s current work (job-based insurance). If you do not have job-based insurance and you turn down Part B, you may incur a premium penalty if you need to sign up for Medicare coverage in the future. Also, if your job-based insurance will pay secondary after you become eligible for Medicare, you should consider enrolling in Medicare in order to have primary coverage and pay less for your care.

§ 423.2260 Collection Agencies As previously stated, because of the broad regulatory definition of marketing, the term marketing and communication became synonymous. With the proposed updates to Subpart V in both part 422 and part 423, a definition of the broader term communication would be added and the definition of marketing, as well as the materials that fall within the scope of that definition, would be narrowed. As a result, a number of technical changes will be needed to update certain sections of the regulation that use the term marketing. Accordingly, we propose the following technical changes in Part C:

We estimate a total annual burden for all MA organizations resulting from this proposed provision to be 111,600 hours (46,500 hour + 9,300 hour + 9,300 hour + 46,500 hour) at a cost of $6,103,218 ($3,212,220 + $642,444 + $642,444 + $1,606,110). Per organization, we estimate an annual burden of 238 hours (111,600 hour/468 MA organizations) at a cost of $13,041 ($6,103,218/468 organizations). For beneficiaries we estimate a total annual burden of 279,000 hours at a cost of $2,022,750 and a per beneficiary burden of 30 minutes at $3.63.
