2016 Medicare Advantage (Part C) and Part D Final Rule Issued 

MA-PD Coordination Requirements for Drugs Covered Under Parts A, B, and D – CMS acknowledges that beneficiary access to needed drugs is impeded when a Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug plan (MA-PD) does not properly adjudicate claims for drugs that may be covered under Part A or B, rather than Part D, at the point of sale (POS).  Thus, CMS is requiring MA-PDs to establish and maintain a process to ensure that appropriate payment is assigned at the POS.  If a denial under Part D is based on the existence of coverage under Parts A or B, the MA-PD plan should authorize or provide the drug under that other benefit without requiring the enrollee to make a subsequent request for coverage under that other benefit.  According to the preamble of the final rule, CMS is amending 42 CFR §422.112(b)(7) to “require MA-PDs to coordinate with their network pharmacies and prescribers to improve existing processes and develop new ones in order to ensure that enrollees receive their Medicare-covered prescription medications, without delay, when they present at the network pharmacy.”[10] While CMS did not include beneficiary advocates’ request to require plans to treat a POS claim transaction as a request for a coverage determination under Part D, this new rule should nonetheless improve coordination of and access to drug coverage for MA-PD enrollees.
