While HPMS plan users are automatically subscribed to the HPMS list serv, prospective plan applicants and other interested parties without access to the system may request to join the listserv’s supplemental mailing list to stay abreast of the agency’s communications on the Medicare Advantage (MA) and Part D programs.
To facilitate this process, CMS has implemented an online form that can be used to join one or more HPMS listservs, modify your current listserv access, or delete your current listserv access.
CMS makes additions and modifications to the HPMS listserv on a weekly basis.
CMS is also publishing HPMS memos on the CMS public website on a weekly basis. The HPMS-Memos-Archive may be found in the related links section below.
