As Medicare Open Enrollment approaches, people with Medicare can help protect themselves and the Medicare program from health care fraud
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) today released the Final Enrollment Report for the 2018 Health Insurance Exchanges showing approximately 11.8 million consumers selected or were automatically re-enrolled in an Exchange plan in the 50 states, plus DC.
This report summarizes enrollment activity in the individual Exchanges during the Open Enrollment Period for the 2018 plan year (2018 OEP) for all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
Today, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) finalized polices for Medicare health and drug plans for 2019 that will save Medicare beneficiaries money on prescription drugs while offering additional plan choices.
On April 2, 2018, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a final rule that updates Medicare Advantage (MA) and the prescription drug benefit program (Part D) by promoting innovation and empowering MA and Part D sponsors with new tools to improve quality of care and provide more plan choices for MA and Part D enrollees.
CMS is committed to unleashing and strengthening the Medicare Advantage and Part D programs by giving Medicare beneficiaries flexibility so that they can make informed healthcare choices.
Today, The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) that would provide state flexibility from certain regulatory access to care requirements within the Medicaid program. Specifically, the NPRM would exempt states from requirements to analyze certain data and monitor access when the vast majority of their covered lives receive services through managed care plans. CMS regulations separately provide for access requirements in managed care programs. Additionally, the NPRM would provide similar flexibility to all states when they make nominal rate reductions to fee-for-service payment rates.
