CMS Proposes Medicare Advantage and Part D Payment and Policy Updates

Posted on Sunday, February 3, 2019 5:42 PM

This week, CMS announced proposed changes that will continue to incite competition between MA plans and Part D.  These changes will increase plan choices and benefits while also addressing the opioid crisis.

“CMS is committed to modernizing Medicare and our top priority is to ensure that seniors have more choices and affordable options in receiving their Medicare benefits,” said CMS Administrator Seema Verma. “Medicare Advantage enrollment is at an all-time high as more and more seniors are choosing to enroll in private Medicare health and drug plans, and we need to maximize competition by providing plans the flexibility to meet patients’ needs.”

The newly proposed changes will help older adults and the chronically ill pick plans that are more closely catered to their health needs, according to CMS.
