HMA Analysis of Medicare Advantage Advance Notice and Part C/D Proposed Rule
February 18, 2020 1 p.m to 2 p.m EST — On February 6, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued Part II of the Advance Notice of Methodological Changes for Calendar Year (CY) 2021 which includes proposed updates to Medicare Advantage (MA) payment rates. In a departure from previous years, the agency did not release a separate Call Letter which typically includes Part C and Part D policy guidance and bidding instructions. Instead, the agency released a proposed rule which includes proposed policy and technical changes, most of which are scheduled to go into effect in the 2022 plan year. CMS also issued separate bidding instructions for plans as they prepare their bids for CY2021.
During this webinar, HMA Managing Principal Jonathan Blum will be joined by Principal Eric Hammelman, Principal Julie Faulhaber, and Senior Consultant Narda Ipakchi to present an overview of the payment rate updates and proposed policy changes included in the Advance Notice and Proposed Rule. They weill provide interested stakeholders with an overview and analysis of the proposed changes as well as what these changes mean for Medicare Advantage plans’ existing strategies and opportunities.
