  1. A two-year limitation on submitting a new bid in an area where MA plans were terminated due to low enrollment.
  2. Requirements that MA plans and PDPs demonstrate they provide “good quality health care” by scoring 3 or higher on several CMS performance standards.
  3. CMS’ ability to terminate MA plans offering Part D plans (MA-PD) for achieving less than 3 stars on both Parts C and D summary Star ratings in the same contract year for 3 consecutive years.
  4. Flexibility that would have allowed MA plans to separate their Evidence of Coverage document from the Annual Notice of Change (ANOC).
  5. Medication Therapy Management Program requirement to develop an outreach strategy to “effectively engage all at-risk beneficiaries enrolled in the plan.”
  6. Authority for CMS to passively enroll members in a non-renewing D-SNP to another D-SNP that is affiliated with the member’s Medicaid plan.
  7. Requirements that PDP sponsors of Employer Group Waiver Plans (EGWPs) disclose to each employer group the discount payments under the Discount Program.
