The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released a draft rule to make sweeping changes to the Medicare Part D program in 2015. These proposed changes would have a critical impact on AMCP members, their organizations and their patient populations.
CMS’s next step is to receive and review comments from the public before issuing a final rule later in 2014. AMCP must take action to ensure that provisions harmful to managed care pharmacy are not enacted.
Comments on the proposed rule are due by March 7, 2014. AMCP has prepared an extensive summary of the proposed changes, which is available on the AMCP website. (Source: AMCP, 1/13/14).
