Earlier this year the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services proposed major changes to the Medicare Advantage (MA) and Medicare prescription drug programs. In March, CMS Administrator Tavenner informed Congress that CMS would not move forward with several provisions of the proposed rule governing Medicare Part D. On May 19, CMS finalized several provisions related to consumer protections, antifraud provisions, and transparency.
In April, CMS issued the 2015 rate announcement and final call letter for the MA and Part D programs.  CMS said rates for MA will rise by 0.4 percent in 2015, rather than drop by 1.9 percent as estimated in an advance notice in February. 
Please join us to hear the latest on both the Medicare Advantage and Medicare prescription drug programs.
