Important: Medicare Compliance Program Requirements Due by December 31, 2020

All contracted providers participating in our Medicare Advantage (MA), Prescription Drug Plans (MAPD & PDP), Medicare-Medicaid (MMPs) and/or Dual Special Needs Plans (DSNPs) are required to attest to meeting the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) compliance program requirements for first-tier, downstream and related (FDR) entities and if contracted for DSNP, the MOC training.

For dually contracted MA and DSNP providers, we’ve combined the DSNP MOC and FDR attestations so that you need to complete only one.

Part D prescriber enrollment requirement

Any health care professional who prescribes drugs to patients with Part D plans must now enroll in the Medicare program or opt out. If you do not enroll or opt out, Medicare Part D may no longer cover these drugs as of February 1, 2017. Please try to enroll or opt out by November 1, 2016. This will allow time for application processing and ensure that patients get their prescriptions without disruption.

Supplemental retiree medical coverage

The Aetna Supplemental Retiree Medical Plan is a fully insured, non-network-based commercial retiree group health product. In all states but Florida and Minnesota, it is offered as a supplementary medical plan, not a Medicare plan. In Florida and Minnesota, it is approved as a group Medicare Supplement product.

This coverage is offered only to retirees and their eligible dependents who are enrolled in Medicare.
