Thursday, October 2, 2014, Washington, DC. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released a request for information to innovate Medicare Prescription Drug Plans (PDP), Medicare Advantage (MA) and Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug Plans (MA-PD), Medicaid managed care plans (Medicaid plans), Medigap plans, and Retiree Supplemental health plans. Specifically, CMS requests information on innovations in:
● Plan design, including but not limited to value-based insurance design
● Care delivery;
● Beneficiary and provider incentives and engagement;
● Network design.
This request coincides with the recent introduction of bipartisan, bicameral legislation to authorize a V-BID demonstration project in Medicare Advantage.
