Medicare Part D: Opportunities Exist for Improving Information Sent to Enrollees and Scheduling the Annual Election Period
Kathleen King (au)
In Medicare Part D, enrollees in stand-alone prescription drug plans (PDPs) are allowed to switch plans during an annual coordinated election period (AEP) from Nov. 15 to Dec. 31, with new coverage effective Jan. 1. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) required that plan sponsors send an Annual Notice of Change (ANOC) -- using either its model or a non-model format -- before the 2008 AEP. This report examined: (1) stakeholders' views of the model ANOC and CMS's efforts to assure its effectiveness; and (2) how the scheduling of the AEP affects the enrollment process for beneficiaries switching PDPs. Among the largest PDP sponsors, GAO selected 8 to interview along with other stakeholders involved in the AEP. Illustrations.
