CMS Announcement: Disenrollment from Medicare Advantage and Prescription Drug Plans of Medicare Enrollees Who Are Incarcerated or Not Lawfully Present in the United States

A left arrow

On, November 2, 2021, CMS issued a memorandum to Medicare Advantage and Prescription Drug Plans to provide information about enrollment and disenrollment for individuals who are incarcerated or not lawfully present in the United States. On June 26, 2022, CMS plans to disenroll individuals in accordance with eligibility requirements codified in 42 CFR §§ 417.422, 422.50,and 423.30.

States will see these changes in the CMS MMA or TBQ response file they receive after that date. States that have programs to align Medicaid with Medicare plan enrollment for dually eligible individuals may want to review CMS data for Medicare plan disenrollment, and going forward, for Medicare eligibility status on incarceration and lawful presence. Key fields within the CMS response file include:

Release of CY2016 MMLEADS Data

A left arrow

The updated Medicare-Medicaid Linked Enrollee Analytic Data Source (MMLEADS), using 2016 data, is available in the Chronic Condition Warehouse (CCW).

MMLEADS is an individual-level dataset that integrates Medicare and Medicaid data on enrollment, eligibility, service utilization, and expenditures. All MMLEADS files in the updated version are person-level summary files. Further information on MMLEADS is available at https://resdac.org/cms-data/files/mmleads-3 and updated data documentation is available at the below links.

MMLEADS data files will remain available for calendar years (CYs) 2006-2012. As a result of the change in file structure and states transitioning from MSIS to T-MSIS over time, MMLEADS data are not available for 2013-2015. CMS intends to continue updates and further enhancements to MMLEADS as data become available for subsequent years. The 2016 MMLEADS Public Use File (PUF) will be made available on the CMS website at a future date.

Announcing CMS FY2022 IPPS/LTCH PPS proposed rule (CMS-1752-P); Medicaid Provider Enrollment and Medicare Cost-sharing for Dually Eligible Beneficiaries

A left arrow

On April 27, 2021, CMS issued the FY2022 IPPS/LTCH PPS proposed rule (CMS-1752-P). I am writing to flag for you one proposal that aims to improve state processing of Medicare cost sharing claims for services provided to dually eligible individuals. Specifically, this proposal would require state Medicaid agencies to allow enrollment of all Medicare-enrolled providers and suppliers for purposes of processing claims for Medicare cost sharing on services for dually eligible individuals. If finalized, this proposal will improve compliance with current statute and reduce burden for providers related to crossover claims submission and the claiming of Medicare bad debt.

Additionally, we are requesting information from stakeholders on instances where states determine their cost-sharing liability for a Medicare service by applying the Medicaid payment and coverage rules for the service as if the service (rather than the cost-sharing) were being paid by Medicaid.

The NPRM is available at https://www.federalregister.gov/public-inspection/2021-08888/medicare-program-hospital-inpatient-prospective-payment-systems-for-acute-care-hospitals-and-the. For the provision specific to dually eligible individuals, please see Section X (“Medicaid Enrollment of Medicare Providers and Suppliers for Purposes of Processing Claims for Cost-Sharing for Services Furnished to Dually Eligible Beneficiaries”) and proposed changes to regulatory text in 42 CFR 455.10. As always, we encourage you to review closely and comment. The comment period closes on June 28, 2021.

Highlighting Available Medicare Claims Data for COVID-19 Vaccination Coordination

A left arrow

To identify via Medicare claims data those dually eligible individuals with COVID-19 vaccination billed to Medicare within your state, please use the following steps.

For enhanced Coordination of Benefits Agreement (eCOBA) file:

Please use the above HCPCS codes to identify the COVID-19 vaccine claims within your eCOBA file (Medicaid COBA ID range 79000-7999; Medicaid MCO COBA ID range 77000-78999).

  1. Run a query on your eCOBA file using the HCPCS codes found in the table below.
  2. After you have identified the individuals who have the above HCPCS codes associated with their records, usethe MBI number associated with the record within your eCOBA file to identify the beneficiary.
  3. As you have identified the claims for dually eligible individuals associated with a vaccine that requires two doses, you can flag their MBI to ensure you capture the claim for the second dose administration.
  4. We recommend performing additional data analysis to link the COVID-19 vaccination claims demographic data to assess health disparities, such as by race/ethnicity, disability status, or geography.

For Monthly Part A and B data set:

  1. Identify your Medicare Part B Carrier Claim File. Specifically, you will need the Carrier Line Data.
  2. Run a query on your Carrier Line Data Set on the HCPCS codes found in the table below.
  3. After you have identified the individuals who have the above HCPCS codes associated with their records, use one of the crosswalk files provided to you with your monthly Part A and B data (BENE_ID to MBI, BENE_ID to SSN, BENE_ID to HICN) to identify the beneficiary.
  4. As you have identified the claims for dually eligible individuals associated with a vaccine that requires two doses, you can flag their BENE_ID to ensure you capture the claim for the second dose administration.
  5. We recommend performing additional data analysis to link the COVID-19 vaccination claims demographic data to assess health disparities, such as by race/ethnicity, disability status, or geography.

CMS Informational Bulletin and Tip Sheet for OTP Providers on Part B MedicareOpioid Treatment Program (OTP) Benefit for Dually Eligible Individuals

A left arrow

On Tuesday, December 17, 2019, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued an informational bulletin to provide guidance to state Medicaid agencies regarding coverage changes for dually eligible beneficiaries receiving opioid treatment services. Starting on Wednesday, January 1, 2020, Medicare will begin paying for opioid treatment programs (OTPs) through bundled payments for opioid use disorder (OUD) treatment services, including medication-assisted treatment (MAT) medications, toxicology testing, and counseling. In order to be paid by Medicare, OTP providers will need to be enrolled as a Medicare provider. In an effort to prevent any disruption in OTP treatment for dually eligible beneficiaries, CMS is providing background information on provider enrollment and clarifying options for states on coordination of benefits/third party liability under Medicaid as outlined at https://www.medicaid.gov/federal-policy-guidance/downloads/cib121719.pdf.

Additionally, on Thursday, December 12, 2019, CMS released a tip sheet for Opioid Treatment Program (OTP) Providers Serving Dually Eligible Individuals: State Coverage of the Medicare Part B Deductible, which can be viewed at https://www.cms.gov/files/document/otp-crossover-tip-sheet.

Resources on Opioid Use Disorder Among Dual Eligible Beneficiaries

A left arrow

Beneficiaries dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid Services may be particularly vulnerable to opioid addiction or misuse. In an October 2016 memo, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS) estimated that these beneficiaries have significantly higher rates of co-occurring substance use disorders and chronic pain relative to Medicare-only beneficiaries or Medicaid-only adults with disabilities. Following are two new resources on opioid use disorder among dually eligible individuals:

Data Brief on National Trends in High-Dose Chronic Opioid UtilizationAmong Dually Eligible and Medicare-Only Beneficiaries (2006-2015)

This data brief provides a baseline understanding of high-dose chronic (HDC) prescription opioid use among dually eligible beneficiaries over the 10-year period from 2006 to 2015. The brief underscores that dually eligible individuals receive prescription opioids at higher rates than those with Medicare-only and that these differences are driven mainly by disability. For example, in 2015, while 10.4% of dually eligible and 4.9% of Medicare-only opioid-using beneficiaries were prescribed opioids at the high dose chronic level. Among those qualifying for Medicare by disability, these rates were 13.4% and 14.7%, respectively. This data brief is available on our MMCO analytics webpage at https://www.cms.gov/Medicare-Medicaid-Coordination/Medicare-and-Medicaid-Coordination/Medicare-Medicaid-Coordination-Office/Analytics.html.

New Opioid Use Indicators in the Chronic Conditions Warehouse

CMS has created four new Chronic Conditions Data Warehouse (CCW) indicators to promote research on opioid use disorder (OUD).

  1. An overarching indicator of OUD.
  2. Diagnosis and procedure-code basesfor OUD.
  3. Opioid-related hospitalizations or emergency department visits.
  4. Use of medication-assisted treatment (MAT).

The new indicators use algorithms by developed by experts and vetted during a public comment period. As with all other CCW indicators, the OUD-related indicators facilitate research as well as promote measurement quality and consistency. More information can be found at https://www.ccwdata.org/web/guest/condition-categories.

MAPD Help Desk: Update - Incarceration and Not Lawfully Present

A left arrow

On August 12, 2022, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) distributed a Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug (MAPD) Help Desk email advising if a beneficiary states they have been incorrectly disenrolled due to Incarceration or Not Lawfully present status, the Plan should refer the beneficiary to the Social Security Administration (SSA) to correct the information in their systems. If the Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug System (MARx) shows that the beneficiary has an open-ended period of Incarceration, an open-ended period of Not Lawfully Present period, or the dates are incorrect, the beneficiary must contact SSA. Plans should only contact the MAPD Help Desk if SSA indicates that the data has already been corrected, MARx has the correct dates on file, or if there is an end date and the Plan is not able to reinstate the beneficiary. All other inquiries to the MAPD Help Desk will be provided a response to contact SSA.

CMS has been receiving several tickets regarding Plans seeing disenrollment actions for periods prior to January 1, 2019. When this change was implemented on June 26, 2022, CMS communicated that periods prior to January 1, 2019, would not be affected. An email communication about this issue was sent stating CMS identified some periods prior to January 1, 2019, that were processed and has corrected most of these enrollments. However, for periods sent after June 26, 2022, if SSA does send CMS a period of Incarceration or Not Lawfully Present that is prior to January 1, 2019, MARx will take the appropriate disenrollment action.

CMS also wants Plans to know that SSA only sends CMS Incarceration data once a month. Any recent changes by SSA will require a month for CMS to receive the changes; however, CMS receives Not Lawfully Present data daily. Plans should check on beneficiaries with a Not Lawful status frequently to see if they are eligible to be re-enrolled.

MMA Response File Processing Delays

A left arrow

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS) provides updates to Medicaid agencies when there will be delays in the processing of the MMA Response File. The best way to ensure your Medicaid agency is receiving the state/territory file suspension notices is to ensure that the appropriate staff have a state/territory role in the CMS Identity Management System (IDM) with a current email address.

To add a state/territory role in IDM, refer to the instructions in the MAPD State User Guide (SUG), Section 2 [“Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug User Interface (MARx UI) System)” Sub-section 2.1.1 [“Register in IDM”].

The attached image provides an example of what your Medicaid agency can expect to see in the State/Territory File Processing Suspension notification emails.

MMA Notifications from CMS

A left arrow

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS) provides multiple notifications to ensure your Medicaid agency is kept up to date on the status of your MMA file submissions.

CMS sends notifications like the one attached to your Medicaid agency each time an MMA Request file is submitted. These notifications provide important information regarding the status of the submitted request file.

If you are not receiving these notifications, please submit a ticket to the MAPD Help Desk at 1-800-927-8069 or MAPDHelp@cms.hhs.gov. In that ticket, please include:

  • The Medicaid agency email address
  • That you are requesting that the ticket is assigned to the MBD Application Support team
  • That you would like to be added to the MMA file Medicaid agency notification list

We strongly suggest that the Medicaid agency consider creating a shared email address mailbox versus individual staff emails (e.g.,  MMAteam-recipient@statename.gov) to receive the notifications.

The attached image is an example of what your Medicaid agency can expect to see in the notification emails.
