On May 8, 2008, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued proposed regulations intended to enhance protections for beneficiaries who are enrolled in Medicare Advantage (MA) organizations (MAOs) and Medicare prescription drug plans (Part D plans). According to CMS's press release, its actions "will strengthen marketing standards and extend additional protections to all beneficiaries including those receiving the low-income subsidy (LIS) and beneficiaries enrolled in special needs plans." The proposed rule also covers a wide range of other provisions of interest to various Part D stakeholders. A copy of the proposed regulation, which is scheduled for publication in the May 16 Federal Register, is available on CMS' website. Comments must be submitted to CMS by July 15, 2008.
