Part D Provisions in Medicare Bill


The Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act, 2008 (the Act), enacted by Congress on July 15, 2008 contains several provisions that impact Part D. We have advised under separate newsletter as to the electronic prescription provisions, and we are separately providing a more detailed assessment of those provisions. This newsletter reviews the key other Part D provisions included in the Act. All provisions are effective for benefit years beginning on or after January 1, 2010, unless otherwise specified. All references to Part D plans include both stand alone plans and those offered through Medicare Advantage organizations.

See full newsletter for more information.
