ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: This final rule will revise the current limitations prohibiting an endorsed drug card sponsor from marketing its Part D plans to its drug card enrollees. This revised rule will give the current drug card sponsors the ability to market to their enrollees Part D plans that are either offered by the same endorsed drug card sponsor or an affiliated organization of the same endorsed drug card sponsor. We are making these changes after considering the public comments received regarding the need to ensure a smooth transition from the drug card to the Medicare Prescription Drug Benefit.

I. Background The Medicare drug discount card program was established by section 101, subpart 4, of the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act of 2003 and is codified in section 1860D–31 of the Social Security Act (the ‘‘Act’’). On December 15, 2003, in accordance with section 105(c)(1)(C) of the Act, we published the interim final rule with comment period (hereafter referred to as ‘‘interim final rule’’) for the Medicare drug discount card program on December 15, 2003 (68 FR 69840). The interim final rule at § 403.813(a) addresses marketing limitations applicable to endorsed discount card sponsors in accordance with section 1860D–31(h)(7)(B) of the Act. Under these marketing limitations, an endorsed sponsor may only market those products and services offered under its endorsed program that are inside the scope of endorsement and permitted under the HIPAA Privacy Rule. After considering the public comments on these issues we agree with the commenters that this policy does not comply with the intent of the Medicare Modernization Act which directs the Secretary to facilitate efficient enrollment into Part D plans. This final rule allows an endorsed card sponsor to market information to its Medicare drug card enrollees concerning its Part D plans offered by the endorsed card sponsor or an affiliated organization. This change will increase Medicare beneficiaries’ awareness and knowledge of Part D plans, thereby facilitating a smooth transition from the Medicare Prescription Drug Discount Card Program to the Medicare Prescription Drug Benefit. Requirements for Issuance of Regulations Section 902 of the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act of 2003 (MMA) amended section 1871(a) of the Act and requires, in part, that the Secretary, in consultation with the Director of the Office of Management and Budget establish and publish timelines for the publication of Medicare final regulations based on the previous E:\FR\FM\01SER1.SGM 01SER1
