Use: In December 2003, Congress enacted the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act of 2003 referred to as the Medicare Modernization Act (MMA). The Medicare Prescription Drug Benefit program (Part D) was established by section 101 of the MMA and is codified in section 1860D–1 through 1860 D–41 of the Social Security Act. Effective January 1, 2006, the Part D program establishes an optional prescription drug benefit for individuals who are entitled to Medicare Part A and/or enrolled in Part B. Part D plans have flexibility in terms of benefit design. This flexibility includes, but is not limited to, authority to establish a formulary that limits coverage to specific drugs within each therapeutic class of drugs, and the ability to have a cost-sharing structure other than the statutorily defined structure (subject to certain actuarial tests). Coverage under the new prescription drug benefit is provided predominately through private at-risk prescription drug plans that offer drug-only coverage (PDPs), Medicare Advantage (MA) plans that offer integrated prescription drug and health care coverage (MA–PD plans) or through Cost Plans that offer prescription drug benefits. The transmission of the data will be in an electronic format. The information users will be Pharmacy Benefit Managers (PBM), third party administrators and pharmacies and the PDPs, MA–PDs, Fallbacks and other plans that offer coverage of outpatient E:\FR\FM\21AUN1.SGM 21AUN1
