Relevant to: All Part D Plan Sponsors, including PACE Organizations
On April 29, 2022, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (“CMS”) released the memo “Guidance for the Part D Payment Reconciliation Reopening for Calendar Year 2017,” which announced a global reopening of the 2017 Part D payment reconciliation. Since this is a global reopening, all Part D sponsors that were active in 2017 (including PACE organizations) must sign the Attestation of Data Relating to CMS Payment to a Medicare Part D Sponsor. The attestation will be available through the Health Plan Management System (“HPMS”) on November 1, 2022. Part D sponsors must electronically sign the attestation in HPMS by noon ET, November 8, 2022.
