CMS Releases CY 2020 MA and Part D Flexibility Final Rule

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) finalized policies that will increase plan choices and benefits. This includes allowing Medicare Advantage (MA) plans to include additional telehealth benefits, improving MA and Part D Star Ratings, and improving the quality of care for beneficiaries who participate in Dual Eligible Special Needs Plans.

This builds on the 2020 Rate Announcement and Final Call Letter that was released last week.

The fact sheet is available here, and the final rule can be downloaded from the Federal Register.
