The US Medicare program provides health care coverage to over 50 million enrolled individuals age 65 and over, persons with disabilities, and those with end-stage renal disease. The program is complex, with different rules applying to Medicare fee-for-service coverage and the Medicare managed care and Part D prescription drug programs. Medicare is substantially impacted by the Affordable Care Act, as changes in the law effect industry participants through significant modifications in reimbursement and other program rules and encourage providers, health plans and others to gravitate towards new delivery models aimed at cost savings and collaboration.
Dentons lawyers and professionals have vast experience counseling hospitals, health systems, large physician practices, health plans, pharmacy chains, pharmacy benefit managers, drug manufacturers and others concerning Medicare program rules. We provide a full range of services to our clients, including regulatory and fraud and abuse counseling, compliance assistance, defense against CMS enforcement actions or litigation (including false claims act cases), and assistance in understanding innovative new programs affecting Medicare beneficiaries, including the capitated financial alignment demonstration program. Our lawyers and professionals have extensive contacts with regulators at the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, the agency that oversees this vast program, with many having previously served at senior levels within government.
When Medicare issues require a clear understanding of the complex legal requirements that apply to the provision of covered health care services to Medicare beneficiaries, Dentons can efficiently provide clear and knowledgeable guidance.

According to CMS, one of the primary purposes of the proposed rule is to “align the rules governing Medicaid managed care with those of other major sources of coverage, including coverage through Qualified Health Plans and Medicare Advantage plans […].” This advisory, the fifth and final in our series, will examine CMS’ actions towards this stated purpose.
On June 1, 2015, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (“CMS”) published its proposed rule on Medicaid managed care (CMS-2390-P). As noted in our two earlier advisories, which provided an overview of the proposed rule and discussed the expanded federal role in rate setting, the proposed rule represents the first update to Medicaid managed care regulations since 2002, and offers revisions that are intended to better align the Medicaid program and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (“CHIP”) with other health care coverage sources, including Qualified Health Plans (“QHPs”) under the Health Insurance Exchange marketplace and the Medicare Advantage program ("MA").
On May 13, 2013, the US Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (“CMS”) released its proposed rule (“Proposed Rule”) to implement Section 2551 of the Affordable Care Act, which requires annual aggregate reductions in state Medicaid disproportionate share hospital (“DSH”) allotments from FY 2014 through FY 2020.
