RFI Commenters Envision More Plan Flexibility, Improved Transparency in MA
After giving stakeholders a month to formulate their thoughts on how best to address a variety of aspects of the Medicare Advantage program, CMS received nearly 4,000 comments on its request for information (RFI). An AIS Health review of select letters reveals comments on a multitude of hot-button topics including beneficiary decision-making, marketing practices and plan oversight, and MA reimbursement.
CMS published the MA-focused RFI on Aug. 1 and asked for input by Aug. 31. The sprawling request asked commenters to consider dozens of questions on key topics such as health equity, risk adjustment, social determinants of health (SDOH), supplemental benefits and value-based care.
