The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has indicated that all Medicare Part D enrollees residing in long term care facilities must be made aware of their rights under Medicare Part D. CMS announced that beginning with the 2012 plan year, a pharmacy notice must be provided to Part D enrollees when a prescription cannot be covered ("filled") under the Medicare Part D benefit at the point-of-sale (POS). When an enrollee is informed a drug is not on the formulary or is subject to prior authorization, step therapy or other limitations, the enrollee has certain rights concerning those determinations. CMS is requiring pharmacies to print, at point of sale, a standard form notice detailing the Part D beneficiaries appeal rights when a claim is denied.
Roosevelt Care Center has established a link to the Medscape website so residents and families can access drug information. You can look up the medications prescribed for you or your loved one. The information can help you understand the indications and contra indications of the drugs. This link is presented as an adjunct to the education already being provided by our staff at Roosevelt.
