ACS CAN Comments re: draft 2019 Medicare Parts C & D Call Letter

March 5, 2018

ACS CAN filed comments in response to Medicare’s draft Call Letter (sub-regulatory guidance to Medicare Advantage and Part D Plans). Our comments urged CMS to encourage Medicare Advantage plans to waive beneficiary coinsurance responsibility in instances where a polyp is removed during a screening colonoscopy. We also filed comments regarding CMS’ proposals to restrict opioids.
