CMS New Policy Changes Announced in May 2010 Memo
CMS’ new policy memorandum addresses the separate issues of (a) off label and/or unlabeled outpatient drug uses and (b) rated ages in relation to the agency’s Workers’ Compensation Medicare Set-Aside (MSA) program.
Through the May Memo, CMS sets forth new guidelines regarding when off label and/or unlabeled drugs are covered by Medicare Part D and, thus, includable as part of a workers’ compensation MSA proposal. In addition, CMS has rescinded its previous rated age policy and announced that the MSA submitter will now need to include very specific rated age “certification statement."
