Medicare Part D Overview
Until the Medicare Part D benefit was implemented in 2006, Medicare beneficiaries had access to a limited number of prescription drugs through the Medicare Part B benefit. With Medicare Part D, all Medicare beneficiaries have access to the Medicare drug benefit through private plans approved by CMS. The drug benefit is offered through stand-alone prescription drug plans (PDPs) and Medicare Advantage prescription drug (MA-PD) plans. Part D is a market model, transferring risk to private plan sponsors, which then act as the insurers for Part D benefits.
Identifying Medicare Part D Fraud with MEDICs
Through Medicare Drug Integrity Contractors, or “MEDICs,” CMS developed a strategy to investigate and recommend prosecution for Part D fraud and abuse. MEDICs’ responsibilities include, but are not limited to:
- Fulfilling requests for information from law enforcement agencies
- Investigating potential Part D fraud and abuse
- Referring cases and making immediate advisements regarding potential Part C and Part D fraud and abuse to the Office of Inspector General (OIG)
- Recommending appropriate administrative actions to CMS
- Identifying program vulnerabilities
- Auditing the fraud waste and abuse programs that are part of plan sponsors’ compliance plans.
