2011 Reassignment of Low-Income Subsidy Beneficiaries in PDPs
Michael Crochunis, Acting Director
Medicare Enrollment and Appeals Group, CMS
In early October, CMS will conduct reassignment of certain beneficiaries eligible for the Part D low-income subsidy (LIS). CMS will carry out all reassignments, including those to a different plan benefit package (PBP) offered by the same organization and the random reassignment to plans offered by different sponsors. As in the past, CMS will not reassign individuals who either no longer qualify for LIS, or who have chosen a plan on their own. These individuals will remain in their current plans unless they make an affirmative enrollment choice.
