The model materials include multiple finalized regulations and considerable edits related to the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) Cost Sharing Maximum Reports for Part D Sponsors (e.g., insulin coverage). Otherwise, most changes are for clarification, grammar, and formatting edits. Plans are encouraged to review the updated models and HPMS memo for specifics.
As a reminder, keep an eye out for additional corrections typically released in July!
