Published: 
May 2020

On May 22, 2020, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued the Contract Year (CY) 2021 Medicare Advantage and Part D Final Rule (CMS-4190-F1) that finalizes a subset of the proposals from the February 18, 2020 proposed rule (85 FR 9002). This first final rule implements certain changes before the CY 2021 bid deadline (due by statute on the first Monday in June) stemming from the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 (BBA of 2018) and the 21st Century Cures Act. CMS plans to finalize the remaining proposals in a subsequent second final rule. The Contract Year 2021 Medicare Advantage and Part D Final Rule includes multiple provisions that may be of interest to state Medicaid officials, which are highlighted in this e-alert.
