Re: Step Therapy for Part B Drugs in Medicare Advantage

Dear Administrator Brooks-LaSure,

The undersigned organizations, representing millions of Medicare beneficiaries with life-threatening, complex, chronic conditions and/or the physicians who care for them, are asking the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to ensure that beneficiaries enrolled in Medicare Advantage plans continue to have appropriate and timely access to the therapies they need to properly manage their conditions. We are asking that the agency move swiftly to reinstate the step therapy prohibition in Medicare Advantage (MA) plans for Part B drugs as described in the September 17, 2012, HPMS memo Prohibition on Imposing Mandatory Step Therapy for Access to Part B Drugs and Services.
