On April 5, 2010, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a notice to Aetna Insurance Company of its intent to impose an intermediate sanction to ensure that Medicare beneficiaries continue to have access to prescription drugs under Medicare’s requirements.
The intermediate sanction, which will prevent Aetna from marketing to and enrolling new beneficiaries, will be effective April 21. It will remain in effect until Aetna demonstrates to CMS that it has corrected its deficiencies and they are not likely to recur. Medicare’s actions should not impact the approximately one million enrollees in the Aetna plans across the country.
