Prescription Drugs for Medicare Beneficiaries

The purpose of this memorandum is to clarify guidance provided in the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS’) April 3, 2009 and July 1, 2009 procedure memoranda regarding prescription drugs administered to Medicare beneficiaries for off-label and/or unlabeled outpatient uses and whether these drugs are considered covered by Medicare Part D and, therefore, appropriately included in a Medicare Workers’ Compensation Set-aside Agreement (WCMSA) proposal. Also, this memorandum changes the Rated Age (RA) language to be included in WCMSAs, as detailed in the August 25, 2008 procedure memorandum.
