Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Extended Dobson | DaVanzo’s Contract for Part D Formulary and Benefits Assessment Project

Published Monday, August 3, 2020

In July, CMS exercised Option Period 2 to extend Dobson | DaVanzo’s contract to assist with Part D Formulary and Benefits Assessment. Under this contract, Dobson | DaVanzo and its sub-contractor, Acumen, LLC, will continue to monitor the prescription drug benefits program as offered through the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization act of 2003 (MMA). We will continue to analyze and summarize contract/plan benefit and formulary offerings, enrollment data and prescription drug event (claims) data, as well as the relationship between drug utilization and health status or other characteristics of the beneficiary or plan. These results may influence future Part D formulary and/or benefits requirements.
