Dear Acting Administrator Slavitt,

We are writing regarding the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Advanced Notice on February 19, related to proposed changes affecting the Medicare Advantage (MA) and Part D programs payments and policies for CY 2017. As always, we reiterate the importance of policies that both preserve beneficiary choice and ensure that seniors’ access to coordinated care remains strong.
