Part D Sponsors Reporting of Direct and Indirect Remunerations
Medicare calculates certain payments to sponsors on the basis of amounts actually paid by the Part D sponsors, net of direct and indirect remuneration (DIR). (42 CFR pt. 423, subpart G.) DIR includes all rebates, subsidies, and other price concessions from sources (including, but not limited to, manufacturers and pharmacies) that decrease the costs incurred by Part D sponsors for Part D drugs. CMS requires that Part D sponsors submit DIR reports for use in the payment reconciliation process. We will determine whether Part D sponsors complied with Medicare requirements for reporting DIR.
