- Full Report:
GAO reviewed the Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services' (CMS) new rule on monthly actuarial rates, premium rates, and the annual deductible for calendar year 2007. GAO found that (1) the rule announces the monthly actuarial rated for aged and disabled enrollees for the Part B account in the Medicare Supplementary Insurance trust fund for January 2007, and it also announces the monthly Part B premium to be paid by the enrollees; and (2) CMS complied with applicable requirements in promulgating the rule.
