Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and implementing regulations at 42 CFR, Medicare Advantage (MA) organizations and Prescription Drug Plan (PDP) sponsors are required to submit annual medical loss ratio (MLR) reports (at the contract level) to the Secretary of HHS concerning the amount spent on claims, quality improvement expenses, non-claims costs, Federal and State taxes, licensing and regulatory fees, and revenue. Plan sponsors must provide a remittance to the Secretary if the amount spent in a reporting year on certain costs compared to its revenue (excluding Federal and States taxes and licensing and regulatory fees) is below a certain ratio, referred to as the medical loss ratio (MLR). MA organizations and Part D sponsors are required to report their MLR to CMS, and are subject to financial and other penalties for a failure to meet a statutory requirement that they have an MLR of at least 85 percent. The Affordable Care Act requires several levels of sanctions for failure to meet the 85 percent minimum MLR requirement, including remittance of funds to CMS, a prohibition on enrolling new members, and ultimately contract termination. Plan sponsors will use the MLR Reporting Tool to provide contract-level MLR information to CMS. The information provided in this MLR Report is the basis for computing the contract's MLR percentage and remittance amount, if any, for a contract year.
