§ 423.760 Determinations regarding the amount of civil money penalties and assessment imposed by CMS.
(a) Determining the appropriate amount of any penalty. In determining the amount of penalty imposed under 423.752(c)(1), CMS will consider as appropriate:
(1) The nature of the conduct;
(2) The degree of culpability of the Part D sponsor;
(3) The harm which resulted or could have resulted from the conduct of the Part D sponsor;
(4) The financial condition of the Part D sponsor;
(5) The history of prior offenses by the Part D sponsor or principals of the Part D sponsor; and,
(6) Such other matters as justice may require.
(b) Amount of penalty. CMS may impose civil money penalties in the following amounts:
(1) If the deficiency on which the determination is based has directly adversely affected (or has the substantial likelihood of adversely affecting) one or more Part D enrollees—up to $25,000 for each determination.
(2) If the deficiency on which the determination is based has directly adversely affected (or has the substantial likelihood of adversely affecting) one or more Part D enrollees, CMS may calculate a CMP of up to $25,000 for each Part D enrollee directly adversely affected (or with a substantial likelihood of being adversely affected) by a deficiency .
(3) For each week that a deficiency remains uncorrected after the week in which the Part D sponsor receives CMS' notice of the determination—up to $10,000.
(4) If CMS makes a determination that a Part D sponsor has terminated its contract other than in a manner described under 423.510 and that the Part D sponsor has therefore failed to substantially carry out the terms of the contract, $250 per Medicare enrollee from the terminated Part D sponsor or plans at the time the Part D sponsor terminated its contract, or $100,000, whichever is greater.
