Announcement of the 2019 MCMG
To ensure we’re doing our part to keep everyone out of hot water and help provide valuable information to our agents, please see the below information regarding the Medicare Communications and Marketing Guidelines (MCMG) dated July 20, 2018.
CMS provided an overhaul of existing guidance, the Medicare Marketing Guidelines (MMG) and have replaced them with the MCMG.
The MCMG interprets and provides guidance on the marketing and communications rules for Medicare Advantage (MA-only, MA-PD) plans, Medicare Prescription Drug Plans (PDP), and except where otherwise specified, Section 1876 cost plans and employer/union-sponsored group MA or Part D plans. These plans are governed under Title 42 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR.), Parts 422, 423, and 417.
