-- Educate pharmacy organizations about new policies intended to increase protections for dual eligibles who are not automatically enrolled in a plan and, therefore, are unable to obtain medications.

"We're anxious to see CMS successfully implement the changes outlined in the agreement," said Gill Deford, Director of Litigation at the Center for Medicare Advocacy. "CMS has taken the first step by agreeing to do more on behalf of low-income recipients. We look forward to working with agency staff to ensure that these improvements are integrated into its standard business practices."

The settlement agreement does not prevent individual class beneficiaries from filing separate claims for individual benefits. Under the terms of the agreement, the court will retain jurisdiction over implementation of the agreement for up to three years, during which time the plaintiffs will monitor CMS activities to ensure the remedies are fully realized. The agreement must be approved by the presiding judge in the case, the Honorable Thelton E. Henderson, in order to take effect.

Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati joined the plaintiff team in June 2007. Pro bono counsel from the firm played an integral role in developing the final settlement agreement.

For further information on Medicare Part D or for a copy of the settlement agreement, see http://www.nsclc.org or http://www.medicareadvocacy.org/settlementagreement.pdf. Information about the pro bono activities of Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati can be found at http://www.wsgr.com/probono.
