Welcome to Part D Advisors.

Part D Advisors (PDA) is the nation’s most experienced Retiree Drug Subsidy (RDS) administrator for both the ongoing and reopening processes and the only vendor providing AICPA SOC certified RDS support services. Since our founding in 2005, we have processed more than 1,800 RDS applications for more than 300 plan sponsors who have collected over $1,300,000,000 in Retiree Drug Subsidies. The Retiree Drug Subsidy program (also known as Medicare Part D or Medicare Part D Subsidy) can be incredibly complex and time consuming for some plan sponsors to manage. However, as the RDS industry’s innovator and leader, PDA handles every aspect of both ongoing and reopening RDS processes to help plan sponsors meet all RDS requirements and maximize their subsidy potential. Our unique approach and proprietary tools reduces effort for plan sponsors and their consultants’ allowing them to focus on other areas of their business.

Beware misleading marketing campaign

It has come to our attention that many plan sponsors participating in the Retiree Drug Subsidy (RDS) program may have recently received information (by mail and by phone) from another firm regarding the RDS reopening appeals process. The information being mailed is misleading, inaccurate, and potentially dangerous for RDS plan sponsors. The communications have, in some cases, been mistaken to represent CMS and imply mandatory obligations from the group. Two examples of these letters that were sent to Part D Advisors from a concerned third party can be found below. They have been redacted to protect the client’s privacy and have been edited for accuracy to demonstrate just how misleading they truly are.
