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 reviewed more than 2,000 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.

Updates to Misleading Marketing Campaign Released

Plan sponsors participating in the Retiree Drug Subsidy (RDS) program may recall be inundated with marketing information regarding the RDS appeals process from another firm in 2017. The information was inaccurate, misleading and potentially dangerous as they were written in a manner that allowed the reader to easily mistake the author to be some kind of authorized representative for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), which they are not. The letters also implied some kind of mandatory obligation from the plan sponsor that could result in severe financial penalties if no actions were taken. Many of Part D Advisors’ clients were recipients of these letters and sent them to us out of an abundance of caution for their plan. Redacted copies of those letters as well as Part D Advisors’ response can be found here.

Today, it has come to our attention that the same RDS firm has once again sent out letters of a similar nature to RDS participants. Although this new letter no longer alleges an obligation by plan sponsors to take action or face penalties, they are still making claim that they are “the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services Retiree Drug Subsidy program authorized administrator and submitter of choice”, which is a distinction that does not exist in the program. Additionally, their claims of a “known variable” and “inherent flaws” in the RDS program leading to underpayments for plan sponsors is just not true. The only way to know for certain if a plan sponsor is eligible for additional subsidy from the RDS program is to have a qualified and knowledgeable RDS administration firm collect and analyze historical RDS filings and claims data. Anything else is a guess, plain and simple.

Plan sponsors or their agents/consults are encouraged ro reach to Part D Advisors directly with any questions they may have about the letter. In the mean time, the new letter can be found below along with our response to its content.
