“For those of you who are trying to maneuver the RDS and ERRP process, let
Part D Advisors show you the way. Before Part D Advisors, it was like trying to
find your way on a dark road at night with no head lights. Once we turned the
process over to Part D Advisors, it was as if the lights were turned on to show
you the way step by step. Pan-American Life has been a client of Part D
Advisors since 2006 and they continue to show us the way by providing
excellent knowledge and service.”

— Margo Cooper, Senior Benefits Specialist Analyst at
Pan-American Life Insurance Group



“We have found working with Part D Advisors to be both efficient and pleasant. You are very organized and knowledgeable regarding the programs you administer.”

— Karen Cimafranca,
Director of Benefit Plans at American Axle and Manufacturing


New York

“We’re always asking our benefits consultants what we can do better. One of their recommendations was to hire Part D Advisors to take a look at our past RDS filings. If they didn’t find anything, it wasn’t going to cost us anything. So we had nothing to lose! Part D Advisors made the process easy and seamless, kept us well informed along the way and best of all, they found money for us!

— Norm Freimark, Executive Director of the State Wide Schools Cooperative Health Plan (SWSCHP)

“Part D Advisors gave us some indication of how much in additional rebates we might realize based on the experience of similar funds. After we retained them, they were actually able to recover significantly more than they conservatively estimated. We would not have had those additional [$1.3 million] dollars if we didn’t reopen our RDS applications. It’s a ‘no-brainer’! Part D Advisors is paid on a percentage of savings. So if they don’t find any additional subsidies, it doesn’t cost the fund anything. It’s really a win-win situation.”

— Matt Erieg, Assistant Fund Manager/Chief Operating Officer at
IUOE Local 12

“We just didn’t think there was going to be enough of a return for what would have been considerable internal effort [but PDA found almost $8.5 million dollars] so as good as you think you might be, there are probably areas that you could be stronger and the expertise that Part D Advisors and their systems brings to the table will probably benefit you. My advice is it’s worth looking at RDS.”

— Rob Kukla, Director of Benefit Contracts at the
Employees Retirement System of Texas (ERS)

Cattaraugus Allegany BOCES

“The first year that Part D Advisors took over RDS services for us, our annual subsidy increased by more than $23,000, a 27% improvement in only one year! Since then, even with a shrinking RDS population, the school system still receives an average of nearly $700 per retiree back in subsidy each year, which is money we rely on to keep our health plan in good standing for our members. We know PDA’s one of a kind system and experienced team is the reason those subsidy dollars are maximized.”

— Tom Potter, BOCES Controller, Cattaraugus Allegany BOCES

Washtenaw County Road Commission

“Our selection of Part D Advisors Inc. to handle the administration of our federal subsidy programs was one of the best decisions we’ve made as an organization! Their ability to monitor and communicate any changes involving these programs is second to none. We realized early on that we lacked the resources to meet the daily demands of the various federal subsidy programs. Part D Advisors Inc. has allowed us to maximize the funds we’ve received from these programs by keeping us at the top of the list among organizations that qualify for these funds. They also have assisted us with collecting additional funds from previously submitted claims! Pricing wise, they are fair and provide significant value. I urge all organizations to consider partnering with Part D. Advisors Inc. to maximize the return on investment from federal subsidy programs!”

— Daniel D. Ackerman, Finance Director for the Washtenaw County Road Commission
