Retiree Drug Subsidy

Is Retiree Drug Subsidy right for your organization?
The retiree drug subsidy (RDS) is one of several options available under Medicare that enables employers and unions to continue assisting their Medicare eligible retirees in obtaining more generous drug coverage. It is generally considered the easiest and most straightforward of the available options, and can often be implemented with little or no benefit design changes to current coverage.

We help employers/plan sponsors reduce retiree benefit costs.
We commonly work with municipalities, non-profit organizations, Taft-Hartley plans, unions, private industry, schools and universities to perform the time-consuming tasks of understanding the CMS compliance requirements qualifying our clients to receive their Retiree Drug Subsidy.

Our Subsidy Recovery Proposition:

  • We shift risk and protect against lost subsidy dollars
  • We manage all steps of the RDS process, and virtually eliminate client staff time
  • We coordinate with your vendors and CMS while assuring compliance with all CMS requirements
  • We support any RDS appeals and represent you in the event of a CMS audit

RDS cost reporting database services
We have found that many plan sponsors have vendors that will not or do not provide the CMS required cost reports that are vital to collecting your subsidy. RDS Services LLC has the ability to take “unadjusted” Rx data and create a subsidy cost report ready for submission to CMS.
