Medicare Part D – CMS Notification Reminder

Employers sponsoring a group health plan (whether insured or self-insured) need to report information on the creditable (or non-creditable) status of the plan’s prescription drug coverage to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). In order to provide this information, employers must access CMS’s online reporting system at:

As a reminder, notice must be provided by the following deadlines:
• Within 60 days after the beginning date of each plan year;
• Within 30 days after the termination of the prescription drug plan; and

For example, an employer with a calendar year plan (January 1 – December 31, 2024) must complete this reporting no later than Wednesday, February 29, 2024.
