Each year, employers whose health plans include prescription drug coverage must disclose to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) whether that coverage is creditable. Employers must complete an online disclosure with CMS within 60 days after the beginning of the plan year, or March 1, 2016, for calendar year plans. The below compliance bulletin summarizes the Medicare Part D disclosure requirement with CMS.

Included in the attached is the CMS’ Creditable Coverage website, which includes links to the online disclosure form and related instructions.
