CMS' RDS Center is changing the location to which Retiree and Cost Report files are sent via Connect:Direct. By the end of 2018, all files that are currently sent to the RDS Center via Connect:Direct must be sent to the new location. This change only impacts Vendors that submit data to the RDS Center via Connect:Direct and does not affect Vendors that submit data using the RDS Secure Website.
More information, including technical specifications for the new location, will be communicated in the coming months. CMS' RDS Center will be working with each Vendor that submits cost and/or retiree data via Connect:Direct to establish a new location for sending files.
Vendors are encouraged to monitor the RDS Program Website for additional details as they become available. Follow-up email communications will also be sent.
If you need more information, contact CMS' RDS Center.
