Reminder to Mainframe Users: Electronic Transmittal Form Requirements

Reminder: Plan Sponsors and Vendors that submit retiree lists and cost reports through Mainframe are no longer required to complete a new Electronic Transmittal Form (ETF) for each new RDS application. A new ETF is only required if the location where data is sent or received changes.

CMS' RDS Center believes this enhancement improves the efficiency in which Plan Sponsors and Vendors transmit and receive files through Mainframe while also reducing the amount of paperwork.

If you need more information, contact CMS' RDS Center.
