Important Reconciliation Deadline Information

A Plan Sponsor is required to complete Reconciliation or submit a final payment request for each Application for which a Plan Sponsor is seeking subsidy. The Reconciliation process must be completed using the RDS Secure Website by the Reconciliation Deadline specified in the following table.

Plan Sponsors that fail to meet the Reconciliation Deadline will not be granted any additional time to complete Reconciliation (CMS will not provide a longer time limit and no Plan Sponsor requests for Reconciliation Deadline Extensions will be considered).

For Plan Sponsors that fail to meet the Reconciliation Deadline for a given Application and have received interim payments for that Application, the sum of those payments will become overpayments and CMS will initiate immediate overpayment recovery action. Plan Sponsors that fail to meet the Reconciliation Deadline for a given Application and have not received interim payments for that Application will not be eligible for any subsidy payments for that Application. CMS' decision whether or not to afford additional time for Reconciliation or to deny a request for extension of the Reconciliation Deadline is not subject to Appeal.

Note: Once the Authorized Representative completes Reconciliation Step 12: Review and Submit Final Payment Request in the RDS Secure Website, a page displays that confirms that Reconciliation has been completed. CMS' RDS Center strongly recommends that you print that page for your records.

The following table provides Reconciliation Deadlines for Applications with RDS Plan Years which end on any day within the specified month. To use this table, look for the month in which your RDS Plan Year ends to see the corresponding Reconciliation Deadline.
