At this time, the feature to delete an application is not available. CMS' RDS Center will eventually delete abandoned applications from the RDS Secure Website; however, until that time, CMS' RDS Center recommends that Plan Sponsors determine which of the following scenarios apply to their application and follow the provided suggestion.
It is imperative that Plan Sponsors who submitted an application, a Valid Initial Retiree List, and received a Retiree Response File from CMS' RDS Center, but have not and will not submit a subsidy Payment Request, send a Monthly Retiree List with a delete transaction for all the retirees associated with that application. This ensures that each retiree's Subsidy Period is deleted in the Medicare Beneficiary Database (MBD). Once the retiree list is sent with the delete transactions for all the associated retirees, the Plan Sponsor may abandon the application. Contact CMS' RDS Center to notify them that no subsidy payment will be requested. Currently, the CMS' RDS Center updates the application status to Withdrawn.
Plan Sponsors who had their Authorized Representative submit an application, but never successfully submitted a retiree list resulting in a retiree count greater than zero may abandon the application. Contact CMS' RDS Center to notify them that no subsidy payment will be requested.
Plan Sponsors who started an application, but never had their Authorized Representative submit it to CMS' RDS Center may abandon the application. Contact CMS' RDS Center to notify them that no subsidy payment will be requested.
Plan Sponsors should remit payment to CMS' RDS Center immediately upon withdrawing. This is considered an overpayment, meaning monies are owed to CMS' RDS Center, and CMS initiates proceedings to recover the funds.
