- Coordination of Benefits (COB) / True Out of Pocket (TrOOP) Attestation
Note: On June 14, 2006, CMS requested all Part D sponsors complete an attestation regarding compliance with our coordination of benefits requirements - including the tracking of "true out-of-pocket" (TrOOP expenditures). The email address listed in the memo was not valid. Consequently, CMS did NOT receive any attestations sent to that address.
CMS is requesting that Part D sponsors resubmit their electronically signed attestation to PartDBenefitImpl@cms.hhs.gov by 5pm EDT July 20, 2006.
We recognize that this was our error and apologize for the inconvenience of submitting your COB/TrOOP attestation a second time.
If you have any questions or need additional information, please feel to contact your account manager.
Original Message: Please see the attached memo from Cynthia Tudor, Acting Director, Medicare Drug Benefit Group, regarding compliance with our coordination of benefits requirements - including the tracking of "true out-of-pocket" (TrOOP expenditures) - as issued in the 2006 Coordination of Benefits Guidance and other related operational guidance documents. All Part D sponsors must submit an electronically signed attestation per the instructions below to PartDBenefitImpl@cms.hhs.gov (corrected 7.13.06) by 5pm EDT June 28, 2006. Thank you.
