Is There a Template Available To Help Me?
Creditable Coverage Disclosure Form (source: CMS)

Entities that are required to provide a disclosure of creditable coverage status to CMS must complete the following online Disclosure to CMS Form. To further assist you in completing this form, this link on the CMS website may help: Disclosure to CMS Guidance and Instructions.

Entities that claim the RDS should not fill out this form for their RDS plan participants. If a plan option has 100 retired beneficiaries and the plan claims RDS for 97 of them, the plan must report 3 non-RDS participants on this form.
