The following is a memo directly from ASR which explains a Medicare Secondary Payor reporting issue they are currently experiencing and what is being done to resolve it.
ASR sent a file to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) in February identifying persons with active coverage, as required by the Medicare Secondary Payer reporting mandate. On account of a software error, this file incorrectly included not only active employees but also Medicare primary retirees. The error has been identified by our software partner, and together we are working on a solution.
Today, ASR is sending to CMS a file that will reverse the erroneous information. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide an exact date on which CMS will load that file; CMS has confirmed only that it could take one to two weeks.
