Are you aware of recent regulatory changes to the Medicare claims appeal process? During this call, CMS and the Office of Medicare Hearings and Appeals (OMHA) discuss the HHS Medicare Appeals Final Rule, published on January 17, 2017. Learn about changes intended to streamline the administrative appeal processes, reduce the backlog of pending appeals, and increase consistency in decision making across appeal levels. For an overview of the Final Rule, see the HHS fact sheet.

Did you know that certain appeals pending at OMHA may be eligible for more efficient adjudication through statistical sampling? Learn about the expansion of this program based on feedback from the pilot phase and how your participation may advance the adjudication of your appeals.

A question and answer session follows the presentation.

Target Audience: All Medicare Fee-For-Service providers.
