CMS expands appeals settlement options to reduce backlog


CMS announced a limited low-volume appeals (LVA) settlement option for certain Medicare Part A and B appeals pending with the Office of Medicare Hearing and Appeals and Appeals Council.  Eligible providers are those with fewer than 500 pending appeals that have billed amounts of $9,000 or less per appeal. CMS would settle eligible appeals at 62% of the net approved amount. To begin the process, providers must complete and submit an expression of interest form by June 8. Visit CMS’ LVA webpage for more information.
