Instructions

REVISED PRRB RULES - (Revised/Effective March 1, 2013)

The Board has made revisions to the PRRB Rules (See ALERT 9 under Current Alerts).  These instructions are effective March 1, 2013 and supersede previous instructions [Issued August 21, 2008; Revised July 1, 2009].  The specific changes to the PRRB Rules have been highlighted and dated with the effective date of the change.  The Board may further revise these Rules to reflect changes in the law, regulations or the Board's policy and procedures.  

We have also updated the PRRB model forms to incorporate the changes made to the Board Rules.  We have converted the revised model forms to a fillable PDF format for ease of use. Please begin using the revised model forms as soon as possible to ensure all documentation requirements have been met.

In addition, there are supplemental instructions which set forth hearing procedures specific to End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) appeals [Issued March 15, 2001] and Children's Hospital Graduate Medical Education (CHGME) appeals [Issued May 03, 2004]. 

 

CORRESPONDENCE NOTICE

The PRRB often sends official correspondence via e-mail (including the Acknowledgment and Critical Due Dates letter, Notice of Hearing, Notice of Record Hearing, etc.).  The representative is responsible for informing the Board of changes in his or her contact information (including e-mail address), for meeting the Board’s deadlines and for timely responding to correspondence or requests from the Board or the opposing party.  Therefore, it is imperative that the Provider maintain current contact information on file with the Board.  Also please modify your spam filter to accept e-mail from the PRRB.  This will help ensure that you receive the Board's correspondence and it is not sent to an obsolete address or to your spam or junk e-mail box.  

In addition, please watch this website for Current Alerts, answers to Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs), and other notices.
