As part of the broader HHS commitment to improving the Medicare appeals process, CMS made available the Low Volume Appeals (LVA) settlement option on February 5, 2018. LVA is for providers and suppliers (appellants) with fewer than 500 appeals pending at the Office of Medicare Hearings and Appeals (OMHA) and the Medicare Appeals Council (the Council) at the Departmental Appeals Board.
During this call, learn more about LVA, the current status, and how the settlement process works. CMS speakers discuss how to identify whether you are eligible and which of your pending appeals may be settled. Visit the Low Volume Appeals Initiative webpage for more information.
A question and answer session follows the presentation; however attendees may email questions in advance to MedicareSettlementFAQs@cms.hhs.gov with “Low Volume Appeals Settlement February 13 Call” in the subject line. These questions may be addressed during the call or used for other materials following the call.
Target Audience: Medicare fee-for-service providers, physicians, and other suppliers with fewer than 500 appeals pending at OMHA and the Council.
