Description:

An Alternative Dispute Resolution Initiative

As part of the broader commitment by HHS to improving the Medicare claims appeals process, the Office of Medicare Hearings and Appeals (OMHA) is expanding the current Settlement Conference Facilitation (SCF) program to reach additional providers and suppliers. SCF is an alternative dispute resolution process that gives certain providers and suppliers an opportunity to resolve their eligible Part A and Part B appeals pending at OMHA and the Medicare Appeals Council (Council).

During this call, learn about the newly expanded SCF Initiative, which appeals are eligible for SCF, and the SCF process. Visit the OMHA SCF website for more information.

A question and answer session follows the presentation; however, attendees may email questions in advance to OMHA.SCF@hhs.gov  with “SCF May 22 Call” in the subject line. These questions may be addressed during the call or used for other materials following the call.

Note: SCF is separate and distinct from the CMS Low Volume Appeals (LVA) Settlement Option. For more information, visit the LVA Initiative webpage or email MedicareSettlementFAQ@cms.hhs.gov.

Target Audience: Medicare Part A and Part B providers and suppliers with a total of 500 or more appeals pending at OMHA and the Council combined; or Medicare Part A and Part B providers and suppliers with any number of appeals pending at OMHA and the Council that each have more than $9,000 in billed charges.
 

For More Information: Visit the OMHA SCF Initiative website.
