  • Provider Appeals and the Medicare Backlog: New Initiatives and Approaches (Intermediate) - On Demand Recording

    Recorded On: 12/14/2017

    Despite the success of the Office of Medicare Hearings and Appeals (OMHA) in reducing the backlog of provider appeals, OMHA continues to receive more appeals than it has the resources to adjudicate in a timely manner. The delay in appeal processing has been the subject of significant concern in the provider community. This webinar is designed to discuss the various new initiatives OMHA is introducing the help with this backlog as well as discuss new rules that address these issues in more detail. The panelists will discuss the current status of appeals, the new rules related to the backlog and the initiatives being introduced to reduce the delays, and strategies providers and their counsel can consider as they deal with these matters. Specifically, the panel plans to address the role of attorney adjudicators, escalation, the Health and Human Service’s Department Appeals Board precedential decision authority, and the simplified escalation process. The panel also intends to discuss issues the provider community struggles with in this area such as cash flow matters for smaller providers and the overpayment demands with significant interest rates. The presentation will involve a point and counter point dialogue between OMHA representatives and the provider community on these important issues.

    The Paul Wellstone and Pete Domenici Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act of 2008 (MHPAEA) is one of the most complex and challenging regulatory obligations for health plans and health insurance issuers.  Through the sweeping requirements for parity in the application of non-quantitative treatment limitations (NQTLs) MHPAEA also has major liability and compliance implications for providers and other downstream entities involved in benefit management.  Regulatory and sub-regulatory guidance and enforcement actions under MHPAEA have been continually evolving since its passage.
