THIS WEEK, we go over the most recent wrinkles and prevarications offered by the Office of Medicare Hearings and Appeals (OMHA) and CMS, about “the Administrations efforts to address the unprecedented and sustained increase in the number of appeals and to eliminate the backlog of appeals currently pending at the Office of Medicare Hearings and Appeals (OMHA) and the Departmental Appeals Board (DAB).”

Jessica is a frequent speaker nationwide and at our show.

Joining us again with a complete presentation on what CMS has now proposed is our resident expert on Medicare appeals, Jessica Gustafson, a co-founding partner at The Health Law Partners. She practices in all areas of healthcare law, and devotes a substantial portion of her practice to representing hospitals and other healthcare providers and suppliers in compliance and reimbursement matters, in particular in the Recovery Audit Contractor (“RAC”) and Medicare audit appeals process. If you’ve not heard Jessica before, you’re in for an education!

So, we will be discussing the following changes being proposed by CMS:

  • The Role of OMHA Attorney “Adjudicators”
  • New Limitations on Contractor Participation at Hearings
  • The Use of Precedential Council Decisions

So join us, share your own insights and bring your questions for us!
