Appeals of Claims Decisions

May 20, 2013

First Coast Service Options, Inc., a Medicare Administrative Contractor, has put together a nice summary of the 5 different levels of the appeal process, time limit for filing the request, and where to file the appeal. This site even has an option where the provider can submit the date of the denial or decision of an appeal, and the system will tell the provider the date of when they must appeal to the next level. Even though this is on the First Coast Service Options website, this would be the same process for all Medicare Administrative Contractors, hence, would be good for all you to check out.
