The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services will host a Feb. 13 call on its new settlement option for health care providers with a low volume of appeals pending at the Office of Medicare Hearings and Appeals and Medicare Appeals Council. Announced last November, the settlement option will begin accepting expressions of interest Feb. 5 from appellants with fewer than 500 Medicare Part A or Part B claim appeals combined as of Nov. 3, 2017, to settle appeals with total billed amounts of $9,000 or less in exchange for timely partial payment of 62% of the net Medicare approved amount. To submit questions for possible consideration during the call or in follow-up materials, email MedicareSettlementFAQs@cms.hhs.gov.
