The Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services has amended its 2023 fee guidance for the federal independent dispute resolution process, the agency announced last week. Under the amended guidance, administrative fees due from each party for participating in independent dispute resolutions will increase to $350 per party. Additionally, CMS says updated entity fees, which take effect Jan. 1, 2023, can be found here.

Additionally, the departments of Health and Human Services, Labor and Treasury issued their initial report on the federal independent dispute resolution process. The report, which covers the period of April 15 through Sept. 22, includes information on the number of disputes initiated; the number of disputes closed; the types of parties engaged in disputes; the types of services under dispute; and the states in which disputed items and services were provided.
