AHA General Counsel
November 1, 2018
The AHA is extremely pleased that Judge Boasberg recognized the need to reimpose a time-based mandamus remedy for reducing the Medicare appeals backlog, which is what the AHA and plaintiff hospitals had originally requested. The court’s mandamus order will serve to keep HHS accountable in reducing the backlog.
