CMS: Hearings Related To State Survey Actions Must Be Filed Electronically

Posted on Thursday, May 14, 2015 10:05 AM

CMS has issued a survey and certification letter stating that effective October 1, 2014, providers that disagree with actions imposed on their agencies/facilities and want to request a hearing with an Administrative Law Judge in the Civil Remedies Division must submit their request electronically to the Departmental Appeals Board using the DAB E-File. Click here to see it. Petitioners must first become registered users to utilize the electronic filing system. The letter includes an attachment that provides instructions on how to register and use the DAB’s Electronic Filing System. Please note, written requests for hearings delivered by postal delivery are no longer accepted unless the petitioner does not have access to the internet or a computer. In those instances, the petitioner may call the Civil Remedies Division and provide an explanation as to why they cannot file electronically. Click here to read the letter. Click here to read more.
