To help address the large backlog of Medicare appeals, CMS has launched a new Low Volume Appeals Option (LVA). “Under the program eligible providers and suppliers may submit an Expression of Interest (EoI) to CMS to be considered for an administrative settlement process to address a portion of pending appeals in exchange for a 62% partial payment of the net Medicare approved amount.” This is an option that should be considered by providers who have a significant amount of outstanding claim disputes.
