The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will host a Medicare Learning Network event Tuesday March 13, 2018 from 1:30 to 3:00pm to cover the logistics of the low volume settlement process.
The event is free but registration is required. Click here to register.
The call is part of a new Low Volume Appeals (LVA) initiative to help address the significant backlog of Medicare appeals that are currently in line for resolution. 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.
CMS has designated specific EOI submission windows, based on NPI.
- NPIs ending in even numbers: 2.5.18 – 3.9.18
- NPIs ending in odd numbers: 3.12.18 – 4.11.18
IF you have both odd and even NPIs you will be required to submit one EOI per NPI during the appropriate designated timeframe.
EOIs should be submitted to MedicareAppealsSettlement@cms.hhs.gov.
