Filing Period Extended for ACA Appeals Using Streamlined Procedure

December 9, 2016

A previously published NewsFlash article entitled “Streamlined Procedure for ACA-Related Appeals” notified providers of a limited-time procedure for the submission of appeals regarding Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) payments. A subsequent article extended the original filing period for such appeals. To further assist providers, the filing period is being extended through March 31, 2017.

In all other particulars, providers must closely follow the previously published instructions regarding the submission of ACA appeals.

Providers with questions may call the Telephone Service Center (TSC) at 1-800-541-5555.
