OMHA’s Settlement Conference Facilitation Expanded

Dianne De La Mare

The Office of Medicare Hearings and Appeals (OMHA) has expanded its Settlement Conference Facilitation (SCF) Pilot Program for Part B appeals. As you recall, OMHA held on open door call on 10/15/15 to discuss SCF, a pilot alternative dispute resolution process designed to bring the appellant and CMS together to discuss the potential of a mutually agreeable resolution for claims appealed to the Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) hearing level of the Medicare claims appeals process.
