ALJ Hearing Program -Quarterly Listing of Program Issuances

Dianne De La Mare

On February 23, 2016, the Office of Medicare Hearings and Appeals (OMHA) released a quarterly notice of OMHA Case Processing Manual (OCPM) instructions that were published from October through December 2015. This manual standardizes the day-to-day procedures for carrying out adjudicative functions, in accordance with applicable statutes, regulations and OMHA directives; and gives OMHA staff guidance for processing appeals. 

Specifically, the OCPM was updated to include new provisions in five different OCPM Divisions including: Division I: General Matters; Division II: Part A/B Claim Determinations; Division III: Part C Organization Determinations; Division IV: Part D Coverage Determinations and Division V: SSA Determinations.
