OMHA Published Revised Chapter in its Case Processing Manual

Lilly Hummel

Within the Department of Health and Human Services, the Office of Medicare Hearings and Appeals (OMHA) has published a revised chapter of the OMHA Case Processing Manual (OCPM): Chapter 14, Scheduling and Noticing for Prehearing Conferences and Hearings. 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 direction for processing appeals at the OMHA level of adjudication. As part of an ongoing effort to make the manual more user friendly and reflect recent regulatory changes, OMHA is in the process of drafting new OCPM chapters and revising existing chapters under a new format.

New and revised OCPM chapters can be accessed here. Chapters that were published before May 10, 2018, can be accessed here
