Updates to the OMHA Case Processing Manual

Lilly Hummel

The Office of Medicare Hearings and Appeals (OMHA) has published two revised chapters of the OMHA Case Processing Manual (OCPM). The revised chapters are Chapter 17: Dismissals and Chapter 18: Requests for Information and Remands. The changes went into effect November 30, 2018. The 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.
