Low Volume Appeals Settlement (LVA) Process

On February 5, 2018, CMS started accepting Expressions of Interest for its low volume appeals settlement (LVA) process.  The LVA settlement option is for providers, physicians, and suppliers (appellants) with fewer than 500 appeals pending at the Office of Medicare Hearing and Appeals (OMHA) and the Medicare Appeals Council (Council) at the Departmental Appeals Board, combined, as of November 3, 2017, with a total billed amount of $9,000 or less per appeal. 

If you are interested in participating in LVA to address your pending appeals, visit CMS’ website at https://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Appeals-and-Grievances/OrgMedFFSAppeals/Appeals-Settlement-Initiatives/Low-Volume-Appeals-Initiative.html External Website.
