Federal forum will address disputed Medicare terminations
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services will hold a June 20 forum for providers between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. (Eastern Time). Specifically, the event will provide additional guidance on the new expedited review process for disputed terminations of Medicare-covered services.
According to CMS, the forum will give providers an opportunity to talk with government officials so providers can better understand the new review process and notice requirements.
