Medicare Appeals

WASHINGTON (CN) - Public input into the regulations changing the Medicare claims appeal procedures under President Bush's 2000 Medicare, Medicaid and State Children's Health Insurance Program Act may not be incorporated into the rule for another year.

The Health Department's Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services have awarded themselves a year's extension to finalize the regulation even though the date for publishing the extension passed a couple of years ago. The agency states that changes to the claim appeals procedures enacted in Title IX of the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act of 2003, and the need to work with other departments are what allow them the extension, without mentioning the date to finalize the initial proposed rule had passed.
