Expedited Appeals

 

Beneficiaries in original Medicare have access to a fast-track, expedited review process when Medicare coverage of their SNF, HHA, CORF, or hospice services is about to end.  The requirement for these expedited reviews stems from section 1869(b)(1)(F) of the Social Security Act (the Act), as amended by section 521 of the Medicare, Medicaid and SCHIP Benefits Improvement and Protection Act of 2000 (BIPA), Public Law 106--554.
