ALJ Appeal Status Now Available Online
Author: Suzy Harvey
The Office of Medicare Hearings and Appeals, which is responsible for Level 3 or Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) appeals, has a new system that providers can access to verify ALJ appeals status. To verify ALJ status through the ALJ Appeal Status Information System (AASIS), providers will need to enter the appeal number.
Due to the large number of appeals, it could take at least 16 weeks after mailing the appeal for it to show up in the AASIS system. Appeals finalized more than 180 days ago will not appear in the system, and those settled through a requested settlement will reflect appeal status before the settlement request is finalized. For all other levels of appeals, providers will need to contact the appropriate review contractor.
