Part A East Qualified Independent Contractor (QIC) Telephone Discussion and Reopening Process Demonstration
C2C Innovative Solutions, Inc. (C2C), the Part A East QIC, is currently offering providers telephone discussions and reopenings under this Medicare Appeals Demonstration. This demonstration allows providers the valuable opportunity to engage in a telephone discussion with the QIC’s medical reviewer prior to their decision being rendered; or, it allows the provider its last opportunity to submit documentation for appeals that are pending a hearing at the Office of Medicare Hearings and Appeals (OMHA). The additional documentation may allow the QIC to render a fully favorable reopening decision and eliminate the need for the OMHA hearing.
Watch Your Mail and Respond
If you receive a request for documentation or a scheduling notice for a discussion from C2C, please respond promptly to take advantage of this unique opportunity. This additional exchange of information may result in appeal outcomes favorable to the provider.
