Non-Contracted Provider Dispute Resolution Process For CMS Medicare Advantage Plan Members
A non-contract provider, on his or her own behalf, is permitted to file a standard appeal for a denied claim only if the non-contract provider completes a waiver of liability statement, which provides that the non-contract provider will not bill the Medicare member regardless of the outcome of the appeal. The health plan cannot undertake a review until or unless such form/documentation is obtained.
