MEDICARE AND MEDICAID EXCLUSION APPEALS
APPEALING YOUR EXCLUSION FROM MEDICARE AND MEDICAID
Exclusion from Medicare and Medicaid can have devastating consequences. An individual who is excluded cannot be involved in any activity related to providing medical care, services, or supplies to recipients of Medicare and Medicaid benefits.
As a practical matter, the excluded individual cannot work for any employers that accept Medicare or Medicaid. Many private insurers also will not do business with an individual who has been excluded from Medicare or Medicaid. In many cases, exclusion forces a healthcare professional to stop practicing their profession.
If you have received a notice of exclusion, then you should consult with an experienced Medicare and Medicaid exclusion attorney immediately to protect your rights and your livelihood.
Do not delay. Call John Howley, Esq. at (212) 601-2728 to discuss your options.
How Do I Appeal My Exclusion from Medicare or Medicaid?
If you receive an exclusion notice from the Office of Inspector General (OIG) at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), then you have thirty days from the date of the notice to file an appeal. If you act promptly, you may appeal in administrative proceedings and in federal court.
If you received an exclusion notice from the New York State Office of Medicaid Inspector General (OMIG), then you have thirty days from the date of the notice to file an appeal with that office. If your appeal is not successful, you may challenge the exclusion in court.
In either event, you must act quickly because the deadlines are very short. To discuss your options, call John Howley, Esq. at (212) 601-2728 or click here to contact our office via email.
