Settlement Conference Facilitation

National Government Services would like to remind providers about the SCF process. SCF is an alternative dispute resolution process designed to bring the appellant and the CMS together to discuss the potential of a mutually agreeable resolution for claims appealed to the OMHA level or the Medicare Appeals Council (Council) level of the Medicare claims appeals process. If a resolution is reached, a settlement document is drafted to reflect the agreement. As part of the agreement, the requests for hearing or review for the appeals covered by the settlement will be dismissed.

All Medicare Part A and Medicare Part B providers and suppliers who have OMHA or Council appeals pending are encouraged to visit the SCF website to familiarize themselves with the SCF process and eligibility requirements.
