    Nelson Carney discusses new Medicare appeals option with HFMA

    The Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) recently published an article spotlighting CMS’s new “Low Volume Settlement Option,” which allows hospitals to settle outstanding appeals quickly and with a guaranteed payout. Bricker’s Health Care industry group leader Jennifer Nelson Carney was featured in the article, providing context on whether health care entities should take advantage of this option. She states that “knowing the slow pace of the current appeal process and the size of the appeals backlog, hospitals ‘may decide that getting 62 percent of the value of those claims is a good deal.’”
