The final level of the standard Medicare Appeals Process concludes with an appeal to the Federal District Court. The law provides for judicial review of agency determinations, and the decision of the Medicare Appeals Council stands as an agency determination. Importantly, a provider only has 60 days to file a case in Federal Court after receiving the Council’s decision, and with the complexities and formal filing procedures of Federal Court, a provider must act quickly to properly get its case heard. Federal Court represents the most complex and onerous appeal level for a provider, and great skill and care is required when moving to this level.
