Supreme Court to decide how late is too late on Medicare pay appeals
from American Medical News
The U.S. Supreme Court is weighing whether health professionals can fight for higher Medicare payments if they discover they were shortchanged after the statutory deadline to appeal. The outcome of oral arguments, heard Dec. 4, will determine if "equitable tolling," which allows courts to waive a deadline in extraordinary circumstances, applies in the case.
