Waiting for Medicare appeals cut in half

The office who are responsible for Medicare coverage, appeals has cut the waiting period for seniors in half when they are requesting a judge.

The Medicare appeal progress follows the announcement last Jan., which federal officials were going to work through a crushing blacklog by moving to the front of the line. And by suspending the hearings on cases from doctors and hospitals for the last 2 years.

Beneficiary appeals, which were filed before the new policy was established could be languishing in the backlog piles, until officials can locate them.

The appeals department is striving for a 90-day mark and they expect the beneficiary appeals backlog to shrink in 2015.
