Tips on How to Request Medicaid Hearings in Georgia (Part I of III)

Jeyaram & AssociatesGeorgia’s Medicaid system has been the subject of numerous television reports and newspaper articles recently.  However, one Medicaid topic that usually does not receive enough attention is the appeals process.  We are devoting the next several blog posts to information about the Medicaid appeals process as it relates to members and providers.  The first in our three part series is how to request an appeals hearing if you’re a healthcare provider in Georgia.

Following are steps on how to request an appeals hearing:

The Department of Community Health (DCH) must receive the request within 30 days from when the administrative decision was received by the member.

Request must be in writing and include the following:

– That you want a hearing

– A copy of the administrative decision issued by the Department

– Evidence as to why the Department’s decision is incorrect

– Declaration of what the Department’s decision should be

If you do not raise an issue in your administrative review, it is considered waived

Filing a request for hearing will not delay the Department from enforcing its decision.
