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

In the final part of our “How to Request Medicaid Hearings in Georgia” series, a final tip in this process is to make sure you’re well versed in your policies AND the Department of Community Health’s (DCH’s) policies.  While you may understand and know your own internal policies extremely well, it may be helpful to hire a healthcare attorney that specializes in and has experience with DCH’s policies and administrative appeals to ensure the best possible outcome of your hearing.

Knowledge of the facts and your and DCH’s policies are critical.

For the hearing:

  • Make sure you know the member
  • Determine what the medical records do and do *not* say
  • Identify if information used by DCH was correct
  • Determine if anything has changed

 

Again, here’s where engaging a healthcare attorney with experience in administrative hearings will be helpful.

Finally,  being proactive will help you minimize the amount of money lost to denied claims and increase your effectiveness in challenging denials issued by the Department.
