HB17-1126 - Medicaid Appeal Review Legal Notice Requirements

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning the review of legal sufficiency of medicaid appeals.

Interim Study Committee on Communication Between the Department of Health Care Policy and Financing (HCPF) and Medicaid Clients. The bill requires the administrative law judge hearing medicaid appeals to review the legal sufficiency of the notice of action from which the recipient is appealing at the commencement of the appeal hearing if the notice of action concerns the termination or reduction of an existing benefit. If the notice is legally insufficient, the judge shall advise the appellant that he or she may waive the defense of insufficient notice and proceed to a hearing on the merits or may ask the judge to decide the appeal based on the judge's finding of insufficiency. The judge shall advise the appellant that a legally sufficient notice may be issued in the future and that the state may recoup benefits from the appellant.

The provisions of the bill apply to hearings conducted on and after a certain date.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
