§ 413.194 Appeals.
(a) Appeals under section 1878 of the Act.
(1) A facility that disputes the amount of its allowable Medicare bad debts reimbursed by CMS under § 413.178 may request review by the intermediary or the Provider Reimbursement Review Board (PRRB) in accordance with subpart R of part 405 of this chapter.
(2) A facility must request and obtain a final agency decision prior to seeking judicial review of a dispute regarding the amount of allowable Medicare bad debts.
(b) Other appeals.
(1) A facility that has requested higher payment per treatment in accordance with § 413.180 may request review from the intermediary or the PRRB if CMS has denied the request in whole or in part. In such a case, the procedure in subpart R of part 405 of this chapter is followed to the extent that it is applicable.
(2) The PRRB has the authority to review the action taken by CMS on the facility's requests. However, the PRRB's decision is subject to review by the Administrator under § 405.1875 of this chapter.
(3) A facility must request and obtain a final agency decision, in accordance with paragraph (b)(1) of this section, prior to seeking judicial review of the denial, in whole or in part, of the exception request.
(c) Procedure.
(1) The facility must request review within 180 days of the date of the decision on which review is sought.
(2) The facility may not submit to the reviewing entity, whether it is the intermediary or the PRRB, any additional information or cost data that had not been submitted to CMS at the time CMS evaluated the exception request.
(d) Determining amount in controversy. For purposes of determining PRRB jurisdiction under subpart R of part 405 of this chapter for the appeals described in paragraph (b) of this section—
(1) The amount in controversy per treatment is determined by subtracting the amount of program payment from the amount the facility requested under § 413.180; and
(2) The total amount in controversy is calculated by multiplying the amount in controversy per treatment by the projected number of treatments for the exception request period.
