(2) The enrollee meets the amount in controversy requirements of § 423.1970.
(3) For purposes of this section, the date of receipt of the IRE's dismissal is presumed to be 5 calendar days after the date of the written dismissal notice, unless there is evidence to the contrary.
(4) For purposes of meeting the 60 calendar day filing deadline, the request is considered as filed on the date it is received by the entity specified in the IRE's dismissal.
(b) If the ALJ determines that the IRE's dismissal was in error, he or she vacates the dismissal and remands the case to the IRE for a reconsideration.
(c) An ALJ's decision regarding an IRE's dismissal of a reconsideration request is binding and not subject to further review. The dismissal of a request for ALJ review of an IRE's dismissal of a reconsideration request is binding and not subject to further review, unless vacated by the MAC under § 423.2108(b).
