The Medicare claim appeal process consists of four levels of administrative review within HHS, and a fifth level of review with the Federal courts after administrative remedies within HHS have been exhausted. The first two levels of review are administered by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and conducted by Medicare contractors for Part A and Part B claim appeals, by MAOs and an independent review entity for Part C organization determination appeals, or E:\FR\FM\23OCN1.SGM 23OCN1
