After submitting a Written Redetermination (1st level of an Appeal), why did we receive a letter stating the appeal was not filed timely?
A request for a Redetermination must be filed within four months after the date of the notice of the initial determination. If the Redetermination is not received within four months of the initial determination, a letter will be mailed to the provider stating the appeal was not filed timely. When requesting a Redetermination, Medicare Part B recommends that you use the CMS 20027 form. You may locate and print this form on the CMS web site at http://www.cms.hhs.gov/cmsforms/downloads/cms20027.pdf.
