How To Request An ALJ Hearing

What you can do if you do not agree with our decision.

If our decision is that we agree completely or partially with the health plan, you may have rights to a Hearing with an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). This is called an ALJ Hearing. An ALJ Hearing is a meeting with you, the ALJ and the Health Plan so that you can talk about your appeal. It is usually held by telephone or video conference.

You can have an ALJ Hearing if the amount of money at stake in your appeal satisfies the Amount in Controversy (AIC) requirement. To find out more about the AIC please visit: http://www.hhs.gov/omha

Beginning January 1, 2015, the amount in controversy must be at least $150.
