The decision to appeal a denied Medicare claim or an adjustment following a MAC, RAC or SMRC audit is affected by many factors, including the potential cost of attorney or consultant assistance. Physicians and facilities may feel stymied by the need to spend money to defend their billing or coding practices. However, appeals may be necessary not only to secure payment but also to address possible fraud or false billing allegations. Also, unless action is taken quickly CMS can collect a disputed overpayment while appeals are pending.

There are ways to finance the cost of appeals beyond conventional lending and hold on to payments during appeals. Certain methods have short time frames. If requirements are met, a form of financing is provided by the applicable MAC.
