On March 1, 2013, the Provider Reimbursement Review Board (PRRB or the Board) issued Alert 9, which notified interested parties that the PRRB has made revisions to its Rules and updated its Model Forms. Medicare providers that file appeals with the PRRB should review the revisions to ensure that their appeal filings and other documents comply with the Board’s revised requirements.

The rule revisions were effective on March 1, 2013, and apply to appeals pending as of, or filed on or after, March 1, 2013. The revised rules supersede the previously issued rules, which were last revised on July 1, 2009.
