Commerce has established a new committee to facilitate the appeal process.
For claims where the reviewer has determined that there are non-eligible
costs, every attempt will be made to obtain missing information before
the claim is sent to the committee. When received, the committee will
try to resolve the issues prior to making a reimbursement payment.
This is an effort by the Claim Review Section (Claims) to reduce the
number of appeals, reduce the appeal backlog and be more consistent
in review decisions.
The newsletter is issued electronically every other month.
