Starting on May 1, 2018, Medicaid subscribers in New York state will see drastic changes to their appeals process. These changes place more procedural requirements on those seeking to appeal Medicaid determinations.

For many Medicaid subscribers, the new “exhaustion” requirement will form the biggest change to the appeals process. Currently, subscribers can request a fair hearing without submitting to an internal review of the claim.

After April 2018, however, they will have to both exhaust the plan’s internal review procedure and receive an adverse appeal determination before they may file a request for fair hearing."
