*You are a paralegal at Health Care Lawyers, LLC, which represents Healthy Living Partners, Inc., a DME company that supplies motorized wheelchairs. Healthy Living Partners has been denied a claim, numbered DCN# 00456789-D, for payment for a motorized wheelchair. The claim was already reviewed once and the denial notice, dated June 13, 2007, stated that the wheelchair was not “medically necessary” for the patient. Healthy Living Partners has received a number of denials of payment for similar claims and the company fears that it will go out of business if it cannot recover payment. Prepare a memo, outlining the steps of the appeal process. Be sure that you include relevant time limits and references to any outside sources.
