Office of Medicare Hearings and Appeals (OMHA)

Checking the Status of Your Appeal

 

ALJ Appeal Status Information System (AASIS)

 

Welcome to AASIS.  This system allows you to check the status of appeals you have filed with the Office of Medicare Hearings and Appeals.  It is important to note that your appeal will not appear in the AASIS system until it has been entered into OMHA’s case tracking system.  Due to the volume of appeals OMHA is currently receiving, you should not expect to see your appeal for 16 weeks after you mailed it to OMHA.  Beneficiaries filing appeals addressed to the Beneficiary Mail Stop will see their appeals within one week.

Data in this system is updated weekly.  The date of the last data update can be found at the bottom of the inquiry page.

Appeals for which you have requested settlement through CMS will reflect the status of the appeal before settlement was requested.

Appeals that were decided more than 180 days ago will not appear in the system.

If you are using the Internet Explorer web browser, version 10 or above will display and print results in the correct format.

One of the pieces of information AASIS provides is the status of your appeal.  The definitions of the status fields are:

  • Received – The Office of Medicare Hearings and Appeals is in receipt of your hearing request.  However, your appeal has not yet been assigned to an Administrative Law Judge for review.  Due to exceptionally high volume a substantial delay should be expected before assignment of your appeal. 
  • Assigned – This appeal has been assigned to the Administrative Law Judge indicated and is in the process of being developed.
  • Deliberation – The decision for this appeal is being developed by the Administrative Law Judge indicated.
  • Decided – This appeal has been decided.  If you are entitled to a copy of the decision and you do not receive it within 10 business days of the ALJ Decision Mailed Date, please contact the ALJ team at the phone number indicated.

You may also see that your appeal has been:

  • Combined – To provide a more efficient review, this appeal has been combined with another appeal.  As a result of this combination, the appeal has been reassigned to the New ALJ Appeal Number indicated above.  To obtain updated appeal status, please search again using the New ALJ Appeal Number.
  • Reopened – This appeal has been reopened at the direction of the Medicare Appeals Council or the ALJ who decided the case.  As a result of this reopening, the appeal has been reassigned to the New ALJ Appeal Number indicated.  To obtain an updated appeal status, please search again using the New ALJ Appeal Number.
