Independent Dispute Resolution Portal Reopening for Certain Disputes

This post has been archived and contains information that may be out of date.

What’s happening: The departments of Health and Human Services, Labor, and Treasury are reopening the independent dispute resolution (IDR) portal for all batched disputes and single air ambulance disputes.  

What else to know: The portal has been closed since federal agencies suspended all IDR process operations in August to align with the district court’s opinions and orders in TMA III and TMA IV.  

The departments will extend initiation deadlines to allow parties additional time to open batched disputes and air ambulance disputes that involve items and services for which the IDR initiation period ended during the time that initiation was unavailable.
