Under the new law, there are new ways to ask your plan to reconsider its denial of payment for a service or treatment. This is called an "internal appeal."
You will receive an explanation of the appeals process if you are ever denied coverage. In addition, you'll have the opportunity to have your appeal reviewed by an independent review organization if payment is still denied following the appeals process. This step is called an "external review."
