Appeals

If the Peer Review & Credentialing Committee (PRCC) recommends an adverse decision based on medical quality concerns of an initial application or re-credentialing that result in a mandatory reportable action, the practitioner will be notified in writing of this decision. The practitioner has the right to request a hearing before a Judicial Review Committee (JRC) within 30 days of receipt of the PRCC notification. A provider who wishes, and is eligible, to file an appeal of an adverse credentialing or participation decision must deliver a written notice requesting a fair hearing before the JRC to the Alliance Chief Medical Officer within the time period specified.

The following procedures are followed for a Judicial Review process:

  • Fair Hearings shall be brought before a JRC for review and recommendation.
  • Notice will be given to the provider stating the date of the JRC and the provider shall have an opportunity to present their position.
  • The decision of the JRC will be sent to the PRCC and the practitioner.
  • The JRC will issue a written decision which shall include findings of fact and a conclusion within 30 calendar days after final adjournment of the hearing.
