It is possible for a beneficiary to file a request for a hearing when an appeal is
already pending. It is important to review the pending appeal as well as the new appeal
request to determine if the appeal is for the same issue and the same premium year.
Anytime you receive an appeal request:
Review the IRMAA
Appeals Tracking System to determine if an appeal is pending.
If an appeal is pending, review the Appeals Tracking System to determine if the new
appeal request is for the same premium year as the pending appeal:
If the premium year is the same, see HI 01140.011B in this section. Follow the directions on how to process an appeal request when an
appeal is already pending.
If there is no appeal pending or there is a different premium year involved, process
the request as explained in HI 01140.010.
