Arriva Medical considering appeal options following court's ruling
According to the press release, the complaint was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia on Dec. 28.
“While we are pleased that the Court denied CMS’ motion to dismiss Arriva’s complaint, we disagree with the Court’s ruling on Arriva’s motion for interim relief,” Arriva, which is an Alere Inc. subsidiary, said in a press release. “Arriva is considering options for appeal; the court’s decision does not affect or prejudge the ongoing administrative appeal process.”
Arriva is confident that the appeal process will lead to a positive outcome for Arriva and its patients who rely on it for mail-order supplies, the company said in the release.
Alere filed an appeal Dec. 27 for an administrative law judge hearing with the goal of permanently reinstating Arriva’s Medicare billing status, according to the release.
King & Spalding LLP has been retained as Alere’s legal counsel in the Arriva case.
