Observation Reconsideration Request

MHP Observation Reconsideration Request Form

Do you have documentation not previously submitted to McLaren Health Plan (MHP) that you believe supports an inpatient determination? MHP offers hospitals the opportunity to request a second clinical review of an observation decision. To start the reconsideration process, you need to complete the Reconsideration Request form at: McLarenHealthPlan.org/ReconsiderationForm

Forms must be submitted:

  1. With new/additional documentation not submitted with the first clinical review.
  2. Within 30 days of the observation determination date. Requests submitted outside of this time frame will not be accepted.
  3. Prior to claim submission. If you have already filed a claim, you may NOT request reconsideration. See appeal language below.

Directions to file for reconsideration of an observation determination decision:

  1. Complete the online form below or print and complete the Printable Observation Reconsideration Request Form.
