The question has been asked, so I am reaching out to you all- what needs to be improved in the process to have an effective third-party appeal-
      1. Make it more timely (shorten the periods between levels)
      2. Make it more efficient (uniform process for MCOs, clear language on why claim is denied)
      3. Payment- get payment during appeal or institute penalties and interest for losing appeals
      4. Allow for similar claims to be grouped and appealed together
      5. Move the third-party outside the MCOs or DHS
      6. Other
