The Office of Medicare Hearings and Appeals is a part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).  OMHA reports directly to the Secretary of HHS.  OMHA administers the nationwide Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) hearing program for appeals arising from individual claims for Medicare coverage and payment under Medicare Parts A, B, C and D, as well as appeals arising from claims for entitlement to Medicare benefits and disputes of premium surcharges.
