New Appeals Information Management System (AIMS) Portal Streamlines the Appeals Process

The Virginia Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS) recently launched a new system and portal to manage the appeals process—the Appeals Information Management System (AIMS). The AIMS portal allows Medicaid members and providers the convenience of filing an appeal, submitting documents, and monitoring the status of an appeal online throughout the appeal process.

When Medicaid members and providers in managed care programs file the first level of appeal, they will continue using our Magellan Complete Care of Virginia (MCC of VA) appeals process. The new AIMS portal will handle the next level of appeal after members and providers have exhausted their appeal with MCC of VA.

Visit the DMAS website to https://www.dmas.virginia.gov/#/appealsresources to learn more about AIMS and access training resources. Questions? Contact DMAS Appeals at 1-804-371-8488.
