Who should use these training resources?
If you are a Virginia Medicaid provider or provider representative who wants to learn more about using the Appeals Information Management System (AIMS) portal to file an online appeal or other appeals-related task, you are in the right place. Reminder: If the action being appealed stems from a Medicaid Managed Care Organization (MCO) you must exhaust the appeal rights with the MCO before you can file your appeal with DMAS.
Use these training resources to learn how to use the AIMS portal to:
- File an appeal
- Submit supporting documentation for your appeal
- Review decisions or actions taken
We have developed a library of training resources to help use the AIMS portal to manage your appeals process. Watch a video, locate step-by-step instructions in a comprehensive user guide, or find answers to frequently asked questions, all right here.
