Today, we’re gonna talk about the appeal itself. Once you get a decision, what you need to do after the decision. The two avenues we’ve seen are to appeal it, or to ask for a reconsideration. Carol, what are your thoughts on this?
Don’t ask for a reconsideration. That’s my thought. You know, one of the saddest things is that we see people not continue their appeals. If you’re asking for a reconsideration, you’re not appealing. It’s sort of a new claim, a reopened claim, whatever you want to call it. You’ve got to say, “I disagree” and now there’s a form that you have to use. – Carol Ponton
