FYI, I came across this article:

"August 22, 2018 - HHS is making significant progress with eliminating the growing Medicare appeals backlog, according to recent court documents. The federal department projects Medicare to clear the backlog by the 2022 fiscal year.

A 70 percent increase in funding from Congress will allow HHS to clear the Medicare appeals backlog in the next four years, the federal department explained.

The $182.3 million boost in Office of Medicare Hearings and Appeals (OMHA) funding from March 2018 will allow HHS to increase administrative law judge staffing by about 80 judges and 600 new positions over the next 14 months."
