Once the appeal is filed, you will be notified by mail of the date, time and location of the appeals hearing. Hearings may be held at various locations throughout the State. Hearings may also be held by telephone. There is no cost for you to appear before the Private Plan Hearing Officer. It is not necessary to have an attorney represent you, however you may have one if you choose.
Following the hearing, the Private Plan Hearing Officer will issue a written order which is binding. However, if you disagree with that decision, you have the right to file an appeal with the Appellate Division of the New Jersey Superior Court.
