MOD E-File Instructions

This page contains instructions about how to use the Medicare Operations Division electronic filing system ("MOD E-File") to file, respond to, and manage a case electronically before an administrative appeals judge of the Medicare Operations Division ("MOD").

Before you can submit your request for review electronically using MOD E-File, you must become a registered user of MOD E-File.
