On December 4, 2012 the Supreme Court heard oral argument in Sebelius v. Auburn Regional Medical Center.  This case involves Medicare payments to hospitals.  The issue is whether a 180-day statutory time limit for filing an appeal with the Provider Reimbursement Review Board from a final Medicare payment determination is subject to equitable tolling; meaning that a court has power to delay the running of the time limit in the interests of fairness.

To discuss the case, we have Evan Young, who is a Senior Associate at Baker Botts, LLP.
