WALTHAM Mass. – CMS has agreed not to terminate Arriva Medical’s mail-order contract while the provider appeals to have its license reinstated.

An administrative law judge has required both parties to have initial briefings finished by Jan. 18. A hearing is scheduled for Feb. 8 before the Federal District Judge, stated Alere, Arriva Medicals’s parent company, in a press release.
