You have a right to complain. This may also be called a grievance. You can complain if you are unhappy with your service or think you were treated unfairly. Talk to your provider first. You cannot lose your coverage for filing a complaint.
Please let us know if you are unhappy with your providers, services or decisions made about your treatment. An example of a grievance is if the receptionist was rude to you or you couldn’t get an appointment when you needed one.

You also have a right to appeal. This means you can ask for review of an action or decision about what services you get. You will not lose your benefits if you file an appeal. You may file an appeal if we deny or limit a type of service you request. You can appeal if we reduce or stop a service that was previously approved. You can also appeal if we deny payment for any part of a service. There are other actions you may appeal. To learn about those actions and how the appeal process works, please click here.
