Grievances and Appeals

What is a grievance?

A grievance is a type of complaint that does not involve the denial of payment, or denial or discontinuation of services by our health plan or our network providers.

You might file a grievance if you have a problem with things such as:

  • You feel you are being encouraged to leave your plan
  • Waiting times on the phone, at a network pharmacy, in the waiting room, or in the exam room
  • The way your doctors, network pharmacists or others behave
  • Not being able to reach someone by phone or get information you need
  • A problem with customer service

When can a grievance be filed?

You can make a grievance complaint at any time unless it is about a Part D drug. If the complaint is about a Part D drug, you must file it within 60 calendar days after you had the problem you want to complain about.

What is an appeal?

An appeal is when you ask us to review a decision we made about coverage of a Part D prescription drug or the amount you must pay for the coverage.

You might file an appeal if:

  • We refuse to cover or pay for a Part D prescription drug you think we should cover
  • We turn down your request for an exception to cover a prescription drug
  • You disagree with the amount you must pay for cost-sharing for a Part D prescription drug

When can an appeal be filed?

You may file an appeal within 60 calendar days of the date on the letter we sent to tell you of our decision. You might be able to file an appeal even if 60 days have passed since we made our first decision. Tell us in your written request why you could not file within the 60 days allowed.
