What to do if you have a problem or complaint

If you have a problem with the plan or with your services or payment there are processes available to help you communicate with the plan. These processes have been approved by Medicare and Medi-Cal. Each process has a set of rules, procedures and deadlines that must be followed by the plan and by you.

There are difficult legal terms for some of the rules and deadlines. Many of these terms can be hard to understand, so we have used simpler words in place of the legal terms. Knowing the proper legal terms may help you communicate more clearly, so we provide those too.
