Call us to determine if a service is covered
this is called an organizational determination or a pharmacy exception. If you need a fast decision, we can help there too.

If we have not covered a service claim the way you think we should, you can ask us to reconsider the decision. This is called an appeal. We can help with your appeal by reviewing the situation and even obtain an independent review for you.

If you have a problem with how a service was provided, let us know. This is called a grievance. We will research the situation to see how it can be resolved.

Generally, we respond to your questions and issues the same day. Sometimes we must obtain medical records or do research. In these cases, we are still required to respond to you no later than the timeframes outlined below:
