  • Grievances
    • Why should you file a grievance?
      You should file a grievance if you were unhappy with any aspect of care that you have received from Maricopa Care Advantage, whether or not remedial action is requested.

      Who can file a grievance?
      You or your authorized representative may file a grievance. You may file in person, by phone or in writing (mail, email, or fax) using the contact information provided below.

      There are two types of grievances:

      1) Grievance. All grievances (which includes complaints, concerns or disputes) which do not meet criteria for an expedited or “fast” grievance will be processed in this category. We will respond to you within 30 calendar days regarding grievances within this classification. If we need more information or the delay will benefit you, we can take up to 14 days more to answer your complaint.

      2) Expedited or “fast” grievance. If you have asked Maricopa Care Advantage to give you a “fast” or expedited response for a coverage determination or a redetermination (appeal) and we have said no, you can make a “fast” or expedited grievance. We must also review as a “fast” or expedited grievance if we extend a review timeframe for a determination and you do not agree with this decision. “Fast” or expedited grievance means we will provide a response to you within 24 hours.
