Appeals

Grievances

Appeals to our Plan (Appeal Level 1)

You may ask us to review our coverage determination (Part D) or organization determination (Part C), even if only part of our decision is not what you requested. An appeal to our plan about a Part D drug is also called a plan “Redetermination.” An appeal about a medical care decision is called a plan “Reconsideration.” When we review your appeal, we look carefully at the information about your request for an exception to Part D coverage rules or for coverage of medical care to ensure we were fair and that we followed all applicable rules when we made our initial decision.

Who may file your appeal of the coverage or organization determination?

When you appeal a coverage determination about a Part D drug or an organization determination for Part C medical care or services, you, your representative, or your doctor may file a standard appeal request or a fast appeal request.

How soon must you file your appeal?

You must file the appeal request within 60 days from the date included on the notice of our coverage determination or organization determination. We may give you more time if you have a good reason (also known as Good Cause) for missing the deadline

How to file your appeal
Asking for a standard appeal

To ask for a “standard” or “fast” appeal for a Part D drug or Part C medical care or services, you, your doctor or your representative should use the following contact information:

For Part C Appeals (about your medical care services):

Mailing Address:
Gold Kidney Health Plan Inc.
Attention: Utilization Management Dept.
P.O. Box 14050
Scottsdale, AZ 85267

Phone: 1-844-294-6535
TYY Users: 711
Fax: 1-866-515-7869 Attention: Gold Kidney Appeals & Grievances Department

For Part D Appeals (about Part D prescription drugs):

Mailing Address:

Phone: 888-672-7206
Fax: 858-790-6060
Webpage: https://mp.medimpact.com/partdappeal

For standard Part D appeals, we must inform you of our decision within 7 days after receiving your appeal (sooner if your health requires a faster decision). If we fail to do so, we must send your appeal to Level 2 in the appeals process.

For fast and standard Part D appeals, if we deny your Level 1 appeal to our plan, you may choose to accept the denial, or you may make another appeal. This appeal would be a Level 2 appeal. At this level, an outside Independent Review Organization with no connection to our plan reviews our decision and decides whether to uphold it or change it.

Asking for a fast appeal
If you are appealing a decision we made about giving you a Part D drug or Part C medical care or services you have not received yet, you and/or your doctor will need to decide if you need a fast (or “expedited”) appeal. The requirements for receiving a fast appeal are the same as those for receiving a fast coverage decision. If your doctor provides a written or oral statement explaining your need for a fast appeal, we will automatically give you one.

For Part C and Part D fast appeals, we must give you our decision within 72 hours after receiving your appeal. For Part C appeals only, we may take up to 14 more days if you request more time or if we need more information to make our decision. If we do not meet these guidelines, we must send your appeal to Appeal Level 2. To request a fast appeal outside of regular business hours, please fax your request to the fax numbers shown in the “Asking for a standard appeal” section above.

Additional appeal rights
Provided you meet certain rules, you may be able to continue up to 5 levels of appeal. Please see our plan’s Evidence of Coverage for more information about these additional appeal levels. You also have appeal rights if you believe you are being released from a hospital too soon or you believe coverage for home health, skilled nursing or outpatient rehabilitation care is ending too soon. The Evidence of Coverage also has information about these types of appeals, so please consult your Evidence of Coverage or contact our Member Services Department at 1-844-294-6535, 8:00 A.M. – 5:00 P.M., Monday – Friday.

Appeals Request Form
Your right to make complaints

As a member of our plan, you have the right to make a complaint (also called “filing a grievance”) for certain types of problems not related to benefits, coverage, or payment.

Here are some examples of problems that are handled through the grievance process:

  • You are not satisfied with the quality of medical care you receive,
  • You are unhappy with the cleanliness of one of our network pharmacies, doctor’s offices or clinics,
  • You experience excessive waiting times (for example, you have trouble getting a doctor’s appointment or you have to wait too long in a doctor’s office, at a pharmacy or to speak to a Member Services representative),
  • You feel that someone did not respect your privacy rights, or
  • You are dissatisfied with our timeliness in responding to coverage decisions and appeals you have asked for

Fast Grievances
If our plan denies your request for a “fast” coverage decision or a “fast” first-level appeal and you believe a longer waiting time could endanger your health, you may ask for a “fast” grievance (by phone or in writing). We will answer a “fast” complaint within 24 hours.

Coverage Decisions
Coverage decisions are decisions we make about your benefits or coverage or about the amount we will pay for Part C medical services or Part D drugs. A coverage decision about Part C medical services is called an “organization determination.” A coverage decision about Part D drugs is called a “coverage determination.” Coverage determinations and organization determinations are the first step in addressing problems you may have regarding medical or prescription drug benefits, coverage or payment amounts.

Who may ask for a coverage decision?
You, your prescribing physician, or someone you name may ask us for a coverage determination. Other persons may be authorized under state law to act on your behalf.

Most standard coverage determination requests are requests for exceptions to our rules or restrictions that apply to a certain drug. These requests require that your doctor or other prescriber submit a written statement giving the medical reasons for requesting an exception to our rules or restrictions.In these cases, we must give you our decision no later than 72 hours after we receive your doctor’s or prescriber’s statement supporting your request. For a standard coverage determination about a request for payment for a Part D drug you have already purchased, we must give you our decision no later than 14 days after we receive your request. If our decision is favorable, we must also make payment to you within 14 days after we received your request.If these standard deadlines could cause serious harm to your health, you can ask for a “fast” or “expedited” coverage determination. If your doctor or other prescriber tells us you need a fast coverage determination, we will automatically agree to give you one. For a fast coverage determination about a Part D drug, we will give you our decision within 24 hours. This usually means 24 hours after we receive a written statement from your doctor or other prescriber supporting your request.
