IMPORTANT: You can get an interpreter at no cost to talk to your doctor or health plan. To get an interpreter or to ask about written information (in your language), first call your health plan’s phone number at 1-800-841-2790. Someone who speaks your language can help you. If you need more help, call the HMO Help Center at 1-888-466-2219. The California Department of Managed Health Care is responsible for regulating health care service plans. If you have a grievance against your health plan, you should first telephone your health plan at 1-800-841-2790 and use your health plan’s grievance process before contacting the department. Utilizing this grievance procedure does not prohibit any potential legal rights or remedies that may be available to you. If you need help with a grievance involving an emergency, a grievance that has not been satisfactorily resolved by your health care plan or a grievance that remained unresolved for more than 30 days, you may call the department for assistance. You may also be eligible for an Independent medical Review (IMR). If you are eligible for IMR, the IMR process will provide an impartial review of medical decisions made by a health plan related to the medical necessity of a proposed service or treatment, coverage decisions for treatment that are experimental or investigational in nature and payment disputes for emergency or urgent medical services. The department also has a toll-free telephone number (1-800-HMO-2219) and a TDD line (1-877-688-9891) for the hearing and speech impaired. The department’s Internet Web Site http://www.hmohelp.ca.gov has complaint forms, IMR application forms and instructions on-line.
