Grievances and Appeals

Champion Health Plan is interested in hearing from you about what is not working, as well as, how you would like it to. We are interested in complaints you may have about services you received, the way you were treated, the care you received (or didn’t receive in a timely manner), if you were charged incorrectly, or any other complaint you may have. We want to correct any inappropriate behavior, processes, or payments. You will not be “in trouble” or mistreated by us or your doctors if you complain. We’ll make sure of it. Your calls help us improve.

Filing a Grievance or Complaint

The first step is to call and tell them your complaint. The representative who answers your call will write it down for you and will send it immediately to the Grievance Department.

If you do not wish to call, you can put your complaint in writing and send it to us by fax or letter. Write a description regarding what caused you to be unhappy or mad. In your description include dates, names, and tell us all about the problem. If you put your complaint in writing, we will respond to your complaint in writing. We will research the matter, and we will respond to you within 30 days.

Whether you call or write, you should contact us as soon as possible after the incident. Complaints should be made within 60 calendar days of the day you had the problem.

We will look into your complaint and give you an answer. We must respond whether we agree with the complaint or not.

  • If possible, we will answer you right away. If you call us with a complaint, we may be able to give you an answer at the time you call.
  • Most complaints are answered in 30 calendar days. If your health condition requires us to answer more quickly, we will do that. If we need more information and the delay is in (44 calendar days total) to answer your complaint.
  • If you are making a complaint because we denied your request for a “fast coverage decision” or a “fast appeal,” we will automatically give you a “fast” complaint. If you have a “fast” complaint, it means we will give you an answer within 24 hours.

If we are not helping with your complaint, you can submit a complaint about  directly to Medicare. Medicare takes your complaints seriously and will use the information to help improve the quality of the Medicare program.

If you have any other feedback or concerns, or if you feel the plan is not addressing your issue, please call1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227), available 24 hours, 7 days a week including some federal holidays. TTY/TDD users can call 1-877-486-2048.

  • If you disenroll from our plan voluntarily we will send you a confirmation letter acknowledging the receipt of your request and stating the effective date of your disenrollment
  • You have the right to make a complaint if we end your membership in our Plan.

Voluntarily ending your membership
You can voluntarily disenroll from Champion Health Plan by submitting a written notification requesting to disenroll from our plan. Please include your name and member ID on the written letter and mail it to:

Champion Health Plan
Attn: Enrollment/Disenrollment
PO Box 15337
Long Beach, CA 90815-9995

You can also call 1-800-MEDICARE or switch to another Medicare organization. If you disenroll by calling 1-800-MEDICARE (TTY users should call 1-877-486-2048), 24 hours a day/7 days a week, or consult or switch to another Medicare organization, you do not need to submit written notification to Champion Health Plan.

Involuntary disenrollment means that Champion Health Plan can disenroll you from the plan if the following situations occur:

  • If you no longer meet the eligibility requirements to remain a member of Champion Health Plan.
  • If you engage in disruptive behavior, to the extent that your continued enrollment seriously impairs the ability to arrange or provide medical care for you or for others who are members of the Plan.
  • If you provide fraudulent information on an enrollment request
  • If you permit abuse of an enrollment card by letting someone else use your medical ID card. If you are disenrolled for this reason, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) may refer your case to the Inspector General for additional investigation.

If you are leaving our plan, you must continue to get your medical care through our plan until your membership ends.
