How to file a grievance or appeal

If you have a grievance or appeal related to your Humana Florida Medicaid plan or any aspect of your care, we want to hear about it and see how we can help.

Appeal vs. Grievance

An Adverse Benefit Determination is when you do not agree with a decision we make related to your benefits. If this happens, you can request an appeal. An appeal is a request for us to reconsider our decision. You must file an appeal orally or in writing within 60 calendar days from the date of the Adverse Benefit Determination. An Appeal may take up to 30 days to process.

A grievance is a formal complaint or dispute expressing dissatisfaction with any aspect of the operations, activities or behavior of Humana or its providers. It does not involve decisions by Humana that are subject to an appeal, as outlined above. Grievances may take up to 90 days to process.

If you need an expedited appeal or grievance process, call us at 1-888-259-6779 (TTY: 711), Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 8 p.m., Eastern time.

Filing a grievance or appeal

In writing

To file a grievance or appeal, you must submit a grievance or appeal form to tell us what happened. Please provide as much information as you can so we can help resolve your issue.

Filing on behalf of another member

If you are filing an appeal or grievance on behalf of a member (other than yourself), you need an Appointment of Representative (AOR) form on file with Humana so that you are authorized to work with Humana on the member’s behalf.

You also may use other appropriate legal documentation that shows your authorized representative status (such as power of attorney)

AOR forms are active for one year from the date the form is signed by both the member and the representative, unless revoked.

Download, print, and complete the AOR form, found on the Document and Forms page; sign the form; and return it to us.
