Documents: Gather any documents that are relevant to your complaint prior to filling out a complaint form. Please do not send us any original documents; send us copies only.
Authorization form needed: In most cases we will need copies of relevant records from your healthcare provider and/or insurance carrier. You will need to submit an authorization form so we can obtain your medical, insurance, and billing records. This authorization also allows us to release or redisclose your records and other information related to your complaint to your healthcare providers and/or insurance carrier and to other state or federal government agencies that may assist in the resolution of the complaint.
If you need our assistance with your Maryland Health Connection appeal, you will need to complete an Authorized Representative Form. For denials of premium tax credits or cost-sharing reductions, consumers need to provide copies of financial records that show proof of household income.
