If you are unhappy with your health plan, provider or services, you may file a grievance or complaint. Grievances/complaints and appeals are different. A grievance/complaint is when you are unhappy or concerned about any matter other than an action to reduce, stop or limit your services.
You can file a grievance/complaint yourself or you may ask a family member, friend, provider or legal representative to help you. Partners can also help you if you need help filling out any forms.
You can file a grievance/complaint by phone or in writing:
- BY PHONE: Call Member and Recipient Services at 1-888-235-4673, 7 a.m.-6 p.m., Monday-Saturday. After business hours, you may leave a message, and we will contact you during the next business day.
- IN WRITING: Send your grievance/complaint at Partners Health Management, 901 S. New Hope Road, Gastonia, NC 28054.
- BY EMAIL: email@example.com.
- ONLINE FORM: Use our feedback form located at partnersbhm.org/feedback.
We will let you know in writing that we got your grievance/complaint within 5 days of receiving it. We will review your complaint and tell you, in writing, how it was resolved within 30 days of receiving your grievance/complaint.
