How to Appeal a Denial

You have the right to appeal a denial.

What is a denial? A denial means Molina MyCare Ohio Medicaid is telling you and your provider that services and/or claims will not be authorized or paid. If we deny, reduce or suspend your service or claim, you have the right to request an appeal of the denial. An "appeal" is the request for a review of an action.

If your service or claim is denied, you will get a letter from us telling you about this decision. This letter, called a Notice of Action (NOA), will tell you about your right to appeal. You can also read about these rights in your Member Handbook.

Member Services can help you to file an appeal over the phone. They can also assist you in filing a grievance if you are not happy with the decision of your appeal for a disputed healthcare service. You can also ask for assistance in filing a state hearing.
