If your address changes, let us know. We need to be able to send you important information in the mail. Just call Member Services with your new address. You also need to make sure that the Department of Healthcare & Family Services (HFS) has your new address. HFS sends paperwork in the mail that you need to renew your Medicaid coverage. Report an address update to HFS online.

Your Certificate of Coverage

A certificate of coverage (COC) tells you what to expect from your healthcare plan. It outlines services and benefits that are—and are not—covered. The COC lays out all the details so that you can stay on top of your coverage.

How to File Appeals and Grievances

We want you to be happy with the treatment and services you get from Meridian and our providers. If we fall short, you can file a grievance or appeal.

A grievance is a complaint about a provider or about the quality of care or services you received. When you go to file, you’ll want to write when and where the incident took place, and what happened.

An appeal is a way for you to ask for a review of our actions. For example, we may not approve your provider’s request for a certain drug. You can make an appeal if you disagree with our verdict.
