ODS Advantage PPO grievance and appeals procedure

Our goal is to provide you with coverage and services that always exceed your expectations. However, if you have concerns or problems with any part of your benefits, care or service; as an ODS Advantage PPO member, you have the right to file a complaint.

There are two types of complaints: appeals and grievances.

Appeal
You can make an appeal if you disagree with a decision to deny a request for healthcare services or payment for services you already received. You may also make an appeal if you disagree with a decision to stop services that you are receiving. For example, you may ask for an appeal if our plan doesn’t pay for an item or service you think you should be able to receive. Our Annual Notice of Changes — Evidence of Coverage for the ODS Advantage PPO plan includes an explanation of appeals, including the process involved in making an appeal.

Grievance
A grievance is a type of complaint you make about Moda Health or one of our network providers, including a complaint concerning the quality of your care. This type of complaint does not involve coverage or payment disputes. Our Annual Notice of Changes — Evidence of Coverage includes more information about a complaint and how to make one.

Hello.

We have exciting news to share. ODS is changing its name to Moda Health.

Moda comes from the latin term "modus" and means "a way". We picked it because that's what we are here to do: help our communities find a way to better health.

Together, we can be more, be better.
