Individuals have the right to appeal an action that denies, reduces, or terminates Medicaid / FAMIS coverage or services.

As part of the appeal process, an impartial representative will conduct a review to determine whether your request for coverage or services should be approved based on applicable law and policy. The end result of the appeal is a written decision. Decisions by the DMAS Appeals Division may be appealed to court for review of the record.
