Got a health care grievance? There’s a place to complain
Sacramento Bee

Your health insurance company denied your treatment. Or it won’t provide the prescription drug you need. Or you’ve got a billing dispute. Or your longtime doctor was dropped from your health plan.

When you’ve got a complaint about health care, where are you gonna go? The MyPatientRights.org site is one starting point.

Launched last summer by the California Chronic Care Coalition, a group of more than 30 consumer health organizations, it’s intended to provide an easy link to the state Department of Managed Health Care, which handles consumer complaints with the state’s 122 licensed health plans.
