State Fair Hearings

How to File

Anyone who has experienced a denial, reduction, termination, or other problem with their mental health services has the right to request a State Fair Hearing before, during, or within 90 days after the completion of the problem resolution process, whether or not a Notice of Action has been received.


Beneficiaries may contact the Patients' Rights Advocate of the State Ombudsman to assist in filing for a State Fair Hearing at (800) 896-4042 or TTY at (800) 896-2512 or download the form electronically.

Please Note

All State Fair Hearing decisions are final.
