What is a grievance?

A grievance is a complaint about any problem you had with Healthfirst Medicare Plans or one of our network pharmacies that does not relate to coverage for a prescription drug. Grievances do not relate to payment for or approval of a prescription drug, which are known as coverage determinations. If you (your appointed representative) have a grievance, please call Member Services at 1-888-260-1010, or TTY 1-888-542-3821 for the hearing or speech impaired, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We will try to resolve any complaint over the phone.

You may also send your grievance to the following address:
