Protocol for Resolving Complaints from Beneficiaries:

The client has the right to freely voice grievance and recommend changes in care of services without fear of reprisal or unreasonable interruption of services. Service, equipment, and billing complaints will be communicated to management and upper management. These complaints will be documented in the Beneficiaries Complaint Log, and completed forms will include the client’s name, address, telephone number, and health insurance claim number, a summary of the complaint, the date it was received, the name of the person receiving the complaint, and a summary of the actions taken to resolve the complaint.

All complaints will be handled in a professional manner. All logged complaints will be investigated, acted upon, and responded to in writing or by telephone by a manager within a reasonable amount of time after the receipt of the complaint. If there is no satisfactory resolution of the complaint, the next level of management will be notified progressively and up to the owner(s)of the company.

The client will be informed of this complaint resolution protocol at the time of set-up of service.
