What is a Grievance

Applicants, members, and/or their authorized representatives can file a grievance when they have a complaint about anything that does not involve appealing a decision, such as a denial or discontinuance of services or benefits.



  • General Complaints
  • Environmental hazard conditions at a doctor's office (dirt or clutter, unsanitary practices, overcrowded waiting areas)
  • Impoliteness or rudeness of providers (doctors, doctor's office staff, hospital personnel, etc.)
  • Impoliteness or rudeness of office staff (eligibility offices, AHCCCS Offices, Department of Economic Security Offices, Department of Health Services Offices, etc.)
