What is a grievance?

A grievance is a complaint. You can report a complaint about the quality of care, your health care providers, waiting times, Banner customer service, or any other concerns. 

How to file a grievance?

Start by calling, writing, or faxing us. You, your representative, or your doctor (or other prescriber) can do this. You may call our Customer Care Center if you have questions about filing a grievance.

If you file a written grievance, have a complaint related to quality of care or ask for a written response, then we will respond to you in writing.


Customer Care Center: (844) 549-1859, TTY 711

If you call us and we cannot resolve your complaint over the phone, we will respond to you within 30 calendar days from the date you file the complaint. The longest time Banner Medicare Simple Rx can take to answer a complaint is 30 days. If we need more information or the delay will benefit you, we can take up to 14 days more to respond to your complaint. We will notify you of the need for the 14-day extension, the reason for the extension, how it is in your best interest, and instructions on how to file a “fast” or expedited complaint if you do not agree with our decision to take the extension.
