How to report problems in your Health Plan


As soon as you have a problem, document everything and take action. Take notes, document everything, and always be pleasant with whomever you speak with. Do not expect your health plan to respond quickly to your complaint. There are many organizations and officials that will help you get the care you need and deserve. People with dwarfism should never accept less care because of their condition.
