How To File An Appeal

You have the right to appeal decisions made by HealthSourceRI and the Department of Human Services and to request a fair hearing.   A fair hearing is a chance for you to tell an administrative officer why you disagree with the agency's decision.  An agency representative is also present at the hearing to explain the basis for the agency decision.
