What is the difference between a standard appeal and an expedited appeal?
An expedited appeal must be resolved and notification must be given to the person filing an Appeal in three days after we receive it. An expedited appeal does not have to be in writing. An appeal is considered an expedited appeal when using the standard appeal criteria could jeopardize the consumer’s life, health, or ability to attain, maintain, or regain maximum function. Mental Health staff will determine whether or not your appeal will be considered standard or expedited.
