Speak up! Your voice will be heard! The AMA offers numerous ways for physicians to register their complaints about health insurers and other payers. Physicians can use the following tools:
- State Department of Insurance complaint forms and State Medical Association complaint processes. Not sure if your complaint falls within the purview of your state’s department of insurance (DOI)? Download the document "What types of complaints do state insurance regulatory agencies handle?" for a brief overview.
