What about managed care rights?
Many organizations have developed bills of rights for people with severe mental illnesses who are treated in a managed care setting. The Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS) has developed principles for managed care treatment. CMHS recommends that providers, managed care firms, and consumers consider these principles in their decision-making process. Most managed care firms have a process for grievances and appeals. Participants may appeal a treatment decision, question payment decisions, or file complaints about providers and facilities.
