ABSTRACT
The article offers information on how to appeal for the health insurance plan of Medicare Part D patients. Patients who experienced problem with plans that do not pay for the drug that they need may have a detailed procedure on how to appeal the decision through the March 23 "Federal Register" posted in the web site http://a257.g.akamaitech.net/7/257/2422/01jan20071800/edocket.access.gpo.gov/2007/E7-5304.htm. They can seek for a reconsideration by their plans, an independent review group, an administrative law judge, and by the Medicare Appeals Council (MAC). If the steps provided in the web site fail to fulfill the needs of the patient, they may have the opportunity to file for a civil action in the federal district court.
