Ask for a Fair Hearing About Screening Results or Eligibility

If a person believes the answers given to his or her screening were not recorded right, he or she can contact the ADRC to request to update the screening, or he or she may ask for a Fair Hearing. If a person believes Comprehensive Assessment and Review for Long-Term Care Services (CARES) has denied medical eligibility in error, or the Department of Children and Families (DCF) has denied financial eligibility in error, he or she has the right to request a Medicaid Fair Hearing within 90 days of the notice. To request a Medicaid Fair Hearing, please write or call:
