Mrs. Burton is a retiree with substantial income. She is enrolled in an MA-PD plan and was disappointed with the service she received from her primary care physician because she was told she would have to wait five weeks to get an appointment when she was feeling ill. She called you to ask what she could do so she would not have to
put up with such poor access to care. What could you tell her?
She could file a grievance with her plan to complain about the lack of timeliness in getting an appointment.
