Provider Complaint Against a Plan
The DMHC recognizes that it is important for hospitals, doctors and other providers to be paid promptly and accurately, and our Provider Complaint process is offered as a primary means of ensuring prompt payment.
Before the DMHC can begin a review, the provider is required to submit the dispute to the payer's Dispute Resolution Mechanism for a minimum of 45 working days or until receipt of the payer's written determination, whichever period is shorter.
Appropriate supporting documentation is a prerequisite for a review of any issue. Upon submission of your complaint, an acknowledgement of the receipt of your complaint will be e-mailed along with a complaint number, and a list of the required supporting documentation and instructions for submitting the documentation.

Independent Dispute Resolution Process (IDRP)
The DMHC established an Independent Dispute Resolution Process (IDRP) to afford non-contracted providers who deliver Emergency Medical Treatment & Labor Act (EMTALA) required emergency services a fast, fair and cost-effective way to resolve claim payment disputes with health care service plans or capitated providers concerning the “reasonable and customary” value of services rendered. IDRP is voluntary and non-binding as to both providers and payers.
