We hope you are happy with the Vaya Tailored Plan. If you are not satisfied or have a complaint (called a grievance under Medicaid), you may talk with your primary care provider or contact Vaya. Vaya has a “no wrong door” approach to grievances, which can be submitted in any of the following ways:
PHONE: Call the Vaya Member & Recipient Services Line at 1-800-962-9003 or Vaya’s Grievance Resolution & Incident Team at 1-828-586-5501, extension 1600. You can also report concerns anonymously through Vaya’s toll-free, 24/7 Compliance Hotline at 1-866-916-4255.
ONLINE: Visit the Vaya EthicsPoint compliance portal at vayahealth.ethicspoint.com and you will be able to report anonymously.
EMAIL: Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
MAIL: Write to us at Vaya Health, Grievance Resolution & Incidents Team, 200 Ridgefield Court, Asheville, NC 28806
A grievance and a complaint are the same thing. Contacting us with a grievance means that you are unhappy with Vaya, your provider, or your health services. Most problems like this can be solved right away. Whether we solve your problem right away or need to do some work, we will record your call, your problem, and our solution. We will notify you in writing to confirm that we have received your grievance. We will also send you a written notice when we have finished working on your grievance.
You can ask a family member, a friend, your provider, or a legal representative to help you with your grievance. If you have questions about the grievance process or need our help because of a hearing or vision impairment, or if you need translation services or help filling out any forms, call Behavioral Health Crisis Line at 1-800-962-9003.
