If you disagree with LIBERTY’s denial, reduction, suspension, or termination of service, you may request
a Fair Hearing. A Fair Hearing allows you and LIBERTY to give information about your situation to a Hearing
Officer. The Hearing Officer is a neutral party who makes a decision on your appeal. There is no charge for a Fair
Medicaid must receive your request within 120 calendar days from the Notice Date.
You may represent yourself or have the help of another adult. The adult can be a friend, family member, or
lawyer. Medicaid has provided the names of some agencies that may be able to help you. (See below).
The request for a Fair Hearing must include: (1) your name, address, telephone number, (2) Medicaid
number; and (3) if someone is helping you, the name, telephone number and address of the adult who will help
you (the "authorized representative"). You must sign the request unless you are unable to do so because of your
disability. You may use the enclosed form to request a Fair Hearing.
If you want your services to stay the same during Fair Hearing process, you must: 1) ask for a hearing
not more than 10 calendar days after the Date of Action (shown on the Notice of Decision); and 2) you
must ask that your services stay the same. (During the Fair Hearing process, your services will be continued)
You may use the enclosed form to do this.
LIBERTY may ask you to pay back the cost of the continued services if you lose your appeal.
After you have requested a Fair Hearing, Medicaid will contact you within 10 days to arrange a Hearing
Preparation Meeting (HPM). The meeting will be by telephone. The goal of this meeting is to try to resolve
your appeal. LIBERTY will explain its decision and give you the chance to provide more information. If you
and LIBERTY cannot agree, you may go to a Fair Hearing. A Hearing Preparation Meeting (HPM) is
optional. You do not have to take part in a HPM. You can let Medicaid know you want to go directly to a Fair
Hearing and have a Hearing Officer decide your appeal.

I am submitting this form to request a Fair Hearing. (Check all that apply and complete fields below)
I disagree with LIBERTY’s decision to reduce, terminate or deny benefits.
I am requesting my Fair Hearing be expedited because a standard hearing could jeopardize my life, health or ability to attain,
maintain or regain maximum function. The documentation from my medical provider to support this request is attached. (If you do
not supply this documentation, this request will be processed within the Standard Fair Hearing timeframe, 90 days.)
I am requesting a fair hearing based on the issue of reasonable promptness.
During the Fair Hearing process, I would like my benefits continued. I understand I may have to pay back the cost of services or
items if I do not win the Fair Hearing.

Estoy entregando esta forma para pedir una Audiencia Justa: (Chequee todos los que aplican y complete las lineas de abajo)
Yo no estoy de acuerdo con la decision de LIBERTY de reducir, terminar o negar beneficios.
Estoy solicitando que mi audiencia imparcial sea acelerada porque una audiencia estándar podría poner en peligro mi vida, mi salud
o mi habilidad para alcanzar, mantener o recuperar la máxima función. La documentación de mi proveedor médico para apoyar esta
solicitud se adjunta. (Si no suministra esta documentación, esta solicitud se procesará dentro del plazo estándar de audiencia
imparcial, 90 día.)
Yo estoy pidiendo una Audiencia Justa basado en el asunto de tiempo razonable.
Durante el proceso de Fair Hearing, yo quisiera que mis beneficios continύen. Yo entiendo que yo podria tener que pagar los costos
por servicios o cosas, si yo no gano la Audiencia Justa.
Por favor mándeme una copia gratis de las regulaciones relevantes a mi caso. También disponibles en la pagina del internet
