How to Express a Concern or Dissatisfaction with Care or Service
As a Participant of On Lok Lifeways, it is your right to voice your concerns and file a complaint at any time, without fear of reprisal from staff.
In order to better serve you, we have grouped concerns and dissatisfaction into two categories:
- Grievances: On Lok considers a “Grievance” as any complaint, whether written or oral, that expresses dissatisfaction with how we deliver our services or the quality of care we provide. To learn more about how to file a Grievance, click on one of the links below:
- Appeals: When On Lok Lifeways decides not to cover or pay for a service you want, you may take action to change our decision. The action you take—whether verbally or in writing—is called an “Appeal”. To learn more about how to file an Appeal, click on one of the links below:
