Medical/Dental Appeal Information

As a former state employee, your employment with the State created a Constitutionally protected contract. As a retiree, you are entitled to receive the benefits of that contract, including pension payments, as well as health care coverage and benefits. The State unilaterally and impermissibly changed those benefits in January 2014.

RPEA suggests that you appeal any claim denied by either Aetna or Moda that involves a service or procedure that you previously received, and was covered, prior to January 2014.

The following links are to documents with instructions as well as suggested language that we recommend you use in any appeal you file.
