Do you know what to do if you don’t agree with a decision that was made about your Medicaid or other public benefits?

You have a right to a Fair Hearing. A Fair Hearing is an informal hearing to appeal a decision by the Office of Public Assistance (OPA) about your public benefits.

You can appeal decisions that you think are unfair, against the rules, or factually wrong. You can appeal decisions made about your Medicaid, Best Beginnings Child Care, SNAP, and other public benefits.
