If you are unhappy with medical care you have received while using Medicare, the government sponsored health insurance plan for adults age 65 and older, you, as a beneficiary, have the right to file a complaint or appeal.

Any and all grievances related to your medical care while on Medicare can be filed with your local state Quality Improvement Organization (QIO). Assigned the duty of studying and improving the Medicare program through evidence-based research, QIOs also include investigating complaints and providing third-party reviews of medical cases under appeal as part of their company mission.

Below is a directory of all QIOs listed alphabetically by state:
