About Beneficiary & Family Centered Care - Quality Improvement Organizations (BFCC - QIOs)
BFCC-QIOs support people with Medicare and their families or caregivers. When people with Medicare have a concern about their care, the BFCC-QIO can help them in different ways:
Using the Immediate Advocacy process to address complaints quickly
Managing all complaints and quality of care reviews to ensure that the review process is consistent
Handling cases in which Medicare patients want to appeal a health care provider’s decision to discharge them from the hospital or stop other types of services
