Rights and Advocacy
Read about your member rights and your responsibilities as a member of FBHPartners.
Rights and Responsibilities under Section 504 and the ADA
You have the right to file a grievance (complaint) about the services you are receiving and to appeal a denial or reduction of service.
It is the policy of Foothills Behavioral Health Partners LLC (FBHP) not to discriminate on the basis of disability. FBHP has adopted an internal grievance procedure providing for prompt and equitable resolution of complaints alleging any action prohibited by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (29 U.S.C. 794) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services regulations implementing the Act. Section 504 prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.
Any person who believes she or he has been subjected to discrimination on the basis of disability may file a grievance under this procedure. It is against the law for FBHP to retaliate against anyone who files a grievance or cooperates in the investigation of a grievance.
FBHP will make appropriate arrangements to ensure that disabled persons are provided other accommodations, if needed, to participate in this grievance process. Such arrangements may include, but are not limited to, providing interpreters for the deaf, providing taped cassettes of material for the blind, or assuring a barrier-free location for the proceedings. The Section 504 Coordinator will be responsible for such arrangements. To reach this coordinator please call 303-432-5956.
