After you go through the intake process, you will be sent a letter telling you if you are eligible for services or not eligible for services.  If you are told you don’t meet the criteria and you disagree with that decision, you can appeal that decision.  Information on this appeal process will be provided with your determination letter.  It is also provided below.8

If you are determined ineligible for DDD services because you do not meet the eligibility requirements specified in Hawaii Revised Statutes (HRS) §333F, you will receive a notification letter.

The notification letter informs you of the right to appeal the decision.  You can seek an informal appeal with the Department of Health (DOH), and if dissatisfied with the result, request a formal hearing.

The notification letter informs you of the right to a formal hearing whether or not an informal appeal is sought.

Requests for a formal hearing must be in writing and received within ninety (90) days of the notification letter.  The request should identify what is contested, describe the basic facts and issues, identify the relief sought and identify the legal authority for the hearing.

Requests for an informal hearing must also be received within ninety (90) days of the notification letter.

In any appeal or hearing, you may represent yourself or have a lawyer, guardian, relative, friend or other person represent you.

Requests for informal appeals should be made to:

David Fray, Chief
