In order to bring your matter to the attention of the GMS Ombudsman, you must provide a written request including:

  • your name, contact information, and GMS ID#;
  • a description of your matter and any relevant information or documentation (if applicable); and
  • your desired outcome.

Once your written request is received, your concerns will be acknowledged in writing.
