PMA Administrative Complaints
The Pastoral Medical Association’s ecclesiastical administrative process is designed to evaluate whether a PMA licensee is in compliance with PMA license rules and assure that PMA licensed practitioners maintain the highest of ministerial standards.
When to File a Complaint. Whether you are a PMA licensee, a client of a PMA licensee, a member of the PMA Helath Network or otherwise, you should file a complaint against a PMA licensed practitioner if you believe he or she has acted unprofessionally or beyond the scope of his or her PMA license, or outside appropriate standards of care. This may include discriminatory practices, misleading advertising, failure to provide full disclosure of services and/or any other activity you feel is unprofessional or not in keeping with reasonable ministerial standards.
Note that an Administrative Complaint is not an action where the complaining party is seeking some form of compensation. For complaints seeking financial compensation, please follow the guidelines for filing an action in the Agreement for Wellness Services you signed with your practitioner.
