Schedule an Appointment

Please schedule an appointment online before you visit to conduct business with IDHS. No walk-ins will be accepted. Note: This system is not to be used for scheduling inspections.

If you would like to file a petition for review, you may do so by completing the form below or by serving a petition for review by mail or personal service in accordance with the requirements of your order. Generally speaking, a petition for review is appropriate when you believe the law was improperly applied, you disagree with the facts supporting the decision, or that the order was inappropriate for some reason. By completing and submitting the online form, the IDHS waives the requirement of service by U.S. mail or personal service contained in IC 4-21.5-3-1(c) and your petition will be considered to be “filed” on the date it is submitted.  You will receive a copy of your submission at the email provided below.

Please keep in mind, just because you file for a petition for review, does not necessarily mean that you do not have to comply with the requirements of the order or that the order is not effective. Please review your order to determine the effective date of its requirements.

If your request for administrative review is granted, an ALJ will be assigned to your case. The ALJ will conduct all administrative proceedings (prehearing conferences, status conferences, and evidentiary hearings) and may issue orders containing factual findings and legal conclusions related to the matter being reviewed. Decisions of the ALJ, not involving emergency orders, do not become final orders until reviewed by the ultimate authority which may affirm, modify, or reverse any findings of the ALJ. However, the ALJ is the ultimate authority for all actions with respect to emergency orders. For additional information about the administrative review process, please see the Guide to IDHS Administrative Appeals.
