Additionally, providers who wish to appeal a grievance resolution or adverse action taken by Sandhills Center can submit appeal requests within thirty (30) calendar days of the notification by Sandhills Center.  An appeal extension of an additional thirty (30) calendar days can also be granted to Sandhills Center providers if good cause criteria are met.  Good cause rationale could include but is not limited to the following:
