Prescriber’s Information

*Indicates required fields

Important Note: Expedited Decisions

If you or your prescriber believes that waiting 7 days for a standard decision could seriously harm your life, health, or ability to regain maximum function, you can ask for an expedited (fast) decision. If your prescriber indicates that waiting 7 days could seriously harm your health, we will automatically give you a decision within 72 hours. If you do not obtain your prescriber's support for an expedited appeal, we will decide if your case requires a fast decision. You cannot request an expedited appeal if you are asking us to pay you back for a drug you already received.

 

Additional information

Please explain your reasons for appealing. Provide any additional information you believe may help your case, such as a statement from your prescriber and relevant medical records.
