Important Note: Expedited Decisions
If you or your prescriber believe 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 request,
we will decide if your case requires a fast decision. You cannot request an expedited coverage determination if you are asking us to pay you back for a drug you already received.
CHECK THIS BOX IF YOU BELIEVE YOU NEED A DECISION WITHIN 72 HOURS
(If you have a supporting statement from your prescriber, attach it to this request).
Please explain your reason for appealing Attach additional pages, if necessary. Attach any additional information you believe may help your case, such as a statement from your prescriber and relevant medical records.
You may want to refer to the explanation we provided in the Notice of Denial of Medicare Prescription Drug Coverage and have your prescriber address the Plan's coverage criteria, if available, as stated in the Plan's denial
