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 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.



If you have a supporting statement from your prescriber, attach it to this request.

(**Attachments not available in the online form, refer to PDF form)


Please explain your reasons 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.
