If you or your prescriber believe that waiting 72 hours 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 you have a supporting statement from your prescriber, attach it in the Additional Information section at the bottom of this page.
If your prescriber indicates that waiting 72 hours could seriously harm your health, we will automatically give you a decision within 24 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.
Important: Please include a copy of the Redetermination (denial) Notice you received from your drug plan with this request.
Please attach any additional information you have related to your appeal such as a statement from your prescribing physician or other prescriber and relevant medical records.
