1NOTE: If you are asking for a formulary or tiering exception, your prescriber MUST provide a statement supporting your request.

Additional information we should consider
Important Note: Expedited Decisions
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 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.
(if you have a supporting statement from your prescriber, attach it to this request).
