Expedited appeal requests

You can file a request for an expedited appeal if this is regarding continuing coverage for an inpatient stay, or if you feel that not receiving an urgent decision could seriously jeopardize the member's life, health, or ability to obtain, maintain, or regain maximum function. Please note, if the member has already received the denied medication or medical service, then your request will not be eligible for receiving an expedited response.

File by phone:

1-800-867-6601 (TTY: 711), Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 8 p.m., Eastern time

Standard appeal requests

You have up to 60 days from the initial determination or claim denial date to request an appeal. If it has been more than 60 days, good cause will need to be provided in order to process your request.
