Prescription drug grievances and appeals information

If you requested a coverage determination and your request was not approved, you may appeal this decision. Below, you’ll find all the information you need to appeal.

If you requested a coverage determination and your request was not approved, you may appeal this decision by using this form:

Redetermination (Appeals) About Part D Prescription Drugs 
Y0026_127860_C_NM, Last Updated: 10/2019

 

Solicitud de Redeterminación de Denegación de Medicamento de Receta de Medicare

Y0026_127860_C_NM, Last Updated: 10/2019

 

Fill out the form and send it to us as a standard or expedited appeal within 60 calendar days from the date of the notice of the coverage determination (except when the filing time frame is extended). You need to include the following information with your written appeal:

  • First name, last name, address, phone number, date of birth, and ConnectiCare ID number

  • The name of the prescription drug you want us to cover

  • Reason why you are appealing

  • Your signature, or if someone is acting on your behalf, a completed appointment of representative form CMS-1696 or a written equivalent (if it was not submitted with the coverage determination)

You should send supporting documentation, including medical records, with your appeal request.

You, your appointed representative or your prescribing physician may request ConnectiCare expedite a coverage determination when you or your physician believes that waiting for a decision under the standard time frame may place your life, health, or ability to regain maximum function in serious jeopardy. A claim for payment for prescription drugs that you have already received will not be expedited.
