Getting a faster appeal

You can ask for a faster (expedited) appeal if you think waiting for a standard decision would put your health at risk (like if you’re currently in the hospital or urgently need medication).

How to request a faster appeal:

  • On your appeal request form. Let us know you need a faster appeal and explain the health reason.

  • In your appeal request letter. Tell us you need an “expedited” appeal (if you choose to write a letter to request your appeal instead of using the Appeal Request Form).

Make sure you include the health reason you need an expedited appeal. This will help us evaluate your request as quickly as possible.
