Medical exception form

Here are some resources to help you complete a medical exception form, also known as a letter of medical necessity (LMN):


Typical elements of a Letter of Medical Necessity and frequently used supporting documents:

For prescription approval, third-party payers may require physicians to submit documentation of medical necessity to support coverage of the prescribed treatment. A Letter of Medical Necessity documents a patient’s medical history and diagnosis, and provides a medical justification for the prescribed treatment.


What is included in a Letter of Medical Necessity?

  • Reason for request
  • Reason for denial
  • Rationale to address each reason for denial, including relevant clinical rationale where applicable
  • Relevant overall patient medical history and current condition
  • Relevant cost information (if known)
  • Summary of your professional opinion of likely outcome with the treatment
  • Restatement of request for approval

A Letter of Medical Necessity is usually submitted as part of a more comprehensive medical exception request package. Many physicians submit additional supporting documents to the payer along with the Letter of Medical Necessity for clinical justification. Keep in mind that the specific coverage policies and processes vary by payer.


Frequently used supporting documents:

  • Any required appeal form from the insurer (if applicable)
  • Copy of the denial letter from the insurance company
  • Copy of the prescription
  • Patient’s signature on consent form for treatment
  • Patient’s complete medication profile including patient’s current, previous, and discontinued medications
