    I know this isn't quite the right place for this, but this group seems to be so helpful I thought it was worth asking.

    Does anyone know a good source for locating sample appeal letters to be submitted to Medicare?

    Thanks in advance for any assistance.

    Thanks, mjones. We have the appeal forms, but due to the nature of the situation we need to submit a compelling letter of explanation to accompany the forms.

    Re: patient / subscriber # / DOBirth

    Dear Sirs,
    We are appealing denial of the following service, which has been erroneously denied as (reason for denial):
    DOS / CPT code / Description

    (Paragraph explaining circumstances ... cite CPT and/or CCI edits as appropriate)

    I enclose copies of the medical record. Please reconsider payment for this medically necessary service.

    If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at (phone #)

    Name, CPC

    Hope that helps.

    F Tessa Bartels, CPC, CEMC
