Appeals

If your patient’s health insurance plan has issued a denial, your Immunology Field Reimbursement Manager (IFRM) or Genentech Rheumatology Access Solutions Specialist can provide resources as you prepare an appeal submission, as per your patient’s plan requirements.

If a plan issues a denial:

  1. The denial should be reviewed, along with the health insurance plan’s guidelines to determine what to include in your patient’s appeal submission.
  2. Your IFRM or Genentech Rheumatology Access Solutions Specialist has local payer coverage expertise and can help you determine specific requirements for your patient.

A sample appeal letter and additional considerations for appeals are available in Forms and Documents.

Appeals cannot be completed or submitted by Genentech Rheumatology Access Solutions on your behalf.
