Request for Redetermination of Medicare Prescription Drug Denial

Because we, WellCare, denied your request for coverage of (or payment for) a prescription drug, you have the right to ask us for a redetermination (appeal) of our decision. You have 60 days from the date of our Notice of Denial of Medicare Prescription Drug Coverage to ask us for a redetermination. This form may be sent to us by mail or fax:

WellCare Health Plans
P.O.Box 31383
Tampa, FL 33631
Fax Number:

You may also ask us for an appeal through our website at Expedited appeal requests can be made by phone at 1-866-800-6111.

Who May Make a Request:

Your prescriber may ask us for an appeal on your behalf. If you want another individual (such as a family member or friend) to request an appeal for you, that individual must be your representative. Contact us to learn how to name a representative.

Important Note: Expedited Decisions

If you or your prescriber believe that waiting 7 days for a standard decision could seriously harm your life, health, or ability to regain maximum function, you can ask for an expedited (fast) decision. If your prescriber indicates that waiting 7 days could seriously harm your health, we will automatically give you a decision within 72 hours. If you do not obtain your prescriber's support for an expedited appeal, we will decide if your case requires a fast decision. You cannot request an expedited appeal if you are asking us to pay you back for a drug you already received.

Up to 10 individual files can be attached.
Attached files cannot exceed a total size of 100.0 MB.
