Letters of Medical Necessity

The Healthcare Access and Financing, Medical Home and Education and Dissemination work groups of the NEGC compiled resources and links designed to assist families and providers with developing letters of medical necessity.

Sample Letters

For example:

My patient______________________ has been diagnosed with Aicardi syndrome. Aicardi syndrome is a genetic condition that typically includes developmental brain abnormalities, seizures, and differences in the retina. Intellectual disability, low muscle tone or hypotonia, visual impairment, and gastrointestinal issues such as constipation, diarrhea, and gastroesophageal reflux are common medical issues. Some individuals with Aicardi have problems regulating their body temperature and many have skin changes that can include cancerous growths.
