The SilverScript Medicare Part D Appeals Process (Redetermination)

What is a SilverScript Medicare Part D Appeal?

If you disagree with a decision we make in response to your original request for a Coverage Determination, you have the right to ask us for a Redetermination by submitting an Appeal. An Appeal is the process of asking us to reconsider our initial Coverage Determination decision. There are additional levels of SilverScript Medicare Part D Appeals available to you if you disagree with a Redetermination.


To request a Redetermination by phone1: Call toll-free, 1-866-235-5660, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. TTY users should call 1-866-236-1069.

To fax a written request for Redetermination: Fax toll free: 1-855-633-7673.

To mail a written request for Redetermination: SilverScript Insurance Company
MC109 P.O. Box 52000
Phoenix, AZ 85072-2000

Standard and Expedited Redetermination Requests

Standard Redetermination Request

We will make our decision on a standard request within 7 days of receipt.

Expedited Redetermination Request2

You have the option to make an expedited request (one that requires a faster response) if you or your doctor believe your health could be seriously harmed by waiting up to 7 days for a decision. If your request to expedite is granted, we will give you a decision no later than 72 hours after we receive your request and your doctor's written statement.

Note: If your doctor requests or supports your request for an expedited Redetermination and your doctor indicates that waiting for a standard decision could seriously harm your health or your ability to function, we will automatically give you a fast decision.
