Responding to Medical Review Additional Documentation Requests

The Forms tab within myCGS includes an option to allow users to submit documentation in response to additional development requests (ADRs) received from our medical review (MR) department. This option is offered as a convenience to you to facilitate an accurate and timely response to our requests. Responses to MR ADRs must be received within 30 days of the date on the request (effective April 1, 2015, this timeframe will change to 45 days per MM8583).
