The Pennsylvania Health Law Project (PHLP) has a new resource for health care providers that explains how to write a strong letter of medical necessity when requesting Personal Assistance Services (PAS).
The brochure includes some sample language that may be useful in describing your medial opinion. The guide outlines seven key steps:
- Introduce Yourself and Why You’re Writing
- Describe Your Patient
- Explain WHY the Requested PAS Hours Are Medically Necessary
- Expand on Your Opinion With Helpful Details
- Restate Your Conclusion
- Sign, Date, & Deliver
