We have a number of specialty-specific medical appeal letters to assist our specialty care clients with appeals related to their specific practice areas. These letters focus on demanding peer-to-peer reviews and release of clinical review criteria applicable to specialty care. There is also a letter specific to each specialty which seeks to have coding denials reviewed by a credentialed coder with familiarity with specialty coding.
