What is an appeal?

Banner members have the right to file a “reconsideration” when Banner makes a coverage decision and you are not satisfied with this decision, you can “appeal” the decision. An appeal is a formal way of asking us to review a coverage decision again and possibly change the initial decision in your favor.

You, an appointed representative, or your provider may file an appeal on your behalf.

How to request an appeal?

Start by calling, writing, or faxing us. You, your representative, or your doctor (or other prescriber) can do this. You may call our Customer Care Center if you have questions about filing a grievance.
