Preauthorization Request Form

A Hyperhidrosis Preauthorization Request Form may be copied or printed from below and used to notify an insurance organization that a patient has been diagnosed with hyperhidrosis, and to demonstrate the degree to which his or her life is negatively affected by excessive sweating. There is also space on the form for you to note hyperhidrosis treatments that the patient already tried and the next treatment that you are recommending. The form should be completed and submitted to the appropriate health insurance organization by the treating physician.
