    • Evidence of coverage: statement from the company and/or a copy of a health insurance card indicating coverage for the reimbursement period requested.
    • Proof of payment: copies of cancelled checks (front and back), front of checks with copies of banks statements, credit card statements and/or a letter from the insurance company indicating receipt of monthly premiums paid.
  • If you are enrolled in Medicare, you must provide a photocopy of your Medicare card and your Part D insurance card (if applicable) the first time you file a claim and upon request thereafter.
