A letter of justification is a letter written to justify a request. It is most common in the medical field, where patients will often write to their health care providers or their insurance companies requesting coverage for a specific treatment or medicine. Its purpose is to describe the benefits the patient will receive from the usage of the device or treatment, and describe how it is essential for their well being.

To Whom It May Concern:
Michael Green is a 15 year patient of our medical practice. He has been coming to us for the last 3 years seeking treatment for back pain. We have tried many different procedures, but nothing has seemed to work.
There is a new procedure available, (Information sheet attached) but it is not covered under his current health plan. We were wondering if there was any way to have this added so he can experience relief from his pain.
The treatment has worked on many people, and it has been approved by all the relevant health associations.
Please consider our request for this amendment to his health care plan.
Dr. Sanjay Grandi
