A letter of medical necessity is a document that is usually issue by a medical professional on behalf of a patient seeking reimbursement for a medical procedure. There are very common for medical procedures that are not covered under standard health care plans, so it is necessary for a special request to be made. The recipients of these letters are usually health insurance companies or health care provision companies.
