Certificates of Medical Necessity

To expedite the medical review process for certain requests, Florida Blue provides Certificate of Medical Necessity (CMN) forms to our Providers. Each CMN is associated with one of Florida Blue’s Medical Coverage Guidelines (MCG). CMNs offer Providers a way to attest to information within a member’s medical documentation, rather than requiring the Provider to send that documentation to Florida Blue.

A list of available CMNs and their associated MCGs appears below.

Additionally, a blue document symbol will appear in the top left corner of each associated MCG following the 9-digit MCG policy number. This indicates an MCG has an associated CMN. Information about each CMN is located in the Position Statement section in each MCG.
