All appeals must include: 

  1. The name of the member
  2. The member’s social security number
  3. The group name or identification number
  4. A statement in clear and concise terms of the reason or reasons for disagreement with the handling of the claim
  5. Any material or information that the member has which indicates that the member is entitled to benefits under the plan
