Please review all of the instructions thoroughly before you complete the forms. Pages 5 - 7 of the Instructions will guide you in determining which category of requester best describes you. All of the applicable forms must be filled out completely. You may use as many Authorization Forms as you need. Please be aware that the CICP must receive all medical records from each health care provider as described in the instructions, before the review for eligibility can begin.
If you download the forms from this website, please print them and submit the hard copies either by U.S. mail or by fax. At this time, the CICP cannot accept electronic submissions.
