Form Purposes


A verification form may be requested when an individual with a chronic condition is making a claim with their insurance company. In other cases, this form is requested by insurance providers to preauthorize treatments and procedures or to renew ongoing medical coverage.

Educational Institutions

When a student has a chronic condition, the school may send a verification form to their physician to confirm the illness. The form may ask for symptoms and other medical information so they can prepare for the student’s periodic absence throughout the school year.


A verification form is used by some employers to establish an employee’s legitimate disability when they make requests for special assistance, benefits, or other services in the workplace.

Government Agencies / Nonprofit Organizations

Governmental or nonprofit entities may ask for chronic condition verification when someone applies for disability benefits or other financial/medical assistance from social security offices, disability services, or other assistance and support organizations.
