For all other benefits, claims will be processed as a priority and in the majority of cases they will receive the highest rate of benefit.

In this circumstance the form should be issued on request to the representative. The form asks for factual information and does not require you to give a prognosis. Please use language that you would normally use when communicating with other clinicians.
