Many websites provide samples of appeal letters, including GreatSampleResumes.com, which offers letters for a wide range of appeals, including academic, employment and insurance appeals. The Patient Advocate Foundation at PatientAdvocate.org displays samples of appeal letters to health insurance companies.
Chron.com provides guidelines for writing an appeal letter, which is typically a response to a decision the writer wants to reverse. It should be written using a professional letter format and must begin by identifying the decision to appeal. All relevant events or facts and then state the desired outcome should also be stated. Writers should explain when an answer should be provided and then thank the reader for reviewing the appeal letter.
