Attending Physician's Statement (APS) Law and Legal Definition

An attending physician statement (APS) is a report covering information about medical history and results of medical examinations conducted by a physician, hospital or medical facility who has treated, or who is currently treating, a patient seeking insurance. APS is an expensive as well as time consuming underwriting requirement. Completion of an APS takes weeks or even months and it is usually completed only when a doctor has free time.
