From Medicare website you can download the form. For Florida state, I have given the link.

Indicate your reason for completing this form by checking the appropriate box: New EFT authorization or change to your

If you are authorizing EFT payments to the home office of a chain organization of which you are a member, you must attach a letter authorizing the contractor to make payment due the provider of service to the account maintained by the home office of the chain organization. The letter must be signed by an authorized official of the provider of service and an authorized official of the chain home office.
