I am using Forms Based authentication in provider hosted app.

Once FBA user is logged in SharePoint site, I need to get the clientcontext in my app web (which is an MVC application) to check if the user is authenticated so that I can bypass the authentication at the app web level.

This initial set up to configure the trust and authentication between SharePoint and Provider MVC web application would require your patience. I would highly recommend to go through below blogs:

Using SharePoint Apps with SAML and FBA Sites in SharePoint 2013

I followed the below blog by Wictor Wilen to set up MVC App with SAML claim(Highly recommended !).

SharePoint 2013 with SAML Claims and Provider Hosted Apps

Good luck !
