    Medicare’s timely filing was 1 year as of January of 2010 and we just got letters from Cigna stating that they’ve gone to a 90-day timely filing policy. Is your information newer or older than what I have?

  2. Thanks for drafting useful information :smile:

  3. Hi Barbara,, it all depends on the Insurance plan,,,, like Cigna Insurance general filing limit is 180 days but there are some plans which have 90 days filing limit :smile:

    out-of-network claims submitted six (6) months [180 days] after the date of service

  15. enter correct information next time i dn’t want such incorrect info.

  16. Ins Cigna….
    –>participating health care professional claims submitted three (3) months [90 days] after the date of service;
    –>out-of-network claims submitted six (6) months [180 days] after the date of service.


  17. Per HUMANA Commercial Claims must be submitted within the time stipulated in the provider agreement or the applicable state law.
    Generally, these claims must be submitted within:
    *180 days from the date of service for physicians
    *90 days from the date of service for facilities and ancillary providers
    MEDICARE Advantage:Claims must be submitted within one calendar year from the date of service.

  23. Stimulants like cocaine boost heart price and blood

  24. AA has a term “dry drunk,” that applies to someone who has quit drinking and is not in recovery.
