The Illinois Department of Central Management Services (CMS) updated its Claim Payment Delay website with additional details on claim release dates for insurance plans impacted by the state’s delay in paying health and dental claims.
If you are waiting on an insurance claim to be paid, you can once again check this website to see the state’s progress on claim determinations and/or payments.
At this time, the page lists claim release dates for the Quality Care Health Plan (QCHP) with Cigna, the two Open Access Plans (OAPs) with HealthLink and Coventry, and the Quality Care Dental Plan (QCDP) with Delta Dental. As a participant in one of these plans, you can now view the dates of claim determinations and/or payments being released.
Please see also Delta Dental's recent announcement about releasing nine weeks of the oldest state dental insurance claims.
If you have a question about a specific claim, or questions about the claim delay in general, please contact your plan administrator.
University of Illinois leadership and the University Office of Governmental Relations have worked throughout the summer and fall to advocate on behalf of faculty and staff on these important healthcare issues, and will continue to do so.
