Is there any success ever at getting medical or behavioral health claims paid when filing deadline is past due as a result of major misfortune like ones attention being devoted to hurricane Sandy renovation, mold re mediation, relocating, salvage and caring for elderly family? or additional life stressors to the extent that it compromises the claimants exective functioning skills significantly to the point of obtaining a pardon?
Would my reasons merit a pardon for being so late filing my behavioural health claims.
So far I called BCBS who gave me her name and said to send her the claims via fax to her attention... I asked if I should add my details with the claims and she said I can.......
But i am so afraid they won't be honoured because my spouses insurance changed before I had a chance to file the claims. It is for over $4000 that I need to get back and some of that i need to owe to the counselor for money owed for many sessions of unpaid support. That is too much money to lose. is there any law that helps people in this case in case they are all rejected? is there anything i can write in my defence that will definately work or a case that can be sited or referred to that will let them have to accept and pay retroactive benefits to me? haven't flood victims found themselves with similar difficulties?
