New Jersey care provider dispute process
Disputes involving New Jersey commercial members are subject to the New Jersey state-regulated health care provider dispute process.
The state-regulated health care provider dispute process does not apply in the following situations:
Our determination involves a UM denial. UM denials are refusals to pay a claim or to authorize a service or supply because we have determined the service or supply is one of the following:
Not medically necessary
Experimental or investigational
Dental rather than medical
Treatment of a pre-existing condition.
UM denials include prescription quantity limit denials and requests for in-plan exception denials. You may appeal a UM denial by going through the Internal UM Appeals Process described under the Member Complaints and Grievances section. You must submit a completed Consent to Representation in Appeals of Utilization Management Determinations and Authorization for Release of Medical Records in UM Appeals and Independent Arbitration of Claims form to begin the UM appeal process.
Our determination indicates we denied the service or supply as not covered under the terms of the plan or because the person is not our member.
The dispute is due to COB.
We have provided you notice that we are investigating this claim (and related ones, as appropriate) for possible fraud.
The process does apply for the following situations:
The claim was not paid for any reason other than previously listed.
The claim was paid at a rate you did not expect based on your network contract or the terms of the plan.
The claim was paid at a rate you did not expect because of differences in our treatment of the codes in the claim from what you believe is appropriate.
We required additional substantiating documentation to support the claim, and you believe the required information is inconsistent with our stated claims handling policies and procedures or is not relevant to the claim.
You believe we failed to adjudicate the claim, or an uncontested portion of a claim, in a timely manner consistent with law and the terms of your network contract, if any.
Our denial was due to lack of appropriate authorization, but you believe you obtained appropriate authorization from us or another carrier for the services.
You believe we failed to appropriately pay interest on the claim.
You believe our statement that we overpaid on 1 or more claims. A claim is erroneous or the amount we calculated as overpaid is erroneous.
You believe we have attempted to offset an inappropriate amount against a claim because of an effort to recoup for an overpayment on prior claims.
If the dispute is eligible, the following process will apply:
Submit a written request for appeal using the Health Care Provider Application to Appeal a Claims Determination Form created by the New Jersey Department of Banking and Insurance. Submit the request within 90 days following receipt of our initial determination notice to:
