Health Notes

Submit 2016 Empire Plan claims by April 30

By Lorraine Simpkins
If the Empire Plan is your primary insurer, April 30, 2017 (120 days after the end of the calendar year), is the last day to submit your 2016 claims if you have used a non-participating provider or out-of-network pharmacy.

If The Empire Plan is your secondary insurer, you must submit claims by April 30, 2017, or within 120 days after your primary health insurance plan processes your claim, whichever is later.

You may submit claims later if it was not reasonably possible to meet the deadlines (for example, due to illness); however, you must provide documentation.

To obtain non-participating provider claim forms, ask your agency health benefits administrator or find them online at http://www.cs.ny.gov/employee-benefits. Just follow the prompts there to access NYSHIP Online and select Forms. Or, call 877-7-NYSHIP (877-769-7447) and choose the appropriate program.
