Slow Paying Insurance
Retiree insured by State of Illinois. State is taking 9 months to pay medical bills for covered services that have been already approved by Cigna. I have paid the co-pay listed on the EOBs. Doctors office threatening to send to collections unless we pay first and they will reimburse us when the State pays them. They will get their $ but they don't want to wait. What effect will these have on our credit if they go to collections?
