CNA has gone 6 weeks without paying my home nurse. They consistently loose faxed in time sheets, then claim they never received the fax, even though your fax says they did, then they refused to expedite the checks, even though a supervisor in their own customer service department asked them to!
Unprofessional and difficult
My experience in getting a claim resolved was extremely poor. They don't do e-mail. The claims handler was unprofessional and handled communication poorly.
Getting CNA Long Term Care to pay my husband's bills is a nightmare. They ceased his waiver of premium benefit even though he had two unpaid bills. There is always a form missing or not filled out correctly as a reason for non-payment even though they are billed consistently every month. I spend many hours on the phone getting the run-around from CNA. Reimbursement is taking three months even though they say they process in 10-14 days.
