Urgent claims are claims in which the time periods for making non-urgent determination could:

  • Seriously jeopardize the member's life or health or the member's ability regain maximum function, or 
  • In the opinion of a physician with knowledge of the member's medical condition, would subject the member to severe pain that cannot be adequately managed without the care of treatment that is the subject of the claim.
