Question
Hi Alice and Michelle,

Its me again!  What would the approximate aging for payment on a Workers Comp claim providing it was a clean bill when it left our office?

I feel that 120 days Plus is a little too long
Thank you,

Deborah D

Hi Debi,

We file a lot of workers comp claims and find a huge difference in the length of time it takes between different companies.  We have a few workers comp carriers that pay within 30 day very few.  Some consistently are 90 days.  120 is too long.  I would definitely be calling before 120 days.  When I run my aging reports, I check to see how long the previous payments took and judge whether or not to call by how long it took last time.
