Superior will send you a letter if a requested service is denied or limited. If you disagree with the decision, you may file an appeal. You can appeal the action if you think Superior:

  • Is stopping coverage for care you think you/your child needs.
  • Is denying coverage for care you think should be covered.
  • Has not paid for some or all of a service or a hospital bill.
  • Limits a request for a covered service.

You, a doctor or someone else acting on your behalf can appeal an action. Or, a Superior Member Services Advocate can help you file an appeal.

You will have thirty (30) days from the date of the denial letter to appeal the decision. Superior will acknowledge your appeal within five (5) days of receipt, and complete the appeal within thirty (30) days. This process can be extended up to fourteen (14) days if you ask for an extension. If more time is needed for Superior to gather facts about the requested service, you will receive a letter with the reason for the delay.
