I am a Medical Provider and have received a Distribution Check from the Department. What is this check for?
Your claim was adjudicated by a third party administrator (PayerFusion). The administrator sent out remittance advices monthly as the claims were adjudicated. The check is a cumulative total of the individual claims submitted. If claims were submitted with multiple NPIs and/or multiple billing addresses, they may have been evaluated separately and you may receive more than one check.
Is there a deadline for cashing the Distribution check?
Yes. The deadline for cashing the check is 90 days after the issuance date.
Funds related to any uncashed check after the deadline will be submitted to the Bureau of Unclaimed Property.
Do I receive interest for my distribution?
For companies placed into receivership on or after July 1, 2012, Section 631.271(j), Florida Statutes, authorizes the payment of interest on claims in Classes 1-9 prior to making any payment on shareholder claims. The Receiver projects having sufficient assets to pay partial interest on allowed claims in Classes 1-9. The interest rate is calculated in accordance with Section 55.03(3), Florida Statutes, and starts from the date of the Liquidation Order ("April 1, 2013"), and accrues until the date the Receivership Court approves the distribution. Judgment interest rates are published each year on January 1st and can be found at https://www.myfloridacfo.com/Division/AA/LocalGovernments/Historical.htm
Please note that distributions are made through-out the life cycle of the Estate.
