Anthem Blue Cross ordered to stop trying to collect old overpayments
Sacramento Business Journal

State regulators ordered Anthem Blue Cross on Monday to stop trying to collect millions in reimbursement from providers for medical claims the health plan thinks were overpaid. California law allows health plans to seek reimbursement for overpaid medical claims within a year of the payment date. If a plan wants to collect on claims more than a year old, it must demonstrate fraud or misrepresentation by the provider.
