      You know, it's true. Medicare tells you anywhere from 30 to 45 days.
      But it can be an even longer wait.

      > Have you called the EDI help desk? (877-273-4334). We were having a
      long wait for a new doctor to be linked to our agency, and the people at
      the MC help desk said last week that things were delayed due to high
      winds from the remnants of H. Ike. Although they are in Ohio, the winds
      knocked out the power for a while and things came to a standstill. Of
      course, this could have absolutely nothing to due with your concern,
      probably not. But I would keep on top of them. It's my understanding
      that you file the claims and they will be processed retroactively, but
      ask EDI. Our new doc also had 1 digit missing from one of the forms and
      that presented a delay. The squeaky wheel gets the grease!
