Last week, the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Oklahoma looked at cutting insurance reimbursements by up to 30 percent.

This concern accounts for over 17 percent of all policyholder complaints. Under Oklahoma state law, insurance companies must either pay or deny your claim within 45 calendar days. But what should you do if 45 days have passed and you have not received payment or have received only a partial amount?
