"TIME OF PAYMENT OF CLAIMS: Indemnities payable under this policy for any loss other than loss for which this policy provides any periodic payment will be paid immediately upon receipt of due written proof of such loss. Subject to due written proof of loss, all accrued indemnities for loss for which this policy provides periodic payment will be paid .... (insert period for payment which must not be less frequently than monthly) and any balance remaining unpaid upon the termination of liability, will be paid immediately upon receipt of due written proof."
All claims and indemnities payable under the terms of a policy of accident and health insurance shall be paid within 30 days following receipt by the insurer of due proof of loss.

An insured or an insured's assignee shall be notified by the insurer, health maintenance organization, managed care plan, health care plan, preferred provider organization, or third party administrator of any known failure to provide sufficient documentation for a due proof of loss within 30 days after receipt of the claim. Any required interest payments shall be made within 30 days after the payment.
