Emergency Rule: Chapter 1, Timely Filing Change

August 30, 2011

An emergency rule will be filed for MaineCare Benefits Manual, Chapter 1, General Administrative Policies and Procedures. Under the emergency rule, the time limit for filing certain claims has been extended.

The emergency rule reads: “For claims with dates of service September 1, 2010 through February 28, 2011, the submission deadline is March 1, 2012 or one year from the date of service, whichever is later.”

The timely filing limit extension is meant for claims that were delayed or processed incorrectly due to system problems. Providers are encouraged to submit all claims within one year of the date of service.

If you have questions about submitting claims, please contact Provider Services at 1-866-690-5585.
