Chapter 1 Timely Filing Update

October 11, 2011

This is a follow up to our August 31, 2011 message regarding a Chapter 1 Emergency Rule for the timely filing limits. The Department will not be implementing this emergency rule, however, as Chapter 1 is currently adopted, the Department is able to waive timely filing requirements for claims that are impacted by:

  • Retroactive eligibility
  • Coordination of benefits involving another, primary, payer
  • Special circumstances as waived by the Department

If you have received a claim denial due to the timely filing limit you believe is related to the third example above, please contact your Provider Relations Specialist.
