MaineCare Payments Delay

January 17, 2012

MaineCare claims EFT (electronic fund transfer) payments may be delayed by one business day the week of January 17th. Providers who usually receive their EFT payments on Thursday would receive it on Friday. Providers will receive paper checks on their normal schedule. The claims system was shut down from January 13th through January 16th for an upgrade. The payment delay is due to the system shutdown. If there are any changes to the payment schedule, we will notify you as soon as possible. We appreciate your patience, as we improve the system and prepare for HIPAA Version 5010.
