317:30-3-11.Timely filing limitation
[Revised 09-01-16]

(a) According to federal regulations, the Authority must require providers to submit all claims no later than 12 months from the date of service. Federal regulations provide no exceptions to this requirement. For dates of service provided on or after July 1, 2015, the timely filing limit, for SoonerCare reimbursement, is 6 months from the date of service. Payment will not be made on claims when more than 6 months have elapsed between the date the service was provided and the date of receipt of the claim by the Fiscal Agent. A denied claim can be considered proof of timely filing.

(b) Claims may be submitted anytime during the month.

(c) To be eligible for payment under SoonerCare, claims for coinsurance and/or deductible must meet the Medicare timely filing requirements. If a claim for payment under Medicare has been filed in a timely manner, the Fiscal Agent must receive a SoonerCare claim relating to the same services within 90 days after the agency or the provider receives notice of the disposition of the Medicare claim.
