I just wanted to be sure you were aware of another decrease in amount of days to submit a claim.
Timely filing for ANY Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield plan is now 90 days from date of service.
This is a major adjustment in the past year and one-half. In 2018, we had 12 months, in 2019 we had 6 months and now we only have 3 months. Please get charges into to us as quickly as possible. We cannot fight timely filing.
Remember, when we receive your charge, we then have to scan it into our system, do the data entry, do cleanup of original claim, then submit it through the clearinghouse. This all takes time, approximately 2 – 3 days. We do try to keep that number lower, but can’t always promise it.
Again, this is just one more example of insurances decreasing their timely filing limits and it behooves us all to submit claims early!!
