Timely Filing Period for Paper and Electronic Claims
Claims must be submitted with all required information within 365 days (or the time period specified in your Provider Agreement) of the date on which the service was rendered. For institutional claims that include span dates of service, the "Through" date on the claim will be used to determine the date of service for timely filing. For professional claims submitted by physicians and other suppliers that include span dates of service (such as supplies and rental items), the line item "From" will be used to determine the date of service for timely filing. If a line item "From" date is not timely, but the "To" date is timely, Bravo Health will split the line item and deny untimely services as not timely filed.
