Reminder: Changes to timely filing requirements for Medicare Advantage
As a reminder, effective September 1, 2019, we will amend the Medicare Advantage Attachment of your Empire Provider Agreement(s) to require the submission of all professional claims within ninety (90) days of the date of service. This means all claims submitted on and after October 1, 2019, will be subject to a ninety- (90) day timely filing requirement, and Empire will refuse payment if the claims you file to us are submitted more than ninety (90) days after the date of service.
Please note that all claims for commercial plans must continue to be submitted within 120 days of the date of service, and will be processed by Empire, in accordance with your Provider Agreement.
