Claim Resubmission Guide (Frequency Codes 7 & 8)
We process most claims within 30 days of their receipt. However, in some cases, we may need additional information to process your claim. If you don’t receive final payment and claim disposition in a timely manner (within 30-45 days of our receipt of your claim), please use an electronic technology to check your claim’s status.
We have electronic claim crossover arrangements with select Medicare Administrative Contractors. When we are secondary to Medicare, you can eliminate the submission of duplicate claims by first checking claim status after you have received the Medicare Part A/Part B explanation of benefits (EOB). Please allow up to a week after you receive the Medicare EOB to confirm we have the claim.
