70 What do I do if I get a denial pertaining to a Prior Authorization?
Access the Web Portal’s Prior Authorization inquiry. Verify the PA/Claim discrepancy the denial pertains to. Make claim corrections or follow up with your respective authorizing agency to have PA information changed/corrected.

71 Timely Filing

72 Timely Filing Limits 90 days from the date of service for all providers.   Exceptions to the 90 day timely filing limit: Schools, the filing limits are 120 days for the initial filing period and 120 days for the grace period (rather than 90 days). IHS and Tribal 638 compact facilities, the filing limit is 2 years from the date of service with no additional grace period.

73 Timely Filing Limits For a claim which met the initial filing period, but was denied, partially denied, or requires an adjustment, there is an additional one-time 90 day grace period counted from the date of payment or denial, during which the claim can be re-filed or an adjustment submitted to Xerox. It is to the provider’s advantage to resubmit a claim, if necessary, within the initial 90 day filing period in order to have the greatest amount of time in which to re-file or submit an adjustment during the 90 day grace period if another re-filing or adjustment is necessary.

74 Timely Filing Limits The claim may be re-filed during the 90-day grace period as many times as necessary, but claims filed after the 90 day grace period will be denied.

75 Timely Filing Limits Exceptions to the filing limit: When other primary payers have denied or made payment on a claim, the filing limit of 90-days is counted from the date of payment or denial by the other party, but not to exceed 210 days from the date of service. A provider should file claims in sufficient time with other payers to allow submission in time to meet the Medicaid 210 day limit. When the recipient has retroactive eligibility, the initial filing limit is 120 days from the date the eligibility was added to the eligibility file and was therefore available to providers.

76 Timely Filing Denials Exceptions to the filing limit: When the provider was not originally enrolled as a MAD provider on the date of service, the filing limit of 90 days is counted from the date the provider was notified of their enrollment, but must not exceed 210 days from the date of service. A provider should submit a provider participation agreement in sufficient time to allow processing and still meet the Medicaid 210 day limit for submitting the claim. When a claim previously paid by a Medicaid managed care organization is recouped from a provider due to retroactive disenrollment of the client from the managed care organization, the filing limit of 90 days is counted from the date of the managed care organization’s notice or recoupment from the provider.

77 Timely Filing Denials Re-filing Claims and Submitting Adjustments When resubmitting a claim or requesting an adjustment on a claim that is past the 90 day filing limit but originally met the filing limit, the “TCN” number which appears on the remittance advice (RA) will be used by Xerox to evaluate the claim. The provider must supply that TCN number in order for Xerox to be able to evaluate the claim.

78 Re-filing Claims and Submitting Adjustments
Timely Filing Denials Re-filing Claims and Submitting Adjustments CMS 1500 form: Put the TCN in block 22 on the paper form. Leave the “Code” blank, and put the TCN in the “Original Reference No.” field. UB Form: Put the TCN in Form Locator 64 “Document Control Number” (DCN) matching the appropriate payer line, using a paper form. Dental Claim Form: Enter the TCN number in Box 35 beginning on the left side.

79 Timely Filing Helpful Hints
There are two filing limits to meet - the initial filing limit and the grace period limit. Continuing to re-file a claim does not continue to extend the filing limit. It is to the provider’s advantage to file or request an adjustment on the most recently filed claim that met the original filing limit. When requesting an adjustment on an adjusted claim, use the TCN of the final payment or denial, not the credit record which has a negative amount on the RA. The filing limit does not apply when the provider is returning an overpayment to the Medicaid program. When submitting a paper claim each claim needs a cover letter and any necessary attachments explaining what the claim.

80 Electronic Claim Submissions

81 Electronic Claim Submission
All Fee For Service claims within 90 days from the initial date of service that do not require an attachment for payment must be submitted electronically. For any assistance regarding Electronic Claims Submissions, contact the HIPAA Helpdesk. or call
