Submitting your claims to AHCIP on time is very important to ensure you get paid for the services you provide.
AHCIP pays six months to date of service (180 days).
If you're resubmitting a claim, it must be received within 180 days from the date of the last Statement of Assessment on which the claim appeared.
Note: A resubmitted claim is not payable if it is resubmitted more than 180 days after the last transaction for that claim.
AHCIP has a very strict over-age policy. Outdated claims are only accepted under extenuating circumstances (such as flood, fire, fraud, etc.), otherwise they will usually go unpaid. If you wish to submit an outdated claim, you have to first send a written request to Alberta Health (to the attention of the Claims Management unit) outlining why you believe extenuating circumstances apply. Your request will be considered and a written reply provided, including resubmission instructions, if applicable.
Please refer to section 4.4 of the current physicians’ resource guide for additional information.
