Effective March 2020, Alberta Health has updated the existing submission maximum of 180 days, down to 90 days from Date of Service.

Submitting your claims to AHCIP on time is very important to ensure you get paid for the services you provide.

If you're resubmitting a claim, it must be received within 90 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 90 days after the last transaction for that claim.

As AHCIP has a very strict over-age policy, submitting your claims to AHCIP on time is very important to ensure you get paid for the services you provide.

Outdated claims are only accepted under extenuating circumstances (such as flood, fire, fraud, etc.), otherwise, they will usually go unpaid. If you wish to submit an outdated claim, you have to first send a written request to Alberta Health (to the attention of the Claims Management unit) outlining why you believe extenuating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.

Happy Billing!
