Timely
Filing Limit
for
Medicare

Medicare has now a timely filing limit of 12 months for all claims being
submitted for physician and other Part B services.

Any claims from the Date of Service January 01, 2010 and after has a
12-months timely filing limit.

So make sure your claims will be filed within that 12 months timely filing
limit.

This also applies if Medicare is Secondary Payer.

Please read more on this guidelines here -
CMS Pub. 100-04, Chapter 1,
Section 70.8, 70.8.6, 70.8.9

I hope this helps.
