Worker’s Comp (“WC”) was billed on December 18, 2018, and on January 9, 2019, Facility received correspondence requesting the submission of patient medical records as well as the actual claim. WC stated that requested documents were not submitted until mid-April 2019, and denied for timely filing.
MAS contacted WC and presented the argument that in the state where the services were rendered, there is no timely filing requirements for an original bill. It was discovered that the submission of the requested documentation was processed as a Reconsideration Request, and not an original bill. MAS worked with the WC adjuster to appeal for an override of the denial on the basis that the facility was submitting requested documentation and that a timely filing denial was not applicable. Following several discussions between MAS and the WC adjuster, the WC system was updated to reflect the submission of medical records and the original bill.
WC remitted $9,457.94 payment in compliance with the State fee schedule for WC on May 8, 2020.
