Medicaid Expansion Timely Filing Extension

Due to the recent Change HealthCare cyber-attack, BCBSND Medicaid Expansion will be extending the timely filing submission requirement.

BCBSND will be aligning our timely filing extension with the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) as noted in their April 8 update. This will apply for claims with dates of service on or after Sept. 21, 2023.

Claims with the outlined service dates must be submitted by either June 25, 2024, or the regular timely filing deadline of 180 calendar days from the date of service, whichever is later.

Providers should continue to file electronically through the established connection with Change HealthCare or through Availity Essentials. If you need to discuss alternative routes of submission, please contact Provider Services.

We expect the volume of impacted past claims to be low. We will review claim data information for this situation and proceed with the next steps accordingly. We will provide more details directly to impacted providers once they are available.
