Ama Policy

Required Timely Reimbursements by all Health Insurers H-190.981

Prompt Payment Deadlines

Our AMA will prepare and/or seek sponsorship of legislation calling for all health insurance entities and third party payers–inclusive of not-for-profit organizations and health maintenance organizations–to pay for “clean” claims when filed electronically within 14 days and paper claims within 30 days, with interest accruing thereafter. These time periods should be considered ceilings, not floors or fixed differentials between paper and electronic claims.
