How Often Should You Submit OHIP Claims? The Answer Might Surprise You

As a healthcare provider, submitting OHIP claims is an essential part of your practice’s revenue cycle. However, the question of how often you should submit claims may not have a straightforward answer. In this post, we’ll explore some factors to consider when deciding on a submission schedule, and how using YES OHIP Billing Software can streamline the process for you.

Firstly, it’s important to note that OHIP does not have a requirement for how frequently claims must be submitted. However, it’s generally recommended to submit claims as soon as possible after a service is provided to avoid delayed payment and potential errors. MOH has changed the submission date for services rendered from 6 months to 3 months. Submitting daily or weekly gives you the best chance to fix errors and get paid. Submitting and receiving files monthly leaves you with the least amount of time to fix errors and increasing your chances of stale dated claims. The right frequency for your practice will depend on factors like your patient volume, staff resources, and needs.

Using YES OHIP Billing Software can simplify and expedite the submission process regardless of your chosen frequency. Use our Quick Bill and other features to streamline the process.
