    The Maryland Department of Information Technology (“DoIT”) offers translations of the content through Google Translate. Because Google Translate is an external website, DoIT does not control the quality or accuracy of translated content. All DoIT content is filtered through Google Translate which may result in unexpected and unpredictable degradation of portions of text, images and the general appearance on translated pages. Google Translate may maintain unique privacy and use policies. These policies are not controlled by DoIT and are not associated with DoIT’s privacy and use policies. After selecting a translation option, users will be notified that they are leaving DoIT’s website. Users should consult the original English content on DoIT’s website if there are any questions about the translated content.

    DoIT uses Google Translate to provide language translations of its content. Google Translate is a free, automated service that relies on data and technology to provide its translations. The Google Translate feature is provided for informational purposes only. Translations cannot be guaranteed as exact or without the inclusion of incorrect or inappropriate language. Google Translate is a third-party service and site users will be leaving DoIT to utilize translated content. As such, DoIT does not guarantee and does not accept responsibility for, the accuracy, reliability, or performance of this service nor the limitations provided by this service, such as the inability to translate specific files like PDFs and graphics (e.g. .jpgs, .gifs, etc.).

    DoIT provides Google Translate as an online tool for its users, but DoIT does not directly endorse the website or imply that it is the only solution available to users. All site visitors may choose to use alternate tools for their translation needs.

    Time Limits - Submitting Invoices

    Billing Time Statute

    You must submit a clean claim to the Maryland Medical Assistance Program within 12 months of the date of service (for acute hospitals—date of discharge). A clean claim is an original, correctly completed claim that is ready to process. Submit claims immediately after providing services.

    Exceptions to Time Statute

    Exceptions to the claim submission statute can be made under the following circumstances:

    • The claim was filed within statute previously, but denied by the Program due to provider error

    SOLUTION: Resubmit the corrected claim through normal claims processing channels, including documentation of original timely submission (copy of Remittance Advice). Corrected claim must be received within 60 days of the last rejection.

    • Retroactive eligibility is determined by the local Department of Social Services

    SOLUTION: Submit the claim through normal claims processing channels, including documentation of retroactive eligibility (IMA 81 –Notice of Retro eligibility). Claim must be received within 12 months of the eligibility decision date.

    • A claim was submitted to Medicare as the primary payer

    SOLUTION: Submit the claim with a copy of the Medicare EOMB through normal claims processing channels. Be sure to place recipient and provider numbers in the required Medicaid fields. Claim must be received within 120 days from the date of Medicare EOMB

    NOTE: When a claim is past 12 months from the date of service statute, documentation “MUST” be attached. If this is not done, the system automatically rejects that claim
