Overpayment Process

Claims identified as overpayments are shown as Provider Adjustments on your ERA and in the Future Offset detail section of mailed remittances. The amounts of these payments are not factored into the check/EFT that you receive notice on. If you feel the refund is being requested in error, please contact Provider Relations within 45 days of being notified to avoid an offset. Claims are automatically corrected and reprocessed, resulting in an offset approximately 60 days after receiving notice on a remittance.
