Reconciliation - Payment Reports
The MoH accepts claims for processing up to the 18th of the month and deposits payment on the 10th business day of the following month. All claims should be submitted to the MoH on a weekly basis so that the maximum amount of claims is processed by the cut-off date.
Reconciliation is a monthly process to determine which claims were paid in full and/or adjusted payments and which claims were not paid. Reconciliation helps to understand why the MoH made the adjustments and which unpaid claims can be corrected and resubmitted to the MoH.
