Please check the Health Mainframe Portal (black screen) for notification of any changes.

One submission file will be processed per weekday (before 5:00 p.m.) and one on a weekend (after 5:00 p.m. Friday, prior to 10:00 p.m. Sunday) from each user site. EPiCS cut-off times are 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10:00 p.m. Sunday (or Monday on a long weekend).

Health strongly recommends frequent claims submission (daily, if possible) to reduce your risk of missing a payment cycle. Always check the Audit Control Confirmation Report (P1), the next day, to verify acceptance of submission files. Acceptance of a file does not guarantee payment in full for the claims submitted. The claims must still follow normal processing. File acceptance only applies to the data integrity of the telecommunicated records.
