Timely Payments of “Clean Claims”

RESOLVED, That the North Carolina Medical Society supports a definition of “clean claims” and measures requiring all third-party payors to adhere strictly to a prompt payment process. Penalties to third-party payors for delaying payment should include full payment plus interest, followed by fines on a per case basis.
