Providers shall only submit one invoice per month per participant to ensure timely reimbursements can be made. Billing for services must be submitted within 180 days from when services are provided. If it is past 180 days from when services are provided, reimbursement will be forfeited.

Provider reimbursements will be paid in the PPS once per calendar month between the first and the fifth working day.
