118 union with, the sexual organ of another or the anal or vaginal

146 or electronic billing instrument submitted to the department
147 that consists of the HCFA 1500 data set, or its successor, which
148 has all mandatory entries for a physician licensed under chapter
149 458, chapter 459, chapter 460, chapter 461, or chapter 463, or
150 psychologists licensed under chapter 490 or any appropriate
151 billing instrument that has all mandatory entries for any other
152 noninstitutional provider.
153 (b) “Claim” means, for an institutional provider, a paper
154 or electronic billing instrument submitted to the department
155 which consists of the UB-92 data set or its successor that has

158 (2)(a) A claim for payment or underpayment is considered
159 submitted on the date the claim for payment is mailed or
160 electronically transferred to the department by the provider.
161 (b) A claim for overpayment is considered submitted on the
162 date the claim for overpayment is mailed or electronically
163 transferred to the provider by the department.
164 (3)(a) A claim for payment or underpayment must be
165 submitted to the department within 6 months after:
166 1. Discharge of the offender from the inpatient service or
167 the date of service for the outpatient service to the offender;
169 2. The provider has been furnished with the correct name
170 and address of the department.
171 (b) The department is not obligated to pay a claim for
172 payment or underpayment which was not submitted in accordance
173 with paragraph (a).
174 (c) A claim for payment or underpayment must not duplicate
175 a claim previously submitted unless it is determined the
176 original claim for payment or underpayment was not received or
177 is otherwise lost.
178 (4)(a) If the department determines that it has made an
179 overpayment to a provider for services rendered to an inmate, it
180 must deliver its claim for the overpayment to the location
181 officially designated by the provider. The department shall
182 provide a written or electronic statement specifying the basis
183 for the alleged overpayment. The department must identify the
184 claim or claims for which the claim for overpayment is
186 (b) The department must submit a claim for overpayment to a
187 provider within 30 months after the department pays the claim.

190 convicted of fraud under s. 817.234.
191 (c) A provider is not obligated to pay an alleged claim for
192 overpayment if the claim for overpayment was not submitted in

203 the claim for overpayment.
204 (f) All contested claims for overpayment must be paid or
205 denied within 120 days after the provider receives the claim for

207 within 140 days after receiving the claim creates an
208 uncontestable obligation to pay the claim.
209 (g) The department may not reduce payment to a provider for
210 other services rendered to the department unless the provider
211 agrees to the reduction or fails to respond to the claim for
212 overpayment as required by this subsection.
