In Alberta you have 180 days from the date of service to submit your claim. Unless you have an extenuating circumstance your claim will not be payable. For example, outdated claims resulting from disasters (fire,flood), fraud, stolen records (electronic/paper) or claims that have been refused by WCB may be taken into consideration.A resubmitted claim is not payable if it is resubmitted more than 180 days after the last transaction for that claim.

If you go over that 180 day period and you believe you have an extenuating circumstance you will need to send a written request to Alberta Health to the Claims Management Unit.780.422.1600

If the Claims Management Unit gives you permission to submit an out of date claim, it will be sent as per a regular claim.
