Returned to Provider (RTP) Help

Claims that are Returned To Provider (RTP) are considered unprocessable. Provider corrections and resubmission of an RTP claim will apply a new receipt date to the claim. A new receipt date changes the date the claim processes for payment as well as the date interest begins to apply. Claims that RTP, which are not corrected and resubmitted by the provider recycle into Noridian, are inactivated every 60 days by the datacenter. Consequently, providers will need to submit a new claim if this occurs. The following list contains common reason codes why claims are RTP for correction.
