Suspended claims

A suspended claim is a claim that has been received, that requires review before final adjudication. When a claim appears as suspended on your remittance advice (RA), the ICN assigned to the claim will remain the same throughout the processing cycle. You should post the claim as received by MassHealth. Do not rebill the claim while it is in suspense. The suspended claim will appear on a subsequent RA as paid or denied.
