Designated Holidays and Close-Off Dates

When practitioners are preparing to submit their claims to MSP, it is important to note the MSP-designated holidays and close-off dates as they impact claims submission. Designated holidays impact certain claims such as the Out-of-Office Hours Premiums fee items while close-off dates are the designated semi-monthly cut-offs for claims submission through Teleplan. Claims should be submitted by close-off dates in order to be processed on the next remittance statement.
