This is the means by which medical providers are paid for the services they perform on their patients. The claim includes CPT codes describing the service, ICD-9 codes identifying the diagnosis, demographic data on the patient and subscriber, information on who performed the service, and finally, the amount of the charge. An insurance company usually has 30 to 45 days to make a payment decision on the claim.
