Section 34-23-114

Denial of payment.

(a) No program administrator shall deny payment for services to any pharmacy which may have resulted from the fraudulent or illegal use of any identification card by any person unless the pharmacy has been notified that the card has been canceled or discontinued and that the program administrator has been unsuccessful in attempting to regain possession of the card.

(b) No program administrator shall withhold any payments to any pharmacy beyond the time period specified in the payment schedule provisions of the agreement, except that individual claims for payment may be returned to the pharmacy for reasons such as incomplete or illegible information and may then be resubmitted by the pharmacy to the program administrator after appropriate corrections have been made.
