Submitting claims to Alberta Health

Physicians in Alberta must submit claims to Alberta Health in order to be reimbursed for the medical services they provide to patients insured through the Alberta Health Care Insurance Plan (AHCIP). Sending claims in with the required information will allow the Ministry of Health in Alberta to quickly process them and send payments back to the care provider. In order to speed up the submission and assessment process, Alberta Health Services use an electronic communication system called H-Link.

Shadow Billing / ARP

Some practitioners working in Alberta engage in an ARP or Alternate Relationship Plan where they are compensated using an Alternate method but are still required to submit their claims through H-Link. Sometimes this is called "Shadow Billing" as these claims are generally come back paid at zero or not paid as the physician is being compensated in a different method.

Submitting Shadow Billing claims through ClinicAid is very simple and physicians can manage both their Shadow Billing and their normal FFS for Fee For Service claims all in one ClinicAid account but using multiple different BAs. There are no additional charge or fees for doing Shadow Billing or using multiple BAs in 1 ClinicAid account.
