service or as provided in (b) of this section. Except as provided in (c) of this section, a claim may not be paid if it
is not filed promptly; an inference to the contrary may not be drawn from AS 09.10.053
, AS 09.50.250 - 09.50.300, or AS 37.25.010
- (b) In accordance with (a) of this section, a claim may be considered to be filed promptly if (1) the claim was filed more

an administrative hearing officer finds that the beneficiary was eligible for service under AS 47.07 or AS 47.25.120

is filed within 12 months after the date that the court or administrative finding is rendered. The beneficiary is
responsible for notifying the medical provider of the judicial or administrative finding. The department shall make a
good faith effort to notify the medical provider of the judicial or administrative finding if the department has reason
to believe that services have been provided to the beneficiary.
- (c) The commissioner of health and social services may authorize payment to a medical provider of a claim not promptly
filed, upon good cause shown.
- (d) In this section,
- (1) "beneficiary" means a person who is found to be eligible to receive medical services under AS 47.07 or AS 47.25.120
