2021 MSP Close-off & Remittance Schedule
How do MSP close-off dates work?
The ministry follows a semi-monthly schedule for processing MSP claims submitted by physicians. Submissions that are received by the close-off date will typically be processed for approval on the next remittance statement.
When practitioners are preparing to submit their claims to MSP, it is important to note the MSP-designated holidays (noted below) 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 close-offs for claims submission through Teleplan.

When should I submit claims in your system to ensure they will be transmitted by the deadline?
We recommend that you submit all your claims by the day before the close-off date to guarantee the claims are transmitted by the deadline.
When will I be paid if I submit billings by the close-off dates?
Remittances are typically posted 7-10 days after the cut-off date. Payments go out a few days after. Payments will be directly deposited into your bank account by the Ministry on the next payment date after the close-off date. Check the calendar above for the exact dates.
