    Question Billing records retention

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone know how long we have to keep billing records (super bills, insurance eob's, daily financial reports). We are a physician medical practice in Pittsburgh, PA. Where can I find this information? I have been looking everywhere and can only find info on medical record retention (7 years).

    Default Record retention

    Check on your states medical board or HIPAA website. They have a law that states how long records should be keep. Ususally 7 years from the last date of service.
