    Does anyone know if there is a time issue of how long a practice has to keep their EOBs?

    Most places I worked they were kept for 7 years in case of an IRS audit. The last place I worked kept them for 2 years because that is how long some insurance companies have to recoup money. I 'm curious in other views as well. Lora

    I scan mine into the computer and shred the hardcopies as soon as they're posted and I'm done with them.
