Please keep an eye out for claim status updates in the weeks following your submission. Reviewers may reach out for additional documentation or clarifications that will complete your submission.

Generally, you can expect your reimbursement to be issued within 30 days of submission, this is only for claims that don’t require any follow-up. Reimbursement turnaround time will vary depending on the volume of activity in the program and time spent gathering compliant documentation. 

The Branded Program Exporter Manual is a great resource to use in this process.

As always, please contact your Branded Team with any additional eligibility and claim questions/ concerns.
