If the third-party payer doesn't require any supporting documents, the process can take 30 days, notes the Ohio Department of Insurance. This process can take up to 45 days if the payer calls for extra documentation. A payer has the option to pay or deny the claim if the claimant files the claim more than a year after the last service date.
