Keeping of Medicare and insurance eob's.

Stephanie Posted Tue 27th of July, 2010 08:22:39 AM

Does anyone have any idea how long we need to keep the paper trail on the Medicare & insurance eob's. I've heard different opions some say 5-yrs some 7-yrs. Any feedback would be appreciated

Seven years seems to be the time you need to retain your EOB documents. DocuVantage ( and San Diego County Medical Society ( are some of the organizations who have clearly specified that EOBs should be stored for a period of seven years. You may contact your payers to know what they have to say on this.
