What is Denial Code MA112

Remark code MA112 indicates that the submitted claim contains missing, incomplete, or invalid information regarding the group practice. This could mean that the necessary details about the group practice that either performed or billed for the service are not properly documented on the claim form. To resolve this issue, the healthcare provider must review the claim, correct the group practice information, and resubmit it for processing.

Common Causes of RARC MA112

Common causes of code MA112 are typically related to errors or omissions in the submission of group practice information on healthcare claims. These may include:

1. Incorrect group practice name or identification number entered on the claim.

2. Group practice information not matching the information on file with the payer.

3. Omission of required group practice details, such as the tax identification number (TIN) or National Provider Identifier (NPI) for the group.

4. Use of outdated or inactive group practice information due to changes in practice status or mergers/acquisitions.

5. Failure to associate the rendering provider with the correct group practice within the billing system.

6. Submission of claims with group practice information that is not properly linked to the individual provider's credentials.

7. Data entry errors that lead to mismatched or garbled information being transmitted to the payer.

Ways to Mitigate Denial Code MA112

Ways to mitigate code MA112 include ensuring that all claims submitted have accurate and complete group practice information. This can be achieved by double-checking that the group practice name, address, and tax identification number (TIN) are correctly entered into the practice management system. Regularly updating the system with any changes in group practice details is also crucial. Additionally, implementing a pre-claim submission verification process where claims are audited for completeness can help catch any errors or omissions before they are sent to the payer. Training staff on the importance of entering precise group practice information and providing them with easy access to the correct details can further reduce the likelihood of this code appearing on remittance advice.

How to Address Denial Code MA112

The steps to address code MA112 involve verifying and updating the group practice information in your billing system. First, review the claim to identify any missing or incorrect information regarding the group practice, such as the group name, address, or tax identification number. Cross-reference this information with your practice management system and the information on file with the payer.

If discrepancies are found, correct the information on the claim and resubmit it. If the information on the claim is accurate, contact the payer to determine why the information was considered incomplete or invalid. It may be necessary to update the group practice information that the payer has on file or to clarify any misunderstandings regarding the group's credentials.

In some cases, additional documentation may be required to validate the group practice information. Prepare and submit any required documentation promptly to avoid further delays in claim processing. Ensure that all future claims include the correct and complete group practice information to prevent recurrence of this issue.
