What is Denial Code N154

Remark code N154 is an alert indicating that the payment process was delayed because the provider's mailing address needed to be corrected. This code serves as a notification to the provider that the address issue was the reason for the delay in payment.

Common Causes of RARC N154

Common causes of code N154 are incorrect or outdated provider address information on file with the payer, data entry errors when submitting the provider's address, or recent changes to the provider's mailing address that were not communicated to the payer in a timely manner.

Ways to Mitigate Denial Code N154

Ways to mitigate code N154 include maintaining up-to-date contact information with all payers. Regularly verify and update the provider's mailing address in the payer's system, ensuring that any changes to the address are communicated promptly. Implement a routine check, perhaps quarterly, to confirm that the address on file with each insurance company is current and matches the address on file with the United States Postal Service. Additionally, use electronic remittance advice (ERA) when possible to reduce reliance on physical mail for payment notifications.

How to Address Denial Code N154

The steps to address code N154 involve verifying and updating the provider's mailing address information. Begin by reviewing the address on file to ensure it is current, accurate, and matches the address format required by the payer. If a correction is needed, promptly update the address in the practice management system and with all payers, including Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurers. After updating the address, resubmit any claims that were delayed due to this issue. Additionally, implement a process for regularly verifying the accuracy of the provider's address on file to prevent future delays in payment.
