What is Denial Code N307

Remark code N307 indicates that the adjudication or payment date is missing, incomplete, or invalid in the submitted documentation or claim. This means that the information provided regarding when the claim was adjudicated (processed or decided upon) or when payment was made is either not present, not fully provided, or does not meet the required standards or formats.

Common Causes of RARC N307

Common causes of code N307 are incomplete submissions where the adjudication or payment date fields are left blank, incorrect entries where the dates provided do not match the standard format or are logically inconsistent (e.g., future dates for past services), and instances where the adjudication or payment information is not properly linked to the claim due to errors in claim filing or processing. Additionally, this code may arise from system errors where the correct information is provided but not correctly captured or transmitted by the billing software.

Ways to Mitigate Denial Code N307

Ways to mitigate code N307 include ensuring that all claim submissions are accompanied by accurate and complete adjudication or payment dates. Implement a pre-submission verification process that checks for the presence and validity of these dates on all claims. Utilize automated software that flags claims missing this critical information before they are sent to the payer. Regularly train billing staff on the importance of including all necessary dates and on how to correctly enter this information into the billing system. Establish a routine audit of claims to identify and correct any recurring issues related to missing or invalid adjudication or payment dates, thereby reducing the likelihood of receiving code N307.

How to Address Denial Code N307

The steps to address code N307 involve a multi-faceted approach to ensure accurate and timely resolution. First, review the claim submission to identify any errors or omissions in the adjudication or payment date fields. If the date is missing, ensure to input the correct date based on the payer's adjudication or the payment received date. In cases where the date is incomplete or invalid, verify the correct format required by the payer and amend the date accordingly.

Next, cross-reference the corrected date with any supporting documentation, such as Explanation of Benefits (EOB) or electronic remittance advice, to ensure consistency and accuracy. If discrepancies are found, reconcile these differences before resubmitting the claim.

After making the necessary corrections, resubmit the claim with the updated adjudication or payment date. It's crucial to document the changes made and any communication with the payer regarding this issue for future reference.

Lastly, monitor the claim's status post-resubmission to ensure it is processed correctly and take note of any feedback or additional requests from the payer. This proactive approach will help in preventing the recurrence of code N307 and improve the overall efficiency of the claims processing workflow.
