What is Denial Code N375

Remark code N375 indicates that there is missing, incomplete, or invalid questionnaire/information required to determine the eligibility of a dependent.

Common Causes of RARC N375

Common causes of code N375 are incomplete submissions of the required documentation to verify a dependent's eligibility, failure to provide all necessary information on the questionnaire, errors in the information provided on the eligibility questionnaire, and submission of outdated or invalid documentation for dependent verification.

Ways to Mitigate Denial Code N375

Ways to mitigate code N375 include implementing a comprehensive pre-registration process that ensures all necessary questionnaires and information are collected before the patient's visit. Utilize electronic health records (EHR) and patient portals to facilitate the submission and verification of this information. Regularly train staff on the importance of collecting complete and accurate data, emphasizing the specific details required for dependent eligibility verification. Additionally, establish a routine audit process to identify and rectify any recurring issues with data collection or documentation practices.

How to Address Denial Code N375

The steps to address code N375 involve a multi-faceted approach to ensure the necessary information is collected and validated to satisfy the requirements for determining dependent eligibility. Firstly, initiate a review of the patient's file to identify any previously submitted documentation that may pertain to the dependent's eligibility. If the required information is not found, proceed to contact the patient or the responsible party directly, specifying the exact information or documentation that is missing or incomplete. Provide clear instructions on how they can submit the required information, including any specific forms that need to be filled out.

Simultaneously, it's crucial to establish a deadline for when the information should be received to avoid further delays in processing. If the information pertains to a common issue that can be resolved internally, such as verifying the dependent's relationship to the insured, consider leveraging internal resources or databases to fill in the gaps.

Once the required information is received, ensure it is thoroughly reviewed for completeness and accuracy before resubmitting the claim. If the claim is resubmitted electronically, confirm that all attachments are properly included and clearly labeled to facilitate the review process.

In cases where there is a delay in obtaining the necessary information from the patient or responsible party, it's advisable to document all communication attempts and responses. This documentation can be crucial if there is a need to appeal the decision or provide evidence of due diligence in attempting to rectify the issue.

Finally, consider implementing a proactive strategy to prevent similar issues in the future. This could involve updating the patient intake process to include a more detailed verification of dependent eligibility or providing additional training to staff on the importance of collecting complete and accurate information at the point of service.
