What is Denial Code N560

Remark code N560 indicates that the pilot program mandates the submission of either an interim or final claim within 60 days following the Notice of Admission. However, such a claim was not received within this specified timeframe.

Common Causes of RARC N560

Common causes of code N560 are delays in claim submission processes, misunderstandings regarding the timeline for the pilot program's claim submission requirements, or administrative oversights in tracking the Notice of Admission date. Additionally, technical issues with electronic health record (EHR) systems or billing software may impede timely claim submission. Lack of awareness or confusion about the specific requirements of the pilot program among billing staff could also contribute to this issue.

Ways to Mitigate Denial Code N560

Ways to mitigate code N560 include implementing a robust tracking system that flags each Notice of Admission and automatically schedules follow-up reminders for claim submission within the specified 60-day window. Additionally, training staff on the importance of timely claim submission and conducting regular audits to ensure compliance with the pilot program's requirements can further reduce the occurrence of this code. Establishing a dedicated team responsible for monitoring pilot program claims can also ensure that all claims are submitted within the required timeframe, thus preventing delays or denials associated with code N560.

How to Address Denial Code N560

The steps to address code N560 involve initiating a thorough review of the claim submission timeline immediately upon receiving this code. Begin by verifying the date of the Notice of Admission (NOA) to ensure accuracy. Next, assess your internal claims processing timeline to identify any delays or errors in the submission process. If the claim was indeed submitted within the required 60-day window but was not received by the payer, gather all relevant submission evidence, such as electronic submission receipts or tracking numbers, and prepare to submit an appeal. In the case that the claim was not submitted on time, expedite the processing of an interim or final claim, ensuring all required documentation and coding are accurate to prevent further delays. Additionally, implement a tracking mechanism for future NOAs to ensure timely submission of claims within the specified timeframe to avoid recurrence of this issue.
