What is Denial Code N568

Remark code N568 indicates: Alert: Initial payment based on the Notice of Admission (NOA) under the Bundled Payment Model IV initiative.

Common Causes of RARC N568

Common causes of code N568 are incorrect or incomplete submission of the Notice of Admission (NOA), submission of the NOA outside of the required timeframe, discrepancies between the NOA and the actual services provided, and failure to meet the criteria or guidelines specified under the Bundled Payment Model IV initiative.

Ways to Mitigate Denial Code N568

Ways to mitigate code N568 include ensuring accurate and timely submission of the Notice of Admission (NOA) as per the requirements of the Bundled Payment Model IV initiative. It's crucial to verify that all necessary documentation and patient information are complete and correct before submission. Regular training for staff on the specifics of the Bundled Payment Model IV initiative can help avoid common mistakes that lead to this code. Additionally, implementing a robust review process for all NOAs prior to submission can catch errors or omissions that might trigger this alert. Utilizing software that flags potential issues before submission can also be beneficial. Lastly, maintaining open lines of communication with payers to quickly resolve any issues or questions regarding the NOA can prevent delays in payment.

How to Address Denial Code N568

The steps to address code N568 involve a multi-faceted approach to ensure compliance and optimize revenue. First, review the patient's account to confirm that the NOA was submitted correctly and within the required timeframe. If discrepancies are found, correct and resubmit the NOA as necessary. Next, audit the claim associated with the NOA to verify that all services billed align with the bundled payment model's guidelines. If services were billed outside of these guidelines, adjust the claim accordingly and document the rationale for any changes made. Additionally, engage with the payer to discuss the specifics of the bundled payment model IV initiative as it applies to the patient's care, seeking clarification on payment calculations or discrepancies. This conversation can also serve as an opportunity to negotiate or appeal the initial payment if deemed insufficient based on the provided services. Finally, update your billing system and staff training materials to reflect any new insights or procedures that arise from addressing this code, ensuring smoother handling of similar situations in the future.
