What is Denial Code N714

Remark code N714 indicates that a required report is missing from the submitted documentation.

Common Causes of RARC N714

Common causes of code N714 (Missing report) are incomplete documentation submission, failure to attach required clinical reports or diagnostic results with the claim, and errors in electronic data interchange (EDI) transmission that result in the omission of attached reports.

Ways to Mitigate Denial Code N714

Ways to mitigate code N714 include implementing a comprehensive checklist for all required documentation before claim submission. Regular training sessions for coding and billing staff on documentation requirements can ensure awareness and adherence to necessary protocols. Utilizing electronic health record (EHR) systems with built-in alerts for missing reports or documentation can also help prevent this issue. Additionally, conducting periodic audits of claims before submission can catch and correct any missing reports, reducing the likelihood of receiving code N714.

How to Address Denial Code N714

The steps to address code N714 involve a systematic approach to ensure the missing report is located and submitted promptly to avoid delays in claim processing. Initially, identify the specific report that is missing by reviewing the claim details and any accompanying documentation. Once identified, check internal records or systems to locate the report. If the report is not found internally, reach out to the department or individual responsible for creating or maintaining the report. Upon locating the report, review it for completeness and accuracy to ensure it meets the necessary requirements. Next, submit the report to the appropriate entity, following their submission guidelines closely to prevent further issues. After submission, document the actions taken to resolve code N714 in your system for future reference and follow up to ensure the claim's processing progresses without additional delays.
