What is Denial Code N767

Remark code N767 indicates that the Medicaid state mandates the provider must be enrolled in the Medicaid program of the member's state before any claims can be processed for benefits.

Common Causes of RARC N767

Common causes of code N767 are:

1. The provider is not enrolled in the Medicaid program of the state where the member is covered.

2. The provider's enrollment in the Medicaid program has lapsed or was not renewed in a timely manner.

3. The claim was submitted before the provider's enrollment was fully processed and approved by the Medicaid state program.

4. Incorrect or outdated provider information was used when enrolling in the Medicaid state program, leading to discrepancies in the claim process.

5. The provider is enrolled in Medicaid, but not in the specific state program where the member is eligible for benefits.

Ways to Mitigate Denial Code N767

Ways to mitigate code N767 include ensuring that all healthcare providers are properly enrolled in the Medicaid programs of the states where their patients reside. This can be achieved by regularly reviewing and updating the enrollment status of providers in each state's Medicaid program. Additionally, implementing a system to verify the Medicaid enrollment status of providers before scheduling appointments for Medicaid patients can prevent this issue. Training administrative staff on the importance of this requirement and how to check for compliance can also help in avoiding this code. Establishing a routine audit process to identify and address any lapses in Medicaid enrollment promptly will further mitigate the risk of encountering code N767.

How to Address Denial Code N767

The steps to address code N767 involve initiating the provider enrollment process for the specific Medicaid state program in which the member is enrolled. This process typically includes completing the necessary application forms, which can often be found on the state's Medicaid website, and gathering all required documentation, such as licenses, certifications, and proof of practice location. It's crucial to ensure that all information provided is accurate and up-to-date to avoid delays. After submission, monitor the application status regularly and be prepared to respond to any requests for additional information or clarification. Once the enrollment is approved, resubmit the claim with the provider's newly assigned Medicaid identification number. Additionally, consider setting up a system to verify Medicaid enrollment status for providers in your practice to prevent future occurrences of this code.
