What is Denial Code N800

Remark code N800 indicates that only one service date is allowed per claim.

Common Causes of RARC N800

Common causes of code N800 are submitting multiple service dates on a single claim form when the payer's policy requires each service date to be billed separately, incorrect claim form completion where multiple dates are mistakenly entered for a service that occurred on a single date, and system or clerical errors that duplicate service dates on the claim submission.

Ways to Mitigate Denial Code N800

Ways to mitigate code N800 include ensuring that each claim submission is limited to a single service date. This can be achieved by reviewing and adjusting your billing practices to separate services provided on different dates into individual claims. Implementing a pre-submission check within your billing software to flag multiple service dates on a single claim can help catch and correct these issues before submission. Additionally, training billing staff on the importance of this requirement and how to accurately enter service dates will further reduce the occurrence of this code.

How to Address Denial Code N800

The steps to address code N800 involve reviewing the claim to ensure that it only includes services rendered on a single date. If multiple dates of service are erroneously included, separate the claim into individual claims for each service date. Verify the accuracy of the date(s) of service listed to ensure they match the actual date(s) the services were provided. After corrections are made, resubmit the claim for processing. If the claim was correctly submitted with a single service date initially, double-check the payer's claim submission guidelines to ensure no other errors are present and consider reaching out to the payer for clarification or to dispute the code if necessary.
