What is Denial Code N824

Remark code N824 is an indication that Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) data must be submitted through an approved EVV Vendor. This requirement is typically in place to ensure that home health care and personal care services are verified in terms of their occurrence and duration, to comply with state and federal regulations.

Common Causes of RARC N824

Common causes of code N824 are incomplete or missing Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) data, submission of EVV data through incorrect channels, or failure to use an approved EVV vendor for data submission.

Ways to Mitigate Denial Code N824

Ways to mitigate code N824 include ensuring that all necessary Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) data is accurately and completely collected at the point of care. This involves training staff on the proper use of EVV systems and ensuring they understand the importance of timely and accurate data entry. Implementing regular audits of EVV data can help identify and correct any discrepancies before submission. Establishing a clear protocol for the collection and submission of EVV data, including designated personnel responsible for this task, can streamline the process. Additionally, maintaining open communication with your EVV vendor to quickly resolve any technical issues or questions regarding data submission can prevent this code from occurring.

How to Address Denial Code N824

The steps to address code N824 involve ensuring that all Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) data is accurately and promptly submitted through the designated EVV Vendor. Begin by reviewing the current process for capturing and submitting EVV data to identify any gaps or inaccuracies.
