What is Denial Code N880

Remark code N880 indicates that the original claim has been closed due to changes in the submitted data. An adjustment claim will be processed under a new claim number.

Common Causes of RARC N880

Common causes of code N880 are inaccuracies or updates in patient information, corrections to billing codes, adjustments in service dates, or modifications in the charges that necessitate the closure of the original claim and the processing of an adjustment claim under a new number.

Ways to Mitigate Denial Code N880

Ways to mitigate code N880 include implementing a robust pre-submission claim review process to ensure accuracy and completeness of all data before initial submission. This involves double-checking patient information, diagnosis codes, procedure codes, and provider details. Utilize automated software that flags discrepancies or missing information for review. Regularly train staff on the latest billing and coding updates to minimize errors. Establish a protocol for quickly addressing any identified issues prior to claim submission. Additionally, fostering clear communication channels between clinical and billing departments can help ensure that any changes in patient treatment or services rendered are accurately reflected in the billing data before the claim is submitted.

How to Address Denial Code N880

The steps to address code N880 involve a meticulous review and comparison of the original claim data against the adjusted claim data to identify the changes that led to the closure of the original claim. Once these changes are pinpointed, ensure that the adjusted claim includes all necessary corrections and is complete with accurate patient information, diagnosis codes, procedure codes, and any relevant modifiers. It's crucial to document the reason for the adjustment clearly in the claim notes to facilitate processing. After submitting the adjusted claim under the new claim number, monitor the claim status closely through the payer's portal or by contacting the payer directly after the standard processing time has elapsed to ensure it is being processed and to address any further issues promptly. Additionally, use this instance as a learning opportunity to review internal processes and training to prevent similar issues in future claims submissions.
