When you submit a claim to us through electronic data interchange (EDI) and there’s a problem with the information submitted, we’ll send an immediate denial that will be noted in your electronic 277CA and submitter reports. This will allow you to quickly correct any errors and submit a new claim.
Denials related to eligibility
Critical member information fields, such as the patient’s first and last name, date of birth, and gender, must always be an exact match with what we have on file. If the member information on your claim doesn’t match what we have in our system, you’ll receive a message in your electronic 277CA and submitter reports outlining the issue.
Other immediate denials
In addition to eligibility mismatch denials, we will also start denying claims for two other types of errors:
New submitter report codes
We’ve added several new codes to your electronic 277CA and submitter reports to help you better understand why a claim was denied.
|N70007||The patient’s first name, last name, and date of birth do not match any member listed on this policy.|
|N70008||The patient’s last name does not match any member listed on this policy.|
