Step 3: The insurance provider may have the patient complete and sign forms. Step 4: The insurance company will alert the pharmacy once they have approved the prescription or denied the request. PHARMACY CLAIM REJECTIONS AND FIXES Correct Answer-1- No PCN (Processor Control Number) on the claim. To fix this error, you must find the PCN from the patient's insurance card or insurance company and then edit the claim before resubmitting. You may need to contact the insurance company to get more information on the problem. 2- No Group Number on the claim. To fix the problem, you must find the patient's group number on the insurance card, fix the error, and resubmit the claim. 3- No NPI (National Provider Identifier) or invalid NPI on the claim. The pharmacist must have a contract with the payer. Once the contract is negotiated, the payer will provide an NPI number. This number is then inputted into the pharmacy software and included on all claims. 4-No Cardholder ID Number or invalid Cardholder ID number on the claim. To fix this, you must find the correct Cardholder ID number and resubmit the claim. 5- Plan Limitations Exceeded. If the claim submitted needs prior approval before coverage because of the medication expense, it may be rejected. Additionally, if the medication was already filled in the last 30 days or the quantity dispensed is over the allowed amount for the day supply, the claim may be rejected. To fix these issues, you will need to contact the insurance company to obtain an override or approval on the cost before resubmitting the claim. 6-Waiting Too Long to File the Claim. Most insurance companies allow 60 to 90 days from time of service to file a claim. When claims are filed past that time, the claim may be rejected. 7-Incorrect Patient Information. Any error in patient information will trigger a claim rejection. Commonerrors include incorrect name, days supply, provider, date of birth, etc. 8-Coverage has expired. If the patient does not pay premiums or no longer works at employer-provided insurance, the patient's coverage may not be current. 10-Coverage limits have been exceeded. The insurance plan may have a limit on the amount of coverage they provide for each patient annually or for a lifetime. The claim may be rejected if the coverage limits have been exceeded. 11-Refills. In some cases, the patient may be trying to get a prescription refilled when it either is not refillable or within too short of a time frame. The insurance payer may reject this claim. 12-Invalid Amount. The prescription may be written for an invalid amount of the medication. Most insurance companies cover only a 30-day supply of medication. Mail-order prescriptions may cover a 90- day supply. The amount depends on the actual drug.

If the responsible parent has no coverage for the child's healthcare expenses, but that parent's spouse does, that parent's spouse's plan is the primary plan. If a court decree states that both parents are responsible for the child's healthcare expenses/coverage, the Birthday Rule determines the order of benefits. If the court decree states that the parents have joint custody without specifying that one parent has healthcare coverage responsibility, the Birthday Rule determines the ordre of benefits. If there is no court decree allocating healthcare coverage responsibility for the child, the order of benefits for the child is as follows: a. the plan covering the custodial parent; b. the plan covering the custodial parent's spouse; c. the plan covering non-custodial parent; and then, d. the plan covering the noncustodial parent's spouse hood suould be operated ?
