    Default Duplicate claims

    AAPC: Back to School
    Good Morning Coding world,

    If claims were denied correctly as duplicates. from an compliance standpoint, what should you do with these claims

    I am a little confused. Were they denied CORRECTLY as duplicates? Meaning, have the claims already been processed (paid/denied) by the carrier? If so, then I don't believe there is any need to do anything with them other than file with your other EOB's. If they have not been processed, then I would call the carrier. In our case, we sometimes get denials as dups because they were denied, never corrected and billed again.

    All our claims that are corrected are resubmitted on paper with "corrected claim" written on it. Some ins carriers actually have a different address to send these corrected claims to so that they are not denied as dups.

    Hope this helps!
