Medicare denied stating " CO151 - Payment adjusted because the payer deems the information submitted does not support this many/frequency of services" . Please give some solutions.

There is no way to advise you without more information.  You didn't even provide what the service was??

This code is usually used when either too many units of something was billed for one DOS, or when something is only allowed to be billed X amount of times in a given time frame. Need more info, like Michele says.

It is not easy, my friend. You have to be more specific when you are requesting for help. No one in this world can recommend a firm resolution without having more information about the Claim and the services.

I guess, you have not worked in denial management before, but have been asked to handle denials by yourself. If so, I pity you. We will help you for sure. But need more info.

Regards
Sriram

You may check UOS (Unit of sevices) on CMS website for possible solutions to denials pertaining to number of units.

Thank You,
