Good afternoon, new to industry would appreciate assistance. I have received several non-paid medicare claims based on CO-96. (Non-covered charge). What/how should I respond?

Well it depends on why it is non covered.  If it is a service that Medicare does not pay for then there is nothing you can do other than bill the secondary if there is one.  Or is it being denied as non covered because of a coding error?
