This RAP is a duplicate of a paid RAP or paid, suspended or denied home health claim for the same provider number, patient's Medicare ID number and statement 'From' date but without a cancel date.
Explanation and Suggestion
When using batch file transfer software, have an internal procedure in place to ensure batches of billing transactions are deleted from the software once they are submitted to Medicare. Also, review Medicare Remittance Advice timely, monitor the status of your RAPs and claims through DDE and stay current in posting payments received from Medicare. Do not resubmit an identical billing transaction if you have already corrected the RAP or claim from the Return to Provider (RTP) file.
