The sum of covered days and non-covered days must equal the statement covers period. When the "from" and "through" dates are not the same on an inpatient or Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) bill types, the number of days represented must equal the sum of the covered days plus the non-covered days, unless the patient status is 30. If the patient status is 30, one additional day is used in the calculation.
Verify billing, and if appropriate correct the claim or resubmit.
