UHC denied a claim stating that the primary diagnosis is an inappropriate primary diagnosis, so after pulling the documentation and seeing there were other diagnosis in the documentation can I re-bill a corrected claim with one of the other diagnosis codes as the primary diagnosis that is allowed by UHC?

Thank you for your question.
Yes, you may rebill a corrected claim. When rebilling, ensure you submit the supporting documentation for the corrected primary diagnosis. Bring attention to the payer that you are a submitting a corrected claim so it does not reject as a duplicate claim.
