Q: What steps can we take to avoid reject reason code 36428?
You can refer to Part A reason code lookup
for a description associated with the Medicare Part A reason code. Simply enter a valid reason code into the box and click the submit button.
A: A claim for mammography screening services has been submitted, and either the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) certification records need to be updated or the mammography services are outside the scope of the FDA certificate on file.
There are two types of mammography services:
1. Computer aided detection/film
Refer to the CMS Medicare Learning Network (MLN) Preventive Services
resource for coding and billing information.
Ensure your FDA certification is for the "type" of mammography service you're providing, and that the service is within the dates covered by the certificate.
• If your certification has expired, it must be updated prior to providing and billing mammography services
• Certification information may be updated with First Coast, via mail or fax:

Please allow at least seven business days for certification data to be updated.
