A Detailed Explanation of Non-Coverage (DENC) is a notice that is given to you by a home health agency (HHA), skilled nursing facility (SNF), comprehensive outpatient rehabilitation facility (CORF), or hospice agency when you appeal its decision to end your care to the Quality Improvement Organization (QIO). The DENC explains why the services will no longer be provided and lists any Medicare coverage rules related to your case.
