Claim Adjustment Reason Codes (CARCs) communicate an adjustment, meaning that they must communicate why a claim or service line was paid differently than it was billed. If there is no adjustment to a claim/line, then there is no adjustment reason code.
Remittance Advice Remark Codes (RARCs) are used to provide additional explanation for an adjustment already described by a CARC or to convey information about remittance processing.
Non-covered charge(s). At least one Remark Code must be provided (may be comprised of either the NCPDP Reject Reason Code, or Remittance Advice Remark Code that is not an ALERT.) Usage: Refer to the 835 Healthcare Policy Identification Segment (loop 2110 Service Payment Information REF), if present.
