Providers must include Claim Adjustment Segments (CAS) related group codes, Claim Adjustment Reason Codes (CARC) and associated adjustment amounts on MSP 837 claims sent to Medicare for processing. This includes all adjustments made by the primary payer, which explains why the claim's billed amount was not fully paid.
If the primary payer denied the service(s), submit the appropriate CARC to explain the reason for the denial. Certain CARC combinations cannot be processed by Medicare and may result in a denial due to insufficient explanation or conflicting information. Claims denied for these reasons must be resubmitted with the correct CARC codes. Do not include CARC codes that are not applicable to the claim. A full set of CARC codes is available.
Note: Noridian cannot inform providers the correct CARC code to use.
