Reason Codes


Reason codes appear on an explanation of benefits (EOB) to communicate why a claim has been adjusted. If there is no adjustment to a claim/line, then there is no adjustment reason code.

The letters preceding the number codes identify: Contractual Obligation (CO), Correction or reversal to a prior decision (CR), and Patient Responsibility (PR).
