« on: June 13, 2012, 10:50:31 AM »

2.   Bad Debt Write Off Recovery Adj.
3.   Small Balance Write Off Adj.
4.   Courtesy Discount Write Off Adj.
5.   Employee Discount Write Off Adj.

I have similar ones but I don't do hospital or facility. I also use individual carrier names to identify the par adjustment. And my write off adjustments identify if there is a financial hardship agreement on file (helps to keep my butt off the hook)

example of par adj code:   BCBSADJ

example of financial hardship adj:    FHAdj

What's nice about tracking all adjustments by carrier is that when it's time to re-credential you can pull reports to weigh your options. :)
